If your teeth are crooked or crowded, Dr. Laney Schuman may recommend Fastbraces® in Granite City, Illinois. When teeth are crooked, they did not come in correctly. They may have grown in tilted, sideways, or not in the upright position. Because of this, a tooth that is crooked also has crooked roots. Unlike other orthodontic procedures, Fastbraces targets the tooth roots from the beginning of treatment. If the tooth root becomes upright and straight, the tooth will straighten. Fastbraces have unique triangular brackets and square, super-elastic wires made from nickel-titanium that upright the tooth root from the beginning of treatment. Because of this, treatment can be completed in as little as three months to one year.
Fastbraces have many advantages. They are very fast, with treatment times of about three months to about a year. Cosmetic straightening can be completed in weeks, while comprehensive orthodontic cases can be completed in months. This is in contrast to traditional braces, which take about two years to straighten your smile. Fastbraces are safe. They have a 25 year history of thousands of successful treatments. Fastbraces come in metal or clear and tooth-colored brackets and wires.
