You want straight teeth, but you need braces.

The Fast Track to a New Smile
We won’t call Fastbraces a shortcut, because it’s still moving your teeth like traditional braces. Brackets and wires are working together to push and pull your teeth where they need to be for a healthier and more attractive smile.
Fastbraces isn’t strictly a cosmetic service. It can fix the same problems as other braces, such as:
- Cross bites
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Open bites
The biggest difference between Fastbraces and traditional braces is the time it takes to make those changes. Fastbraces can often complete the job in less than half of time it would take other braces.
It’s sort of like the difference between a world-class marathoner and an average Joe running a race. Both will cover the same ground, but one will definitely be finished before the other.
How Fastbraces Work
Standard braces have been around for so long for one simple reason. They will work for almost anyone.
The brackets are bonded in place, and the archwires connect them. This system will move teeth in stages. First, it takes about a year to align the crowns of your teeth. Then, some adjustments are made to shift the position of your roots, which take about another year or so.
Fastbraces also uses brackets and wires, but they are a little different.
Most braces used rectangular brackets, but Fastbraces’ brackets have a unique triangular shape along with a high-tech archwire.
That combination changes how pressure is applied to your teeth. As a result of these changes, you are moving your crown and roots simultaneously. In many cases, this will do more than just cut your treatment time in half.
In fact, some patients can complete their treatment in as little as 20 weeks — less than half a year. Your particular treatment may not be done in that short amount of time, but it’s a pretty safe bet that you’ll get to the finish sooner with Fastbraces.
