A Faster Way To Straighten Teeth
In most cases, conventional braces take a long time for results to appear. According to the Harvard Medical School Health Publication, Healthbeat, metal braces take two years on average to complete. However, in Dr. VanderMolen’s experience, they can easily take as long as three years for more complex cases. That’s why he’s offering a solution to crooked teeth, poor bites and misalignment that provides advanced orthodontic results in considerably less time.
Of course, don’t just take his word for it. His own daughters were able to take advantage of this innovative technology when he found out that in order to complete traditional treatment, they would need to have teeth removed. As a result, Dr. VanderMolen chose FastBraces© to shift teeth more quickly, effectively and without harming their smile. Today, you can reap the benefits yourself when you visit his office!
How Do FastBraces© Work?
When undergoing treatment with traditional braces, the round archwire is meant to exclusively focus on the movement of the crown. This process takes about one year and doesn’t even begin to address the tooth root until then. Once complete, square and rectangular wires begin shifting teeth to their final position during the second year of treatment. This is why traditional orthodontics tend to take far more time.
In comparison, FastBraces© are designed to upright the roots to their final position with a square torqueing wire from the beginning of treatment. These brackets utilize an elbow component to shift the crown and root simultaneously, effectively reducing the time needed for treatment.
