Filson Gentle Dentistry
Dr. Filson and Dr. Hei are pleased to offer Fastbraces to our Bayport patients. Fastbraces is an orthodontic treatment designed to move teeth more efficiently than traditional braces. It is a fixed brace orthodontic system, which means that it uses brackets and wires, rather than aligners.
We use Fastbraces to correct misaligned bites or teeth that are crooked, crowded, or protruding. Left untreated, these conditions can lead to jaw problems in the future. A “bad bite” also makes the teeth difficult to clean, which can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss.
What Makes Fastbraces Different?
Fastbraces uses revolutionary brackets that are triangular shaped rather than square shaped. These brackets are connected with a thermal-activated wire that reacts with your body heat to move your teeth quickly and with less irritation than traditional braces.
The most important thing that the triangular brackets do is move the tooth roots simultaneously with the crowns of your teeth. Square brackets used for traditional braces are designed to move the top part of the tooth – the crown – first, and then the tooth root afterward. This is a slower and less effective way of straightening teeth.
What Are the Advantages of Fastbraces?
Because Fastbraces moves the dental roots from the first day of treatment, many patients are able to perfect their smiles in half the time of traditional braces. Most patients are able to complete treatment in about a year, and we've had some patients who achieve their dream smiles in just three months!
If you’re on a timeline for a wedding, reunion, or graduation, just let us know, and we’ll work to make sure your smile is perfect for your special event.
Fastbraces uses a single orthodontic wire, which is activated by the natural heat that your mouth produces. As a result, the wires move your teeth gently and with less irritation than traditional braces. Patients around the world have discovered how painless getting a perfect smile can be with Fastbraces.
Results That Last
Fastbraces delivers results that last, so that you can enjoy your beautiful smile for the rest of your life. Because they move the tooth root from day one, your teeth are stable and less likely to shift after treatment.
In fact, after treatment, most patients need to wear their retainers for only 15 minutes a day in order to maintain their smiles. And Fastbraces comes with a lifetime satisfaction guarantee – ask our dentist for more information.
