AmericanDentalExcellence.com: Braces Fast & Easy
Crooked teeth are typically straightened and aligned with braces. A braces device puts pressure on teeth, forcing them to move into the right position.
Teeth need to be realigned when there is crowding, spacing, a crossbite, over bite, open bite or high canines.
Crowding, which causes overlapping of teeth, can happen when there is not enough room in the mouth for teeth that are coming in. The lack of space will prevent teeth from fitting properly in the jaw. Left untreated, the overlapping can lead to plaque buildup, tooth decay and even periodontal disease.
Excessive spacing between teeth can by caused by tooth loss or extractions, as well as a difference in the size of the teeth compared to the jaw. Gaps between teeth can also be caused by small teeth, impacted teeth and protruding teeth. Too much space between teeth can lead to gum issues, improperly functioning teeth and a less attractive smile.
A crossbite is typically the result of a misalignment between upper and lower teeth or jaws. Crossbites can involve one or many teeth. A common type of crossbite is when upper teeth biting inside of or behind lower teeth.
An overbite is when upper teeth extend over lower teeth. The overbite is typically caused by a jaw that grows unevenly. Overbites can lead to excessive wear on lower teeth, gum irritation and jaw problems.
Because an open bite occurs from the upper teeth not making contact with their lower, opposing teeth, the open bite usually can also result in jaw problems, speech impairment and chewing difficulties.
Canine teeth, also known as cuspids, have a pointed edge. They are strong teeth used for grabbing and holding on to food. When canines are too high, they can cause gum inflammation and gum-related problems.
Repositioning and aligning teeth with traditional braces can take up to 2 years. The expensive procedure uses numerous wires and often changes a personâ€™s natural bite. And unfortunately, pain during the process is not uncommon.
With Fastbraces, a breakthrough dental technology, repositioning teeth can take weeks or months instead of years. Itâ€™s a completely safe and affordable alternative for patients.
Fastbraces are triangular, not square-shaped like traditional braces. This increases the space between each brace. With more distance, the movement of teeth occurs at a faster rate. Only one wire is needed and extractions are rarely necessary.
During your initial consultation, photos will be taken of your teeth. A customized plan will be created to address any misalignment issues.
After the braces have been put on, the tooth root will immediately begin to move. The pain that commonly occurs with traditional braces will be significantly reduced. Many times retainers will only need to be worn approximately 15 to 20 minutes a day. Youâ€™ll also see fast results.
Fastbraces will preserve your natural bite and prevent oral health problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Once the braces are removed, the treatment is complete and youâ€™ll be enjoying a beautiful smile for the rest of your life.
