The biggest question for a child who may need braces would probably be "how quickly can I get them off?"
While there are no miracle shortcuts in orthodontics, Fastbraces® Technology is different by design which allows for typically treatment time of one year instead of two. Some patients even see results in as little as 3 months!
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 in the second year, thus requiring two years of treatment time. The patented triangular bracket in the Fastbraces® Technology gently allows for movement of the crown and the root of the teeth at the same time with no extra risk for the patient.
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.
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 20 years.
Tested by leading Universities in the U.S., Europe and South America.
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 15-20 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 a few minutes every day.
