To understand how teeth are straightened with Fastbraces®, you must first understand why teeth are crooked. Teeth are crooked because they come in the mouth tilted, sideways and not upright in the position they need to be straight. This means that the root of a crooked tooth is not straight (upright) as it should be if the tooth erupts crooked.
Historically, braces are usually square in shape and typically the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year, thus requiring two years of treatment. Fastbraces® works on a different mechanical principle altogether.
The Fastbraces® patented design uses a unique, triangular shaped braces that typically allows for just one orthodontic wire during the treatment. These triangular are specifically designed to move the crown and root of the teeth at the same time, from the beginning of the treatment. If the root is upright, then the tooth becomes straight.
Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some instances, just a few months.
