With safety in mind, FASTBRACES® Technology was developed to straighten teeth differently – allowing for a fast, safe and affordable solution.
FASTBRACES® Technology high performance bracket systems allow for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the beginning of treatment by torquing them from the very first appointment. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in times measured in weeks or months. They have been developed and tested over the past 25 years and available in multiple countries around the world.
FASTBRACES® Technology is fast, safe, easy and affordable treatment. 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 by now allowing both general dentists and specialists orthodontists to offer very efficient nonextraction comprehensive orthodontic treatment to their patients.
The biggest question for a child or adult who may need braces would probably be “how quickly can I get them off?”
Can fast, comprehensive orthodontic treatment now be done in about 20 weeks? While there are no miracle shortcuts in orthodontics, Fastbraces® Technology is different by design, which allows for treatment time to be measured in weeks, not years.
The old braces are usually square in shape and typically move the crown of the tooth in the first year and the root of the tooth towards its final position in the second year, thus requiring about two years of treatment. Fastbraces® Technology gently allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final position from the onset of treatment, thus treatment could be completed in just a matter of weeks for some patients!
University research has shown that Fastbraces® Technology has low mean frictional forces, a clear-cut reduction in sliding friction and pain reduction with fitting front and back teeth together. Thousands of patients have been treated over the past 25 years.
After treatment, the patient will start out by wearing the retainers every night during a normal 8-hour sleep period (“Teeth Pajamas”) or just in the shower for 20 minutes every day (“Tooth Shampoo”), as per the doctor’s instructions. Within a year, and from then on, the patient may find that they will only need to wear their retainers for 15-20 minutes every day.
Fastbraces® upright the root of the tooth from the beginning of treatment.
Fastbraces® Technology typically works with just one orthodontic wire from start to finish, whereas old braces usually require a series of wires and tightening procedures. Fastbraces® Technology uses a special square super-elastic nickel-titanium wire which is activated by the special design of the braces. This dynamic wire helps upright the whole tooth using the natural temperature of the mouth in just one stage.
