How Fast Braces Work?

People who have crooked teeth usually have their teeth either growing in a sideways manner or in a slightly tilted way. This process starts from the root of the tooth that is planted at an angle. Fast styled braces target the root of the tooth with the intention of leveling to a straight position when the root shifts also shift to a straight position. Orthodontics today is capable of straightening teeth without the use of root maneuvering.

To make the fat bit happen, a special super-elastic nickel titanium square wire is used to apply pressure to the root of the tooth until it gets to the upright position. Fast brace technology helps to shift the crown of the tooth and its root in position at the same time.


Differences Between Fast and Traditional

The primary differences are said to be:

  • A shorter treatment period of between 3 months and one year to achieve straight teeth.
  • A more affordable option compared to traditional-braces because of their short treatment time.
  • Movement of the crown and roots at the same time during treatment.

Basically, the cause of the difference between the two treatments lies in their structures. In fast brace technology, the structure is made of self-ligating brackets that do not require an extra wire or elastic band to hold them in position. This can be achieved by other methods without resorting to root tampering.

This is a difficult task. Whereas there are plenty of orthodontist experts in fields like Invisalign and Damon System, finding a fast brace orthodontist is difficult.


Do You Need to Wear a Retainer?

Retention is necessary every day with a complete teeth alignment from any type of bracing.  There are those who prefer wearing the retainer at night, but most importantly, retainers should not be worn for hours after treatment is done.
