Traditional braces follow a two-step process. The first step involves realigning the crowns of the teeth, and this happens during the first few months. The second step is the realignment of the roots, which takes over a year in some cases. This two-step approach to orthodontics means that you are stuck wearing your braces for years with no visible signs of improvement.
However, this isn’t the case with Fastbraces. When your dentist or orthodontist uses Fastbraces for your teeth, this new technology starts realigning both the crowns and the roots simultaneously, from day one of treatment. This means your treatment time is cut in half, enabling you to have quicker and more dramatic results.
Fastbraces use a unique patented technology that is designed to restore, reshape and realign the alveolar bone (the ridge of your jaw that holds the tooth sockets) while treating your gums simultaneously. This offers a comprehensive orthodontic solution.
Depending on your individual case you will need a particular type of implant. The different types of implants include:
The Fastbraces treatment procedure is fast too. Your dentist at Smooth Dental and Orthodontics will study your teeth to understand the type and extent of treatment you require. He will then set custom-designed Fastbraces on your teeth.
These Fastbraces are made from extremely elastic nickel-titanium wire which has an elbow-shaped curvature in them (as opposed to the straight wires of traditional braces). These wires immediately conform to the shape of your teeth and fit snugly around them.
The single wire of the Fastbraces uses the heat produced in your mouth to mold itself onto your teeth, and this ensures that you don’t need to get them tightened. Once the Fastbraces have been fitted, you can resume your daily work without a problem. As with traditional braces, it’s best to just stay away from sticky or hard foods during the course of the treatment, as it will enable faster alignment.
You will need to visit your dentist periodically and have your Fastbraces checked. Once the dentist feels your teeth are aligned to the right degree, he will remove the Fastbraces from your teeth.
