Why have braces become popular with individuals of non-traditional age? It's simple—smart people value oral health and straight smiles! That's what your Palm Beach Gardens dentist Dr. Sharon Gilbert at My Downtown Dental Care offers Fastbraces, wonderful alternatives to conventional metal or ceramic braces. Read below if you think they might be right for you or your children's smile.
One out of every five...
While we traditionally think of braces as something that younger people use, a full 20 percent of orthodontic patients are adults, says the American Association of Orthodontists. Informed dental patients understand that straight smiles are healthy smiles, and how your teeth look and feel can inspire self-confidence and a winning image. Fastbraces are an effective treatment option for both children and adults.
To facilitate your ideal smile, Dr. Gilbert at My Downtown Dental Care in Palm Beach Gardens will evaluate your teeth to see if braces are the best treatment. Many adults and teens qualify for braces and opt for Fastbraces to address their mild to moderate orthodontic issues.
What are Fastbraces?
Fastbraces are bracket and wire braces which exert dynamic physical forces on the entire tooth. Unlike conventional braces which move tooth roots first and then the crowns, the triangular brackets featured with Fastbraces accomplish similar results in half the time. Patients with Fastbraces say that they feel comfortable during treatment and love the affordability of this amazing system!
What qualifies you for these braces?
Healthy teeth and gums are critical to success as are good oral hygiene habits. Also, you must adhere to your treatment plan and see your dentist for progress checks as needed.
Finally, Fastbraces address a variety of smile alignment issues such as:
- Tooth rotation
- Protruding front teeth
- Orthodontic relapse
Your dentists at My Downtown Dental Care will follow your case carefully from beginning to end and likely will ask you to wear a retainer afterward to keep your new smile perfectly straight. They also wish to see their orthodontic patients as usual for cleanings and check-ups.
