The Way To Fastbraces
Orthodontics have come a long way since you were a teen. Gone are the days of headgear that conjured images of Frankenstein’s monster, “silverware” that covered the entire tooth, and years upon years of treatment. These days, there are alternatives. One alternative that we are proud to offer at Waterford Family Dental Care is Fastbraces, a speedy solution for crooked teeth.
While traditional braces have been effectively used for decades, they weren’t without faults. Traditional braces move teeth in two stages: the exposed tooth in one and the tooth root in another. This can result in treatments lasting years and years. That means more trips to the dentist or orthodontist, more time away from school or work, and more money for all of those appointments.
The Fastbraces Difference
Fastbraces have been used to correct bite problems for over 20 years. What makes Fastbraces unique is their shape; instead of a square bracket, Fastbraces utilizes triangular brackets. Another perk of Fastbraces is that they only require a single flexible wire, making them more subtle than traditional. The combination of bracket shape and wire allow both exposed tooth surfaces and roots to be moved at the same time. What might take over two years with traditional braces could take as little as six months with Fastbraces.
The Perks Continue
The most obvious benefit of Fastbraces is that you can have the smile you want in a fraction of the time, but the list goes on. Fastbraces also cost less than traditional braces and cause less discomfort (despite moving teeth at such a rapid rate). You have nothing to lose!
