What are fastbraces?
Fastbraces is a new form of braces treatment that can straighten your teeth in as little as six months. It is typically used for adults who are wanting their smile rejuvenated without spending over two years with traditional braces. With patented technology, fastbraces uses special wiring and bracket systems that can help align your teeth in a quicker manner than metal braces.
A better solution for adults
For people who have biting issues, or crooked teeth, the idea of straightening them often involves needing to go through a long process (sometimes two-years) with traditional braces. However, what if there was a solution that would allow you to fix your bite without having to struggle with braces for years? The reality is that modern technology has finally caught up with traditional custom braces.
Fastbraces works just as well as the traditional form of braces, but in a way that allows your teeth to be straightened much more quickly (in as little as six months in most cases). While this is a new and improved technology, it has been around for decades and Fastbraces have existed for roughly 20 years. This process has been effectively used in roughly 30 countries around the world. The difference between braces and Fastbraces is that Fastbraces get your teeth straight in a much quicker and shorter period of time, while braces can take years to make a difference. Therefore, as an adult, who wants to straighten your teeth, your best option is this new solution.
This improved technology of six-month braces allows you to straighten your teeth at our Richmond office without having to go through years of having metal in your mouth. With that in mind, is important to take a look at some of the differences between old and custom traditional braces, and this newer technology. The most significant change is in the type of brackets that are bonded to the surface of your teeth. With regular braces, the brackets are square and teeth are moved in multiple stages. Depending on how many stages of movement the teeth need to go through, this treatment option can take years.
Fastbraces uses triangular brackets to help move teeth instead. In this way, the space in between each bracket is less, which allows for the teeth to come together more quickly, and get you that beautiful smile that you’ve been longing for. Essentially, all of the stages of treatment are completed at one time, rather than more slowly and in stages (which is why the procedure can be complete in as little as six months).
Our patients appreciate this aspect of the treatment because it is faster and more efficient. The other difference with the technology comes down to the wires that are used. In this case, square wire is used and this allows for there to be more flexibility. Instead of needing to have wires adjusted constantly, the flexibility of these wires make it possible for the movement of your teeth to become more fluid. As a result, we can upright the roots starting at the beginning stages of the procedure. On the other hand, with traditional braces there are multiple wires that are constantly being adjusted, which causes discomfort in the mouth.
An Affordable Alternative to Traditional Braces
The most important difference between traditional braces and Fastbraces is that traditional braces can take up to 24 months to work and straighten your teeth, our solution fastbraces solution can straighten your teeth in as little as a few weeks or a few months. As a result, fastbraces typically have a lower cost than traditional braces. This allows our patients to achieve the smiles that they are looking for without having to break their bank account.

Are fastbraces effective?

What can happen if your teeth move too fast?
Too much stress on teeth can lead to bone loss, and possible loosening of teeth. This can lead to a myriad of problems including periodontal (gum) problems as well as potential tooth loss. If you are feeling severe mobility with your teeth, you need to contact your treating orthodontist immediately.
Can fastbraces straighten my teeth faster than Invisalign?
The time to straighten teeth is quicker with fastbraces in comparison with Invisalign. Fastbraces also has the ability to correct biting issues more thoroughly than Invisalign currently can. Although cosmetically Invisalign looks better, fastbraces has its own advantages as well.
If my teeth feel loose with fastbraces, is that a bad sign?
If your teeth feel loose during your tightening appointments, it is usually a normal sign. It is always best to check with your dentist or orthodontist to make sure that the mobility is within normal limits. When teeth start moving into their proper positions there are times when they will start feeling slightly mobile. This is due to bone atrophy as teeth slowly move through the bone tissue surrounding your teeth. Too much tooth loosening, however, is not normal, and needs to be evaluated by your clinician.
