Fast Braces are a relatively new and innovative orthodontic treatment which begins by moving the root portion of the wonky or misaligned teeth, making the process dramatically quicker as the entire tooth is moving throughout the treatment.
Fast Braces are a relatively new and innovative orthodontic treatment that still deliver the results of traditional braces despite their modern take on the process. Fast Braces straighten out teeth and fix other orthodontic problems much quicker than traditional fixed braces can. They are an effective treatment for several dental issues including:
• Misaligned or wonky teeth
• Crowded teeth
• Gaps between the teeth
• Issues with the bite
Traditional braces are fixed to the teeth and move the crown section of the tooth first and then the root section, meaning that different portions of the tooth do not move at the same time. In contrast, Fast Braces begin moving the root portion of the wonky or misaligned teeth from the beginning, making the process dramatically quicker as the entire tooth is moving throughout the treatment time. The shape of Fast Braces, which are triangular instead of the usual square, provides more flexibility while the use of just one wire ensures that it is fine, light and comfortable to wear.
The Fast Braces treatment will generally be completed within 10 months, which is the main benefit of this option and the reason why many choose it over other brace solutions. Fast Braces are also lighter and finer than traditional fixed braces and have been designed with comfort in mind as well as delivering quick treatment.
Typically, Fast Braces work in around half the time as traditional fixed braces. In some cases, this means treatment can be completed within 3 months while more complex cases could take between 10 and 12 months. Despite working quicker than other types of braces, Fast Braces still result in straightened teeth and smile, giving a confidence boost if you’re self conscious about your mouth.
A simple Fast Brace is likely to cost £2,500 and you should expect the treatment to take between six and eight months.
