Fastbraces® in Kew

Imagine being able to straighten your teeth in months versus years? While the traditional braces that were commonly used in the past required lengthy treatment times the Fastbraces system can align your teeth beautifully, safely and gently, in mere months! With Fastbraces®, teenagers and adults with the following types of improperly erupted teeth can benefit: open bite, overbite, crossbite, spacing, severe crowding and high canines.

How Does It Work?

Conventional braces are typically square-shaped and usually shift the crown of the teeth during the first year of treatment. In the second year, the root of the tooth moves. That’s why treatment time with traditional metal braces usually takes two or more years. With Fastbraces, however, patented triangular brackets are used; as a result, the crown and the root of each tooth can move simultaneously. Perhaps best of all, there is little discomfort involved with Fastbraces.

Benefits of Fastbraces

In addition to being fast, as the name indicates, there are many other benefits associated with this braces system:

  • Retains natural bite
  • Is affordable
  • Has been used for more than 20 years
  • Requires only one super-elastic wire
  • Straightens discreetly using ceramic brackets

What Is the Process Like?

Dr Ramzy, who is licenced to provide Fastbraces, will take photos and X-rays of your teeth to establish the plan that’s most appropriate for you. Next, the braces will be custom-created for your particular smile needs. We ask that you reserve approximately 45 minutes for this appointment.

Helping You Smile for Life

As a Senior Master Provider of Fastbraces, Dr Medhat has extensive experience in utilizing this revolutionary technology to help patients achieve their desired smile. During your consultation, he will thoroughly evaluate your orthodontic needs and determine if Fastbraces is right for you.

Prevention is a key focus of our practice, and we believe that education is an essential part of this. We strongly advise parents to instil good oral hygiene habits in their children from a young age, and to be mindful of the impact that a high sugar diet can have on their children’s dental health.

It’s important to note that high sugar intake can cause dental decay, which can lead to tooth loss and other dental issues in children. By reducing the amount of sugary snacks and drinks that their children consume, parents can help to prevent these issues from occurring. We also recommend that parents bring their children to the dentist for regular check-ups from a young age. This can help to detect any potential dental problems early on, and can prevent these problems from becoming more serious issues down the track.

At our practice, we work closely with parents to educate them on the importance of good oral hygiene habits for their children, and to help them understand the impact that their dietary choices can have on their children’s dental health. We believe that by working together, we can help to ensure that our patients maintain healthy, beautiful smiles for years to come.

FAQs

What is Fastbraces?

Fastbraces is a groundbreaking orthodontics approach that can straighten your smile in significantly less time than conventional braces. Using its patented technology, Fastbraces delivers beautiful results in approximately 100 days.

How does it work?

Fastbraces utilises a triangular bracket that’s attached to a traditional metal wire. This unique bracket shifts the crowns and roots of the teeth at the same time for faster, more predictable treatment. In contrast, conventional braces use a square bracket, necessitating two phases of treatment that take longer.

How long does treatment with Fastbraces take?

Treatment typically takes between three months and a year. However, some patients see results in just a few weeks. On the other hand, traditional braces often can take two to three years to completely straighten teeth.

Do Fastbraces hurt?

Although you may experience some discomfort after your braces are tightened, Fastbraces treatment is usually less painful than conventional braces.

Are Fastbraces a safe teeth straightening option?

Yes! Over the last 20 years, thousands of people have gotten Fastbraces.

Will I have to wear a retainer after treatment?

Yes, you will need to wear one to keep your teeth in their newly aligned position. However, unlike the case with traditional braces, you will only need to wear the retainer for about 15-20 minutes a day. Some people elect to wear the retainer only while sleeping.

Can anyone get Fastbraces?

If you have impacted teeth or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain, you shouldn’t get Fastbraces.

Do I need to refrain from eating certain foods?

Yes, chewy, sticky or hard foods should be avoided as they could damage the braces.

Is it an expensive treatment?

Generally speaking, Fastbraces cost about half as much as conventional braces. The quicker treatment time also reduces the number of visits to our practice, which may save you money.
