Back in the day, a person with crooked or crowded teeth would have to wear metal braces to have straight teeth. No more.
Fastbraces® are changing the orthodontic world, straightening teeth in months, not years. You can have a gorgeous smile in a fraction of the time that traditional metal braces require.
Dr. Thomas Ludlow of Expressions In Dentistry in Folsom, CA, is a Fastbraces expert. However, Fastbraces aren’t for everyone. Read on to learn if Fastbraces are right for you.
What are Fastbraces?
Fastbraces straighten your teeth way faster than traditional metal braces. You can achieve the smile you want in only 100 days, rather than two or three years. Also, many patients find Fastbraces to be less painful than traditional braces.
Traditional metal braces move teeth in a two-step process. In the first year, braces align a patient’s teeth via the crowns. In the next year or two, traditional braces move the roots.
Fastbraces use a triangular bracket that aligns the crown and root at the same time. In just a few months, this technology allows Dr. Ludlow to help your mouth grow an alveolar bone, the part of your jaw that supports roots that anchor your teeth.
Are you right for Fastbraces?
Crooked teeth can hurt your dental health and self-esteem. Most people who want braces seek straight teeth and a more beautiful smile.
Kids can wear traditional braces for years without experiencing too much disruption to their daily life. Lots of kids have a mouthful of metal, so traditional braces are not unusual.
However, few adults wear braces. And even adults who need or want to have their teeth straightened, often shy away from braces because they fear that a mouthful of metal will hurt their personal or professional lives.
Here’s the truth. If your dental problems will respond to traditional braces, they should yield easily to Fastbraces. The exception is a patient with extremely crowded teeth or one who suffers from temporomandibular joint disorder.
You’ll start down the road to straight teeth via Fastbraces with a consultation with Dr. Ludow, who will determine if you’re a good candidate for this cutting-edge technology. During your initial meeting, feel free to ask Dr. Ludlow any questions you have about Fastbraces and what you can expect during treatment.
