Braces are great at what they do. They move teeth into perfect alignment so people can have healthy, attractive, and straight smiles.
The problem, to some people, is that traditional braces can take too long to get the job done. If you have been considering orthodontic care, you may want to visit us to learn about your short-term orthodontic options. Today we’ll be discussing one of them in particular.
Fastbraces® certainly live up to their name. They can transform your smile in as little as 120 days, a fraction of the time of traditional brackets and wires.
We’ll explain how this is possible below. For now, just know that you can call 239-734-7737 to schedule a consultation with George A. Hoop, DDS, at either of our locations in Fort Myers or Naples, FL.
Change The Angles
Compared to traditional braces, Fastbraces more than live up to their name.
Brackets and wires have been used by dental professionals for decades to move teeth. It’s pretty common for people to wear braces from 18 months to three years.
That also means a lot of dental visits. It means you should avoid many foods as well. If you could be the same thing done in less time, you would probably be happy about that. Fastbraces uses a combination of unique triangular brackets and high-tech archwires to do just that in as little as four months.
Traditional braces move teeth in stages. The rectangular brackets and wires work together to realign the crowns of the teeth in the first stage. When the teeth are positioned correctly, then adjustments are made to get the roots aligned as well.
Fastbraces’ triangular brackets change the way in which force is applied to teeth. This allows you to realign your crowns and roots at the same time. That innovative technology can help you get the smile of your dreams in less time.
You also should know that Dr. Hoop was one of the first doctors authorized to provide Fastbraces in Fort Myers and Naples, FL.
Consider Your Options
Fastbraces aren’t your only option at our office. We also offer Six Month Smiles® and Invisalign®. Both are effective in their own ways, even if they may not be as fast.
Six Months Smiles takes about six months to change your smile. The actual treatment time can vary by a few months depending on the type and severity of your particular issues. This is primarily a cosmetic treatment. It uses clear brackets and wires to focus on moving just the teeth in the front of your mouth. This can lead to tremendous changes in your smile and your confidence, however.
Invisalign takes more time, but it offers a different benefit for you. Instead of brackets and wires, you receive a series of transparent aligners. This makes them more discreet than braces, which may help you feel more comfortable in professional and social situations.
