Want to avoid spending a small fortune on braces and having to deal with them for years? Fastbraces might just be the perfect technology for you, even acknowledged by 9News!
Developed in the United States almost 30 years ago, the practice is still quite new – especially considering the technology was only introduced to Australia over the past few years. But! This is not something to be scared about, rather, Fastbraces Technology should be embraced as a welcome alternative to traditional braces!
Traditional braces usually tilt the crown of the tooth in the first year and upright the root of the tooth in the second year. As a result, a minimum of two years is necessary for treatment. This process may also require tooth extraction or surgical intervention to ensure your teeth fit perfectly.
Instead of the traditional square shape braces, Fastbraces Technology uses a torquing method to stimulate movement of the roots of the teeth. That sounds scarier than it is though, simply put – triangular brackets are attached to the teeth with a flexible heat-activated wire system that is used to move the crown and root simultaneously.
Patients can often get results with less sensitivity in a time period of either weeks or months compared to a minimum of two years. As you can see, Fastbraces can definitely be your faster, safe and more affordable alternative! While the ‘classic’ option may take around six to eight months, a ‘turbo’ option is also available where treatments can be finished within 90-120 days.
Fortunately, the option is available for adults, teens and children. As children are constantly growing though, you can be guaranteed that Beachside Dental will find the perfect orthodontic treatment for them.
All in all the treatment sounds great, right? However, like all larger dental procedures, it is important to consult your dental provider first. The health of your teeth is very important so please book in a consultation with Beachside Dental to see if this method suits you!
