Fastbraces were developed by an orthodontist in Texas and are very popular in that area of the country. Fastbraces have been tested and proven safe for children and adults for the past 20 years!
The first unique characteristic of Fastbraces is that they are designed to straighten teeth and correct your bite in just 3 months to a year. They have this unique ability due to their different design. Old technology braces are usually square in shape and typically move the top of the tooth in the first year and the root of the tooth the second year, thus requiring at least 2 years of braces. Fastbraces are triangular in shape and gently allow the top and the root of the tooth to move at the same time. Therefore, Fastbraces can safely do in one year what slower braces require two years to accomplish.
A great way to think about this newer technology is to compare it to traveling. If someone were going to travel to California they could drive and it would take a day. Another option would be to fly to California and get there in a couple of hours. Fastbraces are like an airplane, allowing your teeth to straighten faster because of their amazing technology.
Many people assume Fastbraces will be painful because they move teeth faster. This is not true! Flying a plane is not more painful than driving a car, it’s just faster. In fact, university studies have shown Fastbraces to be less sensitive than traditional braces.
The second unique characteristic of Fastbraces is the cost. Fastbraces cost less than slower braces. The average cost of traditional braces is about $6,000. Invisible braces tend to cost more and take longer. Fastbraces cost under $4,000 for the average case.
