Does your child have crooked teeth? Are you concerned that he or she may need months, if not years, of orthodontic treatment to get a straighter smile? If you answered yes, we may have a solution for your child. We are proud to offer Fastbraces® to our patients and, as the name implies, they can make a patient’s orthodontic treatment seem very fast.

Traditional braces work by moving the crown of the tooth first, and the root second. Fastbraces, on the other hand, uses their patented system of triangular brackets to help the tooth’s crown and root move together, which can drastically reduce your child’s treatment time. Where traditional braces could take months or years, Fastbraces may be able to accomplish the same treatment in a fraction of the time.

Another benefit of Fastbraces is that their brackets could be smoother and more comfortable than those of traditional braces. Because of this, your lips tongue and cheeks may not get as irritated during your treatment. These braces could potentially be safely used on almost any dental alignment issue, despite its severity.

If you live near the Orem, Utah, area and would like more information about Fastbraces, or would like to have a consultation with our dentist, Dr. R. Bruce Howell, please call a member of our team at 801-802-7200. At Orem Pediatric Dentistry, we want your child to have a healthy and confident smile for years to come.
