Save Time & Straighten Your Smile, Too

  • April 1, 2018

How long do you want to wait for your new and improved — and straighter — smile?

With traditional braces, it could take two years or longer to complete your smile transformation.

Yet, it is possible to change your smile in one year or less, and for some patients, it’s possible to have straight teeth in a matter of months. How?

You can come to Total Dental Care of South Carolina and get Fastbraces®!

Our dentist, Dr. Doug Forbes, has completed extra training so he can offer this revolutionary orthodontic option for our patients here in Columbia, SC.

To find out what Fastbraces could do for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Forbes by calling 803-272-4162 today!


A New Smile in 20 Weeks?

For many patients, that is entirely possible.

It may take more time depending on the severity of your alignment problems and the particular kinds of issues you are facing. One thing that is consistent for all our patients is that Fastbraces can move teeth and change smiles in a fraction of the time it would take with traditional orthodontic treatments.

Fastbraces were developed by Dr. Anthony D. Viazis, an orthodontist from Texas. General dentists and specialists all over the world now use Fastbraces to transform their patients’ smiles.

You can take advantage of this amazing system at Total Dental Care of South Carolina. Dr. Forbes has years of experience using Fastbraces to make smiles better for teens and adults in and around Columbia.


What Can It Do?

Fastbraces can fix any problem that traditional braces can — Fastbraces just does the job in less time!

You can make your crooked teeth look straight.

You can close gaps in your smile or add some room between crowded teeth.

You can fix overbites and underbites. And you can close open bites and get crossbites in line.


How is This Possible?

Like traditional braces, Fastbraces use a system of brackets and wires. The difference is in the design of the brackets and the high-tech wires used with Fastbraces.

Standard braces have square or rectangular brackets. When wires are attached to the bracket, they will move teeth in stages.

During the first stage, braces move the crowns of the teeth. This can take 12 months or more depending on an individual’s situation. The roots of the teeth are realigned during the second stage. This too can take 12 months or longer.

In contrast, Fastbraces use a triangular bracket. This affects how the pressure is applied to your teeth. It allows Dr. Forbes to move your crowns and roots at the same time. This dramatically reduces the time needed to complete your treatment.

One thing that won’t change is that you will need to wear a retainer after your braces come off. This is necessary to prevent what we call relapse. This occurs when your teeth start to move back toward their original positions. By wearing your retainer as directed, you can keep your new and improved smile for the rest of your life.


How Much Longer Will You Wait For Your New Smile?

If you are an adult who has wished for straighter teeth for years, stop waiting. The sooner you call 803-272-4162 or contact us online, the sooner you can begin your orthodontic care with Dr. Forbes.
