Who wants to wear braces any longer than necessary?
At Hunslet Dental Surgery, we can treat our adult and teen patients with Fastbraces®, a revolutionary new system developed in the USA, offering teeth straightening that’s affordable, painless and, of course, fast! Typically, you can expect your Fastbraces® treatment to be completed within months rather than years.
Fastbraces® can be used to treat overcrowded, gappy and crooked and problems with the bite. The high-tech system is extremely lightweight, with patented triangular brackets that gently move both the crown and the root of the teeth simultaneously, resulting in a faster treatment time.
Fastbraces® are suitable for patients of all ages, though you will need to undergo an orthodontic consultation at the practice to confirm the system is right for you.
The clue is in the name: Fastbraces® work fast! In most cases, treatment can be completed within 10 months. Fastbraces® are also lighter and more comfortable than traditional metal braces, and their size allows for easier cleaning – which reduces the risk of gum disease and tooth decay during treatment. The fast treatment time also requires fewer visits to the dentist, and therefore less expense. With Fastbraces®, the need for tooth extractions is also greatly reduced or eliminated.
No, Fastbraces® is a fixed brace system, which we recommend for optimum results.
In most cases, after Fastbraces® treatment we will recommend fixed or removable retainers, which will hold your teeth in the correct position discreetly and permanently.
