If your child has poorly-aligned teeth, our pediatric dentist may recommend Fastbraces® treatment. The innovative Fastbraces system can straighten teeth in a fraction of the time that traditional braces typically require, helping your child achieve a more beautiful, better-functioning smile in a matter of months.
Traditional braces move the crown (visible portion) of a tooth first, with the root section following. On average, treatment ranges anywhere from 18 to 30 months. Fastbraces, on the other hand, work by utilizing state-of-the-art technology and revolutionary patented bracket designs to move the entire tooth at once. Fastbraces also employ heat-activated archwires. These use a patient’s natural body heat to help teeth move more quickly and comfortably. Together, these unique features allow for a more accelerated process that doesn’t sacrifice excellent results.
Because of reduced treatment times, Fastbraces is often a more affordable orthodontic option for your family. The shorter process also requires fewer appointments for adjustments, meaning fewing interruptions to your child’s busy after-school schedule.
