Fastbraces are a modern, advanced method for correcting teeth alignment issues.
Fastbraces come in metal braces configurations as well as in clear ceramic ones. However, the thing that truly sets Fastbraces apart from other forms of orthodontic treatment is their speed – most treatments can be completed in about 120 days!
Fastbraces can treat a variety of teeth alignment problems, including:
- Crowding – crowding is when there isn’t enough space in the mouth for all of the teeth. When this happens, they may end up crooked, overlapping, or both. The resulting surfaces are typically difficult to clean, and result in accumulation of plaque, tooth decay, and gum disease.
- Spacing – spacing problems can occur when there is a mismatch between jaw size and teeth size. It can also occur after an extraction opens up a new gap in the mouth. These gaps often lead to gum issues.
- Open Bite – an open bite is when one or more teeth fail to contact their counterparts when the jaw is closed. This is typically caused by misaligned teeth or atypical jaw construction. An open bite can cause issues with speaking and chewing, and can even cause or contribute to temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD.
- Over Bite and Underbite – an over bite, technically called overjet, is when the upper teeth protrude further than the lower teeth. Underbite is just the opposite – when the lower teeth protrude further than the upper teeth. Both are most commonly the result of genetics, and they both can cause gum problems and contribute to TMD.
- Cross bite – like over bite and underbite, cross bite involves the misalignment of the upper and lower teeth. In a cross bite, as you can probably guess, there is a side to side misalignment of the two sets of teeth. Cross bite causes the teeth to grind away at each other, breaking down the enamel and leading to decay and bone loss.
