About Fast Braces®
Traditional braces move teeth into position in two stages, usually over a period of about two years. In the first year the crown of the tooth is moved into alignment. In the second year, treatment addresses the position of the root of the tooth.
However, the brackets used with Fast Braces® work on a different mechanical principal altogether. The patented system uses an innovative triangular bracket and a specially — shaped square wire to correct the position of the root of the tooth, from the beginning of treatment. This combination is key in realigning the root and crown simultaneously.
How Long is Treatment Time?
Fast Braces® Technology allows for the gentle movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the onset of treatment, achieving root parellielism at the beginning stages, thus completing treatment from 3 months to about a year. Some patients see results in just weeks!
Since Fast Braces® Technology was first introduced in 1992; there have been great success stories around the world. Both children and adults have seen the benefits of this innovative system. The confidence that is gained from having a healthy, beautiful smile is priceless. Fast Braces® Technology has been the key to a happier life — both personally and professionally, for thousands of patients around the world. Visit www.fastbraces.com for more amazing stories.
