It’s now official! We are proudly Senior Master Providers of Fastbraces® at our Dental practice, in St Peters and Norwood.
a proud FASTBRACES® provider:
braces technology that is fast,
safe and affordable.
Unlike traditional braces that can take up to two years to complete, the Fastbraces® treatment can be completed in less than half that time.
Fastbraces® are an innovative orthodontic treatment, specifically designed to move teeth fast and efficiently with gentle force. They are faster than traditional braces because of the patented, unique technology purposely devised to provide faster results. This is achieved with a triangular design of the brackets, cutting edge techniques and a special heat-activated wire
Traditional braces move your teeth in two stages—the first stage involves aligning the crowns of your teeth, and the second stage is when the alignment of the tooth roots is addressed.
This is where Fastbraces® differ — the patented technology uses a bracket and a specially shaped wire to correct the position of both the crown and the root from the beginning of treatment. This means that we can align the crown and root at the same time.
Unlike traditional braces that can take up to two years to complete, Fastbraces® treatment can be completed in just 3 months. More complex cases may require 12 months; however this is still only half the amount of time of traditional braces. Another advantage of Fastbraces® is there is less associated discomfort than with traditional braces.
How Fastbraces® work
At Elite Dental Adelaide, we can correct many types of misaligned and improperly placed teeth with the Fastbraces® treatment. It is an efficient and effective solution for a number of concerns, including spaced or crowded teeth, and incorrect bites.
When Fastbraces® triangular braces are applied instead of square braces, the distance between the braces is almost doubled.
This extra space increases the flexibility of the specially designed wire, allowing the root to be straightened upright in a year to as little as three months.
They have low friction, low sensitivity and the gentle force they exert is effective without being uncomfortable compared to traditional braces.
The Fastbraces® technology was developed with safety in mind allowing the system to be fast and affordable without compromising patient care. The triangular-shaped brackets, along with a super-elastic wire, create the ideal combination of gentle forces to move the teeth in a more natural way.
