Fastbraces ® For Adults and Children

Fastbraces® were first introduced about 20 years ago.  Since Fastbraces® were introduced, they’ve helped numerous people achieve straighter smiles!  Fastbraces® are being used all around the world!

Fastbraces® work differently than traditional braces. The technology utilized in Fastbraces® is simply amazing!  Fastbraces® decrease the amount of time a patient would have to wear braces by moving both the root and crown of your teeth at the same time.  A Fastbraces® patient should experience less discomfort with Fastbraces® than they would with traditional braces.  University research shows Fastbraces® cause less sensitivity.

Some Fastbraces® patients finish their treatment as quickly as three months, and can be worn by adults, teenagers and children.

Frequently Asked Questions

Because Fastbraces ® work differently than traditional braces, most people have questions about Fastbraces®.  Here are answers to some of the most common questions.

Most other orthodontic braces start with a round wire which cannot torque the root but rather simply begins the alignment of the crowns of the teeth until the doctor can move up in wire size to a square or rectangular wire that can torque the root. Fastbraces® can do that from the beginning. In short, other braces are usually square in shape and typically move the crowns during the first year and the roots during the second year, thus requiring around two years of braces treatment. The patented triangular design of the braces used at Fastbraces® gently allows for movement of the crown and root of the teeth at the same time, requiring typically one year of treatment instead of two.

“I love feeling confident when I smile! Dr. Smith recommended I try Fastbraces because they would straighten my teeth in less than a year and they cost less than traditional braces. I only had my Fastbraces for 10 months! My recommendation is to get them!”
