It is an orthodontic system which does the job faster. Instead of going through the orthodontic treatment for 2 to 3 years, with this system get your teeth straight in less than a year. Conventional orthodontics moves the crown and root of the tooth in different stages. But in fast braces moving the crown and root will start right from the beginning and at the same time. This shortens the length of treatment and is possible by a special wire which is used in this system.
This system has been around in US and Europe for about 20 years but is new in Australia.
Like any other orthodontic treatment patients need to make sure they clean their teeth during treatment very precisely to prevent any decay or damage to teeth due to foot impaction under wire and around brackets.
when treatment is finished a retainer is a must. it can be a fixed or removable retainer or combination of both.
Only dentist how are registered with Fastbraces and have been through the Fastbraces course are eligible to provide this service.
Fastbraces brackets come in tow types of metal and ceramic. Usually the metal brackets are better for younger people and ceramic ones are used for adult to provide better esthetics.
