If you have misaligned or crooked teeth, your smile may be something you are totally uncomfortable with. Even if you had braces when you were younger, the teeth can shift over time if they are not cared for, leaving you with less confidence as an adult. Fortunately, there are new options that many adults prefer over traditional braces, and Dr. Trimble is happy to offer Fastbraces® in Menomonie, WI and answer any questions you may have about them.
How Do They Work?
Simply put, Fastbraces do exactly what traditional braces do, only in a shorter time. With a unique design that moves both the root and the top of the tooth at the same time, the process is shortened.
Do They Hurt?
Anytime your teeth are re-positioned, there may be some soreness or tenderness. Some discomfort is completely normal, although the simultaneous movement of the tooth and root make Fastbraces more comfortable than traditional braces.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
With traditional braces, it can take up to two or three years to really get the results you want. With Fastbraces, you can see solid results in as little as a year. Within the first few months of treatment you may notice marked improvement in the straightness of your teeth.
Will All My Teeth Straighten?
Fastbraces can straighten all the teeth, not just the front ones. This option works for patients of all ages, from kids to adults. They provide the full treatment you would get if you chose traditional braces, just a different movement of the teeth.
Do I Qualify?
Almost 80 percent of patients qualify. There may be very specialized cases with impacted bone or TMJ that hamper treatment, but our dentist can discuss those with you.
If you are ready to start the journey to a straighter smile, schedule an appointment with us today to determine if Fastbraces are right for you.
