Introducing Fastbraces®    -   Straight Teeth; Fast, Safe, Easy & Affordable

Fastbraces®

With safety in mind, Fastbraces® Technology was developed to straighten teeth differently – allowing for a fast, safe and affordable solution.

Fastbraces® Technology allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the beginning of treatment by torquing them from the very first appointment. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases, just a few months.

It has been developed and tested over the past 20 years and is now becoming available in countries around the world . Fastbraces® Technology is fast, safe, easy and affordable treatment. With the patented triangular design of the braces, cutting edge techniques and a special heat-activated wire, this new technology is revolutionizing the field of orthodontics.


  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 Fastbraces® work on a different mechanical principle altogether. The patented system uses an innovative bracket and a specially- shaped 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.

The Fastbraces® Technology patented bracket design uses unique, triangular shaped braces that allow for the use of just one super-elastic nickel-titanium wire during the treatment process. This brace technology works on an entirely different mechanical principle altogether. Historically, old braces would move the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year.

The Fastbraces® Technology helps move the crown and root of the teeth at the same time, from the beginning of the treatment. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some instances, just 3 months.

  

Braces for Kids

Misaligned teeth or a dysfunctional bite can be a problem for some children. While this can complicate their oral hygiene, the additional pressures of being a kid can affect their day to day mood, attitude and self-confidence. Fortunately, with the Fastbraces® Technology, children can receive quick orthodontic treatment with minimum discomfort.

Braces for Adults

Hearing the words “you need braces” can send some people into a battle of insecurity.  You’re trying to be a grown-up, but you feel like a teenager again.  When they are wearing adult braces, some people are afraid to speak up during a business meeting or enjoy the adventure of a first date. As frightening as it may be, Fastbraces® Technology could be the fastest, most affordable and best alternative for you and can give you the advantage of a quick, permanent solution.


Fastbraces®ClearTM             Fast Results, Clear Options

The new and amazing Fastbraces®ClearTM ceramic bracket offers the same advantages of moving teeth as the Fastbraces® metal brackets with the added benefit of an aesthetic and totally cosmetic solution. Available in early 2013, Fastbraces®ClearTM will dazzle you with its performance.


The Research Agrees

Fastbraces® Technology has undergone university research and testing to ensure safety and optimal performance for patients. Research has confirmed the following key areas:

 

• Teeth Move Easily

University research showed the lowest friction with the Fastbraces® Technology patented braces system.

Fastbraces® brackets have significantly the lowest mean frictional forces by 87% when compared to all other orthodontic brackets in the study.

It can be confirmed that the non-conventional bracket designs investigated offer increased maneuverability along the guiding arch, a clear-cut reduction in sliding friction.

The force needed to overtake initial resistance to gliding (static friction) with standard brackets (0.018″) is more than ten times greater than when using low friction brackets

• Lower Sensitivity

Research has shown “lower sensitivity” and greater “pain reduction” with the bracket system of Fastbraces® Technology.

[This] indicates greater pain reduction with Fastbraces® Technology, with fitting front and back teeth together being at a statistically significant level.

• Teeth are Safe

Research has shown that the longer patients wear braces, the more root resorption (tooth root shortening) they have (American Journal of Orthodontics). University research in the same journal showed that Fastbraces® Technology presented “even less root resorption” than the traditional systems tested. This could be due to the fact that it moves the whole tooth in one stage, and therefore patients don’t stay in braces a long time.

Presented less root resorption than the others.
