Frequently Asked Questions
How does Fastbraces technology work?
While conventional braces are a two-phase treatment moving your crowns in one year and your roots in the next, Fastbraces moves target teeth all at once through unique mechanics. The key to tooth movement with Fastbraces is its innovative triangular bracket, which works with a nickel-titanium wire to simultaneously move both the roots and crowns of your teeth.
How long do I have to wear Fastbraces?
Most patients obtain their desired results within 3 months to 1 year. Fastbraces move the roots and crowns of your teeth at the same time, significantly reducing the duration of treatment time.
What types of orthodontic problems can Fastbraces correct?
Fastbraces can correct a full range of malocclusions and cosmetic imperfections, including underbites, overbites, spacing, and crowding… usually in a matter of months, instead of years!
What advantages does Fastbraces offer over conventional orthodontic treatment?
Conventional orthodontic treatment can take up to 3 years. With Fastbraces, treatment can take as little as 3 months. Less time in braces means more time smiling with confidence!
Tooth movement begins the day of treatment, with torquing and tipping forces acting immediately upon the roots of your teeth. Fastbraces offers a comparatively quick improvement at significantly lower costs than conventional orthodontic treatment. The flexibility of the wire Fastbraces uses also allows for less pressure and pain for the patient.
Does Fastbraces treatment hurt?
While there is some discomfort associated with orthodontic treatment, Fastbraces technology has been shown by some university research to be less painful and to generate less friction than traditional orthodontic treatment.
Does Fastbraces require patients to wear retainers?
Retainer wear is required, but not to the same extent or length of time after treatment as with conventional metal braces. Most patients only need to wear their retainer for about 15-20 minutes a day! You can pop it in during the morning when you are getting ready for your day, and take it out before you leave the house so you can smile with confidence.
Does Fastbraces offer a clear bracket option?
Yes! Fastbraces now offers a clear option to make your treatment more discreet. Clear ceramic brackets utilize the exact same self-litigating mechanics of the metal-colored brackets and perform with the same efficacy. The tooth-colored wire blends in better with your smile. If you are interested in more subtle orthodontic treatment, ask Dr. Hurcomb about Fastbraces with clear brackets.
Is Fastbraces right for me?
Fastbraces treatment is safe and effective for both teenagers and adults. If you are interested in spending less money on your orthodontic treatment, would rather wear braces for months instead of years, and prefer a no-fuss, no extraction system, Fastbraces is likely right for you.
