Fastbraces® Technologies is a high-performance bracket system used to straighten teeth. The system uprights the roots of the teeth toward their final position from the beginning of the treatment using just one wire.

One of the benefits of Fastbraces® is that patients see a noticeable difference in their teeth within a matter of days and some could be out of braces in less than 100 days.

Here, one of our top dentists Dr Olurotimi Adesanya explains everything you need to know about the revolutionary orthodontic system, including who can benefit from the procedure and how much it costs.
 

How do I know I’m eligible for Fastbraces®?

To know if you are eligible you will need to be examined by the dentist to check your bone level, gum and teeth. If there is any disease of the gum, bone and teeth this will need to be treated before the start of the braces treatment.
 

How much do they cost?

The cost of treatment is £3,500 – 4,000* depending on the complexity of the individual case.
 

What are the mechanics of Fastbraces®? How do they move the teeth into position?

The patented bracket is placed on the tooth and a square wire is placed between the brackets and held into position with “O rings” (rubber-like material). The wire engages the elbow of the bracket and then transmits light force to the root of the tooth, along the whole length of the root.

The alveolar bone is one of three tissues on the jaw bone that supports, surrounds and helps to hold the tooth in place. The fitted brace moves the tooth, which results in alveolar bone remodelling and development. This allows the tooth to move towards its naturally-erupted position from the very start of the procedure. Consequently, the tooth is aligned into a better place in the arch.

How are they in terms of effectiveness compared to lingual or Invisalign braces?

Fastbraces® is a comprehensive orthodontic treatment whereas lingual braces can take longer to treat the malocclusion and cost more. The patient-compliance with Fastbraces® is better than with Invisalign so the treatment is completed faster.
 

Are multiple trips to the orthodontist required when you have Fastbraces®?

With Fastbraces® Technology patients are expected to visit the dentist every two to three weeks during the period of treatment.
 

What aftercare is required once Fastbraces® have been removed?

The patient will need a removable retainer to wear at night. They are advised to have a fixed retainer as well, which is wire behind the front teeth in the upper and lower arch.



If you are interested in having Fastbraces® fitted, do not hesitate to make the first consultation with Dr Adesanya.
