FASTBRACES: The Innovative Alternative to Traditional Braces

If you’re an adult or teen with a smile that could benefit from straightening, braces may be something to consider. However, many people decide against braces for years, whether it’s because they have dental anxiety or they just don’t want to be locked into years of treatment.

At Marietta Dental and Implant Center in Southwest Marietta, Georgia, Dr. Damian Sommerville offers FASTBRACES® to teens and adults seeking a straighter smile in less time (compared to traditional braces). 

Who can get braces?

Most people picture middle schoolers with metal wires decorating their smiles when thinking of traditional braces. However, more and more teens and adults are now realizing that they can also get a straight, even smile using innovative alternatives to traditional braces. 

If this sounds like you, you could be an ideal candidate for FASTBRACES!

How much faster do FASTBRACES work than traditional braces?

Traditional braces require anywhere from 18 to 36 months to straighten the crowns of the teeth, followed by the roots. FASTBRACES can straighten your entire teeth in as little time as 100 days. They also help your results last by stimulating new bone growth around the tooth roots, which holds your teeth in their new position and prevents them from shifting back. 

How FASTBRACES reduces risk from gum disease

While rapidly shifting your teeth and supporting them with freshly grown bone, FASTBRACES simultaneously uses patented technology to help treat gingivitis caused by misaligned teeth (also known as orthodontitis). 

Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease that can cause infection in the gum tissue and cause the gums to draw away from the teeth. Left untreated, it can lead to periodontitis and loss of multiple teeth. In fact, advanced periodontitis is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults

What is the FASTBRACES process?

First, Dr. Sommerville will take your full medical and dental history. Then, you’ll get a thorough dental exam, as well as radiograph images (X-rays) taken of your teeth and tooth roots. Once your mouth has been completely mapped out and your treatment process identified, Dr. Sommerville will discuss your options with you.

If you are a good candidate for FASTBRACES, Dr. Sommerville will describe and show you how they work, as they gently and rapidly shift your teeth into position. As an added bonus, FASTBRACES are tooth colored, so they won’t be as noticeable as traditional braces.

Once your FASTBRACES are in place, you’ll get a tailored treatment plan for checkups and adjustments until your smile is perfected. Dr. Sommerville will give you instructions for proper oral health maintenance with braces to ensure you get the most out of your treatment.
