Fast Braces

At Smile Quest Dentist Bentleigh we provides Fastbraces services. Unlike other systems like invisalign, Fastbraces Technology allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the beginning of treatment by torturing them from the very first appointment. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases, just a few months. It has been developed and tested over the past 20 years and is now becoming available in countries around the world.

Fastbraces technology is fast, safe, easy and affordable treatment that comes with a lifetime satisfaction commitment from most of the doctor providers. With the patented triangular design of the braces, cutting edge techniques and a special heat- activated wire; this new technology is revolutionizing the field of orthodontics.

Traditional braces move teeth into position in two stages, usually over a period of about two years. In the first year, the crown of the tooth is moved into alignment. In the second year, treatment addresses the position of the root of the tooth. The brackets used with Fastbraces work on different mechanical principle altogether. The patented system uses an innovative bracket and a specially shaped wire to correct the position of the tooth, from the beginning of treatment. This combination is key in realigning the root and crown simultaneously.

The Fastbraces technology brackets have an elevated slot and a unique elbow design. The shape of the bracket is critical because it literally changes the force-flexibility equation. The square shape of conventional brackets defines the distance between the brackets and that distance determines the flexibility of the wire.

The triangular shape of the Fastbraces patented bracket increases the distance between the individual brackets, which increase the flexibility of the wire. Additionally, the brackets help deliver torquing and tipping forces to the root of the tooth from the beginning of treatment. These fundamental differences allow treatment to be completed from 3 months to about a year. For the consumer looking for an aesthetic cosmetic dentistry, Fastbraces clear ceramic brackets are also available and offer the same technology advantages of moving teeth as the Fastbraces metal brackets.

Twenty years of history, thousands of consecutively treated patients and university research have shown that Fast braces are not only safe but offer many additional benefits. Patients oftentimes experience less discomfort and there are no more risks with Fastbraces than those associated with traditional braces.Additionally,the fact that the braces are on for less time means that there is possibly less chance of tooth decay due to improper oral hygiene. Treatment with Fastbraces technology improves the patient’s lifestyle because treatment typically takes just a few visits at the doctor’s office. Less doctor visits mean less money spent, less time wasted. Another remarkable benefit is the reduction of retainer usage. When the braces come off one needs to wear the retainers at least 15 minutes a day. Results will vary from patient to patient.
