Fast Braces vs. Traditional Braces
Though Fastbraces and traditional braces have the same treatment goal and are used as an orthodontic treatment to correct teeth alignment and spacing issues, there are some major differences between the two, which include:
- Fastbraces move both the tooth crown and tooth root at the same time.
- Fastbraces are typically a shorter treatment option, taking as little as three
- Fastbraces are less expensive than traditional braces and Invisalign.
The main difference between the structure of Fastbraces and traditional braces is the bracket. The triangular brackets of Fastbraces are referred to as “self-ligating brackets” and do not require additional wire or elastic bands to hold them together.
Benefits of Fast Braces
Fast braces uses a new patented bracket design, these triangular shaped brackets allow for the use of just one wire during the orthodontic treatment process. This allows the entire tooth to be moved instead of moving the crown first, then the root like with traditional braces. This can dramatically reduce treatment time, sensitivity and discomfort often associated with traditional metal braces.
Braces are typically seen as an orthodontic treatment for children and teenagers; they are, however, a perfect option for patients of any age that is interested in correcting spacing or alignment issues.
