Fastbraces® Teen . A safe, fast and effective way of straightening teeth...

The guide:

Fastbraces® works for teenagers just as well as it works for adults! Fastbraces® is superior to conventional metal braces because of the technology that it uses.

What is different about this technology compared to normal braces?

Traditional braces works in two stages over a period of about two years. The first stage is to move the crown of your tooth (the part you can see) and then the second stage is to move the root into the right place. Once the crown and root are in the right place you can have your braces taken off.

Fastbraces® moves the root and the crown of your teeth simultaneously from the very first appointment. It uses a patented triangular bracket and a heat activated wire to move the tooth. The special brackets and wire work faster because of the technology that Fastbraces® uses. This is also why the treatment is faster, normally the treatment is completed within 8 months, which is less than half the time of a normal brace.

Also because the braces are not on for as long the chances of getting tooth decay are reduced. 

Will I have to have teeth taken out?

Fastbraces® treats the majority of cases without extraction of any teeth. Unfortunately a lot of orthodontists ask for teeth to be taken out before putting braces on. This is old-fashioned and out of date! You do not need teeth to be taken out in the majority of cases and only very rarely is this required. In fact Fastbraces® has treated thousands of patients who had been told they need teeth extracted by an orthodontist.

Which one is better?

Fastbraces® is superior to conventional braces in 80% of cases. There are some cases that may require surgery and these cases cannot be treated using Fastbraces®.

Does it hurt more because it is faster?

NO! Quite the opposite in fact. Fastbraces® technology actually puts less pressure on the teeth and therefore patients experience less discomfort. Also due to the lower pressure the chances of any damage to the root of your tooth is reduced.

Is It More Expensive?

Fastbraces® is in fact cheaper! Why is it cheaper? Because it is faster you need less appointments and therefore the cost can be reduced. Fastbraces® costs around £2000 whereas normal braces usually costs around £3000-4000.

Do the braces have to be metal?

Fastbraces® also offers white (tooth-coloured) brackets. To find out if you are suitable then please book a free consultation.
