Tens of millions of adults and teens in this country would love to have straight teeth and a beautiful smile. Many of those people are uncomfortable with the idea of spending two or even three years wearing metal braces. Now, there’s good news! FastBraces® from Dr. Patricia Takacs at Beaumont Family Dentistry in Lexington, KY can give you straight teeth in less than one year.
FastBraces Can Do What Clear Aligners Can’t
Invisalign® and other clear dental aligners are a good option for people with relatively uncomplicated orthodontic conditions – gapped or twisted teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, and so on. However, the clear aligners often aren’t the best choice for many complex orthodontic cases. Sometimes, clear aligners just aren’t indicated for a particular patient.
Generally, those complex cases are treated with traditional metal braces. Treatment can take two to even three years in many cases, because traditional metal braces move the tooth during the first year and the root during the second year. That length of time is discouraging to many people.
FastBraces uses a revolutionary approach to moving teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, FastBraces moves both the tooth and the root at the same time. The result is a more comfortable teeth alignment process in a much shorter period of time – generally, in about one year or less. In fact, depending on your particular needs, treatment can be complete in as little as three months!
Not Only Faster, But Better
FastBraces employs triangular-shaped brackets that are affixed to the fronts of the teeth. These brackets are more comfortable than typical square brackets and cause less tooth sensitivity.
Moving the tooth and root together avoids other problems such as the tooth root shortening as can happen with traditional braces.
The square, high-tech wires that connect the FastBraces brackets allow teeth to be moved safely, quickly, and with less discomfort. Studies have shown that there’s less friction as teeth move into position which is part of the reason that FastBraces are more comfortable.
Unlike other forms of orthodontic treatment, FastBraces users don’t have to wear a retainer for hours a day once treatment is complete. Depending on your particular treatment plan, 15 to 20 minutes a day might be all that’s needed!
Dr. Patricia Takacs has extensive experience and training in providing orthodontic treatment. She’ll sit down with you and discuss your smile goals with you. Then, depending on the results of your examination, she’ll draw on the experience gained by completing thousands of orthodontic cases to determine the best treatment option for you.
Don’t be put off by the cost of FastBraces treatment. Because the length of treatment is shorter, you need fewer appointments which is a significant cost savings. And, Beaumont Family Dentistry accepts a wide variety of payment options and offers access to several outside financing options.
