Dentist in San Marcos, CA explains what Fastbraces® treatment is for smile alignment
At the practice of Dr. Robert Lin, experienced dentist in San Marcos, CA, patients have the chance to learn about the benefits of a variety of treatments available for straightening and aligning their teeth. Crooked, overcrowded, and misaligned teeth can have a negative impact on the appearance on your smile, but with modern orthodontic treatment, you can achieve the smile of your dreams faster than ever before. Many patients ask, “What is Fastbraces® treatment and is it right for me?” Our dentist explains this treatment as an alternative to more traditional orthodontia.
What is Fastbraces treatment?
Fastbraces is a specialized alternative to traditional braces. At Sun Smile Dental Group in San Marcos, CA, patients have the option of using this treatment to quickly and easily achieve a more attractive smile. Fastbraces do still utilize brackets and wires, but they use special, patented techniques to move teeth faster than ever before. Most patients are able to enjoy their brand new smile in approximately four months to a year, instead of several years with more conventional methods. This treatment is best used for patients who have mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth near the front of the smile, rather than for patients with poor bite alignment or more severe misalignment of their teeth.
What makes Fastbraces treatment different?
Fastbraces utilizes three special patented processes to achieve faster straightening of the teeth than other methods such as conventional braces and even Invisalign aligner trays. Most patients experience mild discomfort as their teeth are repositioning, but are often happy in the results they achieve in such a short period of time.
What are the benefits of Fastbraces treatment?
- Typically more affordable than traditional braces
- Often covered by insurance providers
- Easy to care for
Who is a candidate for Fastbraces?
Patients with mild to moderate misalignment of their teeth are encouraged to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Robert Lin and his team at Sun Smile Dental Group to discuss the advantages of using Fastbraces versus other treatments to achieve the results they would like to see.
During the initial consultation, the dentist will evaluate your teeth and see if you could benefit from this or other treatments. Patients with severe misalignment may still be encouraged to consider visiting a referred orthodontist for treatment, as some conditions may not be able to improve with the use of this treatment.
When can patients have Fastbraces?
Patients of all ages can use Fastbraces treatment to realign the teeth and address gaps, spaces, or misalignment. We welcome patients to come into our office and learn about this treatment to decide if it is right for them. If not, we do have alternative options.
What other treatment options are available for misaligned teeth?
.At our practice, we also offer Invisalign services, which can be used if patients are not considered appropriate candidates for Fastbraces due to more moderate cases of misalignment. Treatment may take longer, but Invisalign works great for patients who may not be able to get the smile they want with other options. Invisalign is a viable alternative to traditional braces as well, and it is much more discreet for patients who don’t want to cover their teeth with brackets and wires.
Additionally, if patients just have one or two teeth near the front of their smile that are misaligned, they can ask Dr. Robert Lin about the advantages of using porcelain veneers as an alternative. Porcelain veneers are special ceramic facings that are custom-made to bond over the front of a tooth or several teeth to cover them and improve the alignment and overall appearance. This is a fast and effective way for patients to address smaller imperfections that may be noticeable.
