The fastest way to straighten your teeth with braces in Colchester

If you want to straighten your teeth but cannot wait for months on end for regular metal braces, then you are in luck. Accelerated teeth straightening is a new concept in dentistry that can accomplish the same goals as traditional braces in much less time.

At Hello Dental, we value our patients’ time and for this reason, we offer Fastbraces, an innovative teeth-straightening system with braces in Colchester than helps you achieve straighter teeth in less time. Our experienced dentists will examine your teeth thoroughly and help you decide whether this treatment is right for you.

How do these braces work?

Fastbraces work similarly to regular braces with some notable differences. For instance, whereas regular braces require more than two wires, Fastbraces help move your teeth into their right position by using only one wire. The movement of the teeth is, therefore, faster, as not as many adjustments are required.

On the other hand, the brackets used with Fastbraces work on a different mechanical principle altogether. Instead of being rectangular, the brackets of Fastbraces are triangular and are held together by a square wire that helps to correct the position of the root of the tooth, from the beginning of the treatment. This combination is important for moving the teeth into their correct positions in 3-12 months.

How do I know if I’m a good candidate?

Fastbraces are suitable for both children and adults. They can treat a vast majority of teeth straightening problems as well as issues that cannot be normally treated with other types of accelerated teeth straightening treatment. All you need to do is book a consultation appointment with one of our dentists. They will take photos and arrange x-rays of your teeth. We will then be able to advise you if accelerated braces in Colchester are the right option for you.

Are these braces painful?

Research and clinical experiences have shown that Fastbraces are generally more comfortable than regular braces. This is because their design employs lower frictional forces and reduces wire friction. These technological patents make for a more comfortable and less painful teeth straightening experience.
