What’s So Great About Fastbraces?

Dr. Patricia Takacs 1 | Beaumont Family Dentistry

Now that Spring is almost here, it’s time to talk about renewal. If you have been putting up with annoying and/or unhealthy orthodontic issues, our Lexington, KY dentist’s office can help you turn things around in a hurry with a great program known as Fastbraces.

If you have been around people who had to wear braces, you surely understand the benefits (their teeth are now straight), and you likely understand the hassles that they had to work through along the way.

It should come as no surprise that braces can be downright uncomfortable. You will feel them from the moment you get them, and you feel them each time they are adjusted during the 2-3 years they are in your mouth. Plus, you have to give up certain foods that are too hard, too crunchy, or too chewy during the time you have your braces. It wouldn’t be such a big deal, if only the job could be completed faster.

That’s why we love Fastbraces! When compared with traditional braces, they really are quick.

The Secret Shape!

Here’s their secret: Fastbraces have special triangular-shaped brackets, which affects the way the wire that connects them applies the necessary pressure to your teeth.

You may not know this but traditional braces work more slowly, in part, because they move your teeth in stages: first the crowns, then the roots. That’s not the case with Fastbraces. They are actually able to move your crowns and roots simultaneously, which has a major impact on how quickly you can wrap up your treatment.

So, how fast are Fastbraces? It depends on the situation at hand. It is possible that you could be finished in as little as 20 weeks, although six months to a year is more common.

Regardless, Fastbraces treatment is generally done in less than half the time you would need to wear old-school braces.
