We have compiled a few general questions relating to Orthodontics Fastbraces, if you have a question of your own please don’t hesitate to contact our team.

What is Fastbraces®?

Fastbraces® were developed to straighten teeth differently. Fastbraces® is the revolutionary system of fast, safe, easy and affordable braces that is changing the field of orthodontics. It is a complete, non-extraction system for most cases, which provides patients with outstanding results.

How does it work?

The brackets used with Fastbraces® work on a different mechanical principle to traditional braces. This revolutionary system uses an innovative triangular bracket and a specially- shaped square wire to correct the position of the tooth, from the beginning of treatment. This combination is key in realigning the root and crown simultaneously, therefore shortening treatment time significantly.

How long is Treatment Time?

Fastbraces® Technology gently allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final position from the onset of treatment, achieving root parallelism at the beginning stages, thus completing treatment from 3 months to about a year. Some patients see results in just weeks

How Can You Decide if You’re a Good Candidate for Fastbraces®?

Fastbraces are a great option for a lot of patients seeking to straighten their teeth. Our Dentists will spend their time to explain to you your options and your suitability.
