Mouth breathing can cause narrow arches and unattractive smiles. By using functional appliances while children are actively growing, we can help them achieve a broad, beautiful smile.
Mouth breathing can lead to orthodontic problems as well as other problems, such as lack of oxygen and poor sleep habits. This leaves children prone to daytime fatigue, an inability to concentrate in school, and headaches.
Fastbraces® Technology – Different By Design
Fastbraces® Technology uses a patented bracket design which offers unique, triangular shaped brackets that allow for the use of just one wire during the treatment process. These braces work on an entirely different mechanical principle than old braces. In the past, old braces would move the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year, thus requiring two or more years of treatment time.
Fastbraces® Technology moves the crown and the root of the tooth at the same time allowing for a much quicker treatment time. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases, just a few months.
Research has shown that the longer patients wear braces, the more root resorption (tooth root shortening) they have (American Journal of Orthodontics). University research in the same journal showed that this technology presented “even less root resorption” than the traditional systems tested. This could be due to the fact that it moves the whole tooth in one stage, and therefore patients don’t stay in braces a long time. https://fastbraces.com/research_and_technology
Fastbraces® for Children, Teenagers & Adults
University Research has shown that this technology had “lower sensitivity”, “a clear-cut reduction in sliding friction” and “the lowest mean frictional forces” compared to the old braces systems through university research. This method typically works with just one orthodontic wire from start to finish, whereas old braces usually require a series of wires and tightening procedures. This method uses a special square super-elastic nickel-titanium wire which is activated by the heat of the mouth. This dynamic wire helps upright the whole tooth using the natural temperature of the mouth in just one stage, safely and comfortably.
The design used makes them appropriate for children, teenagers, and adults. Any dentist with Fastbraces® certification can quickly help you determine whether this form of treatment is appropriate for you or your loved one. If you are frustrated about your crooked smile, Fastbraces® is definitely your best option for regaining your self-esteem and getting the smile you’ve always wanted.
