Improving the appearance and the structure of your smile is totally possible thanks to modern cosmetic dentistry. Our Dallas cosmetic dentists offer a number of effective treatment options for our patients. Today our team is answering some commonly asked questions about one treatment in particular, Fastbraces.
Q: How are Fastbraces different than traditional orthodontics?
A: The main thing that sets Fastbraces apart from regular braces is that Fastbraces utilizes triangular brackets to move the patient’s teeth. Triangular brackets (rather than square) apply more torque to the base of the patient’s teeth, so that the patient’s smile aligns quickly.
Another difference is that Fastbraces uses one wire throughout the treatment process. With traditional braces the patient has to have his or her wires switched out regularly in order to achieve results.
Q: What is it like to go through Fastbraces treatment?
A: In many respects, wearing Fastbraces is very similar to wearing traditional braces. However, due to the increased efficiency of Fastbraces, you won’t have to wear them as long! Our dental team will talk to you about the proper way to care for your teeth while undergoing treatment, but in general you will floss and brush your teeth as you normally do.
Q: What kinds of issues can Fastbraces correct?
A: The Fastbraces orthodontic system can straighten crooked and crowded teeth. Additionally, you can close gaps between your teeth, and widen your smile profile. Fastbraces can also be used to perfect your bite alignment, so as to minimize TMJ issues, and help you avoid uneven dental wear and tear.
