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.

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!

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.

The root system moves first, followed by the crowns. This method takes much longer to accomplish its goals.
