With safety in mind, FastBraces™ Technology was developed to straighten teeth differently – allowing for a fast, safe and affordable solution. FastBraces™ Technology allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the beginning of treatment by torquing them from the very first appointment. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases, just a few months. It has been developed and tested over the past 25 years and is now becoming available in countries around the world. FastBraces™ Technology is fast, safe, easy and affordable treatment. With the patented triangular design of the braces, cutting edge techniques and a special heat-activated wire, this new technology is revolutionizing the field of orthodontics.

Teeth are crooked because they didn’t erupt properly, they came in the mouth tilted, sideways and not upright in the position they need in order to be straight. This means that the root of a crooked tooth is not straight, or upright, as it should be had the tooth come in straight. FastBraces™ Technology targets the roots of the tooth from the beginning of treatment. If the root is upright, then the tooth becomes straight.
To do this properly, a special square super-elastic nickel-titanium wire is used in order to torque and upright the root. Old braces are typically square in shape and don’t provide for enough room between them (figure 1). If the square braces are replaced with triangular ones, the distance between the braces doubles (figure 2). Therefore, by doubling the distance, the flexibility of the square wire increases eight times (23 = 8). Thus, with FastBraces™ Technology, one square wire can be engaged comfortably and easily between the braces in order to upright the root from the beginning of treatment. Therefore, treatment time can be completed in about a year or as little as 3 months in some cases. (figure 3)
Hearing the words “you need braces” can send some people into a battle of insecurity. When wearing adult braces, some people are afraid to speak up during a business meeting or enjoy the adventure of a first date. As frightening as it may be, FastBraces™ Technology could be the fastest, most affordable and best alternative, providing the advantage of a quick, permanent solution.
The biggest question for a teen 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 typically treatment time of one year instead of two. Some patients even see results in as little as 3 months! The old braces are usually square in shape and typically tilt the crown of the tooth in the first year, and upright the root of the tooth in the second year, thus requiring two years of treatment time. The patented triangular bracket in the FastBraces™ Technology gently allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions at the same time with no extra risk for the patient.
Misaligned teeth or a dysfunctional bite can be a problem for some children. While this can complicate their oral hygiene, the additional pressures of being a kid can affect their day to day mood, attitude and self-confidence. Fortunately, with the FastBraces™ Technology, children can receive quick orthodontic treatment with minimum discomfort.
