The wonder of Fastbraces

If you are looking for braces in Colchester, look no further than Hello Dental. We are happy to offer our patients Fastbraces, for an innovative way to straighten your smile. Fastbraces were developed to straighten teeth differently. Fastbraces are the revolutionary system of fast, safe, easy and affordable braces that is changing the field of braces in Colchester. They are a complete, non-extraction system, which provides our patients with outstanding results.

How long do they take?

Fastbraces technology typically works with just one wire from start to finish, whereas old braces usually require a series of wires and tightening procedures. Fastbraces use a special square super-elastic nickel-titanium wire that is activated by the special design of the braces. This wire helps realign the whole tooth using the natural temperature of the mouth in just one stage. Now your braces in Colchester treatment time can be measured in months instead of years.

Are they safe?

Twenty years of history, thousands of consecutively treated patients and university research have shown that Fastbraces are not only safe, but also offer many additional benefits. Our patients normally experience less discomfort and there are no more risks with Fastbraces than those associated with traditional fixed metal braces.

Advancements in technology are rapidly changing the way braces straighten teeth, the length of time it takes, the cost and the comfort level. Research has shown lower sensitivity and reduced pain with the bracket system of Fastbraces. Additionally, the fact that the braces are on for less time means that there is less chance of tooth decay from ineffective oral hygiene.

Different by design

The Fastbraces brackets have a unique bracket design. The shape of the bracket is critical because it literally changes the forces put on the teeth. The triangular shape of our Fastbraces bracket increases the distance between the individual brackets, which increases the flexibility of the wire. Additionally, these brackets help deliver forces to the root of the tooth from the very beginning of treatment. These fundamental differences allow treatment to be completed in as little as just three months.
