The days when you had to wait for years to straighten your teeth are long gone. While traditional braces have been in use since the 1800s, there is a new kid on the block. Fastbraces is a new orthodontic technology to straighten your teeth faster, comfortably, and cost-effectively. The Mark H Wright DDS team in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is happy to offer Fastbraces as an alternative for patients who want to straighten their teeth.
Traditional braces and Fastbraces use the same concept to align teeth — putting constant pressure on the teeth to move them to the desired position. Traditional braces achieve this by using a set of brackets bonded on teeth connected to a network of wires with rubber bands on the sides.
Straightening teeth with conventional braces takes two stages. In the first phase, the tooth’s visible part (crown) moves, followed by repositioning the tooth roots. Each step takes about one year, and that’s why patients must endure years of wearing traditional braces.
On the other hand, Fastbraces move your entire tooth from the crown down to the roots in one process! Fastbraces can do this because they are fitted with triangular brackets attached to a square-like wire that moves the entire tooth at a go. As a result, dentists and orthodontists can straighten your smile without waiting for years. Some patients can start seeing results in as little as three months!
The significant reduction of the treatment period is the obvious benefit of Fastbraces, but this treatment is a lot cooler than that. The other benefits of Fastbraces include:
