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 . 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 brackets have an elevated slot and a unique elbow design. The shape of the bracket is critical because it literally changes the force-flexibility equation. The square shape of conventional brackets defines the distance between the brackets and that distance determines the flexibility of the wire. However, the triangular shape of the Fastbraces® patented bracket, with its elevated slot, typically increases the distance between the individual brackets, which increases the flexibility of the wire. Additionally, the “elbows” of the bracket help deliver torquing and tipping forces to the root from the beginning of treatment. These fundamental differences allow treatment to be completed in about a year, or as little as 3 months in select cases. For the consumer looking for an aesthetic cosmetic solution, Fastbraces®Clear™ ceramic brackets are also available and offer the same technology advantages of moving teeth as the Fastbraces® metal brackets.
