Teeth are critical structures of the body. Among their chief benefits, they allow us to eat and speak clearly. They also increase our self-confidence by supporting our facial anatomy, which prevents sagging or looking “hollow.” The proper alignment of our teeth is also vital. Crooked teeth can reduce bite strength and cause damage to upper and lower teeth that contact badly. The good news is modern dentistry can easily correct your teeth misalignment; the better news is it can be done faster than ever before. Let’s take a closer look at Fastbraces, an extremely quick and very successful teeth straightening therapy that can remake your smile from start to finish in as little as four to nine months.
What are Fastbraces?
You probably have some general knowledge about traditional braces and how they work. But, you might not know how technology has improved this process in the form of Fastbraces. Read this article to learn more:
Fastbraces are a new, faster way to straighten your teeth. They are similar to traditional braces, in that they move your teeth into a better position. But they straighten your teeth in significantly less time than traditional braces.
Like traditional braces, brackets are attached to the outer-facing sides of every tooth in your mouth. A strong dental adhesive is used to keep these secure and in place during your treatment.
But what’s unique about Fastbraces? It’s the shape of these brackets. They are triangular, rather than square, and reach down to the root of your teeth. This gives your orthodontist more control over the movement of your teeth.
These triangular brackets are then connected by a wire, that goes through every bracket that is attached to every tooth. Read more at Finger Lakes Family Dental
With Fastbraces, your dentist gains more control over the alignment process, allowing for a quicker, more reliable outcome. There’s more to learn about this advanced therapy, so let’s keep going.
How Do They Work?
At this point you’re wondering: How are Fastbraces able to speed up the alignment process so much? The answer is detailed in the following post, so keep reading:
Instead of using the square brackets of traditional braces, Fastbraces uses triangular brackets to increase the gap between each brace. The triangular form makes the wire more flexible and makes it possible to correct the roots’ position concurrently. In contrast to traditional braces, which take the extra time between correcting the crowns and roots, Fastbraces engage the entire tooth structure at the beginning of treatment.
As with traditional braces, Fastbraces can be used to correct crowding, crookedness, gaps, or misalignment of the teeth. They are attached to the teeth’s front sides and linked with a wire. The special design that straightens the crowns and roots from the start ensures that patients can get straighter teeth within months, not years. Most patients can complete the treatment in about nine months, compared to the two or more years required for traditional braces. Read more at Thanasas DDS
To reiterate the key takeaway from above: The ability of Fastbraces to move the crowns and roots of the teeth simultaneously is a gamechanger that cuts treatment times by as much as 75 percent.
Who Needs Fastbraces?
To know for certain if Fastbraces are the solution to your needs, schedule a consultation with your dentist. The likelihood of you being a suitable candidate is high — particularly if you’re problem is one of the smile-related issues found in the following post:
Every person has a different bite problem, but there are seven broad types. Those are:
- Crossbite – where the upper teeth fit inside the lower teeth
- Underbite – where the power jaw sits in front of the upper jaw
- Open bite – where the back teeth are together an the upper and lower don’t overlap, or when the front teeth come together but the back teeth don’t
- Deep bite – when the upper front teeth cover the bottom teeth too much
- Crowding – where the teeth don’t have sufficient space to grow in, this can happen when there’s inadequate space in the jaw
- Spacing – this happens where there is too much space between teeth due to oversized jaws or missing teeth
- Protrusion – which is when the front teeth stick out (‘buck’ teeth) Read more at Broomfield Dentists
