Fast, Comprehensive Treatment in Months... Not Years! The biggest question for a child or adult who may need braces would probably be "how quickly can I get them off?"
While there are no miracle shortcuts in orthodontics, Fastbraces® Technology is different by design, which allows for treatment time to be measured in months, not years.
The old braces are usually square in shape and typically move the crown of the tooth in the first year and the root of the tooth towards its final position in the second year, thus requiring about two years of treatment. Fastbraces® Technology gently allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final position from the onset of treatment, thus completing treatment from 3 months to about a year.
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. Thousands of patients have been treated over the past 20 years.
Minimal Retainer Wear
After treatment, the patient will start out by wearing the retainers every night during a normal 8-hour sleep period ("Teeth Pajamas") or just in the shower for 15-20 minutes every day (Tooth Shampoo"), as per the doctor's instructions.
Within a year, and from then on, the patient may find that they will only need to wear their retainers for a few minutes every day.
