Get straight teeth quickly with braces in Colchester

Getting braces is a safe option to straighten your crooked teeth and today there are a lot of different types of braces available. However, most of them require wearing the brace for at least a year before being able to see the first results. What if we told you that you can have now have your teeth straightened in a year or less, with many patients achieving a perfectly straight smile in six months?

At Hello Dental in Colchester, braces come in different types, materials and sizes and we are proud to provide Fastbraces, an innovative teeth straightening option that straightens teeth in just 3—12 months. Unlike many other short-term teeth straightening treatments, Fastbraces have proven to be effective over time without relapse.

How do Fastbraces work?

Traditional metal braces move teeth in two stages, usually over a period of about two years. In the first year, the crown of the tooth is gradually moved into its final position, whereas in the second year, treatment focuses on the roots of the teeth. Fastbraces work on a different teeth straightening principle, since they correct the position of the crown and the root simultaneously. This is because they use triangular brackets and a special wire. This combination is what enables them to move the crowns and roots towards the same position at the same time.

Are Fastbraces painful?

Because of their innovative design, Fastbraces have low frictional forces as well as a pain reduction mechanism, especially when fitting front and back teeth together. For all these reasons, they are more comfortable to wear than regular braces.

Am I a good candidate for Fastbraces?

Fastbraces will work for just about every patient who does not have straight teeth. This teeth straightening treatment is available for people of all ages – even children can wear them. Their unique design and flexibility add up to less discomfort. Just like regular braces, Fastbraces can fix most teeth straightening problems. On visiting Hello Dental for Fastbraces, our dentist will first let you know about the benefits of these braces in Colchester and what to expect from the treatment.
