Dental braces or orthodontics with FASTBRACES® Technology addresses the treatment of malocclusions such as overbite or underbite with a non-extraction(no teeth pulling) treatment plan designed by the dentist provider. FASTBRACES® Technology braces come in metal and clear and work by uprighting or straightening the roots of the teeth from the beginning of treatment towards their tooth straight position.
What is Fastbraces?
Fastbraces® were developed to straighten teeth differently. Fastbraces® is the revolutionary system of fast, safe, easy and affordable braces that is changing the field of orthodontics. It is a complete, non-extraction system for most cases, which provides patients with outstanding results.
How does it work?
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 triangular bracket and a specially- shaped square 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.
How long is Treatment Time?
Fastbraces® Technology gently allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final position from the onset of treatment, achieving root parallelism at the beginning stages, thus completing treatment from 3 months to about a year. Some patients see results in just weeks!
Are Fastbraces® less Painful?
University research has shown that Fastbraces® Technology has low mean frictional forces, a clear-cut reduction in sliding friction and pain reduction with fitting front and back teeth together.
Do I have to wear a Retainer?
With the complete alignment of the roots of the teeth, retention is needed every day for only 15-20 minutes (“Tooth Shampoo”.) Some people like wearing the retainers at night (“Teeth pajamas”). No more retainers for hours during the day for months after treatment. This is yet another reason why Fastbraces® Technology is changing the way orthodontics is done altogether.

ASK US TODAY HOW WE CAN STRAIGHTEN YOUR TEETH IN MONTHS INSTEAD OF YEARS! The biggest question for a child or adult who may need braces would probably be “how quickly can I get them off?” There are no miracle shortcuts in orthodontics, but Fastbraces® Technology is different by design. Fastbraces® makes it possible to measure treatment time in months instead of years. Some patients see results in just a few weeks! The old style braces are generally square in shape and usually move the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year, which requires two years of treatment time. The patented triangular bracket in the Fastbraces® Technology gently allows for movement of the crown and the root of the teeth at the same time without any extra risk for the patient and with minimal discomfort. It’s fast, safe, easy and affordable!
