At Your Gold Coast Dentist, we use cosmetic orthodontics (Fastbraces®) to transform our patients’ smiles.
If you or a loved one is tired of having a crooked smile, or gaps between your teeth, you should consider cosmetic orthodontics.
A winning smile helps you stand out from the crowd and changes your appearance to one that is truly stunning.
For many of our patients, an improved smile is that last missing piece to perfect their oral health and appearance.
Since academic research demonstrates that an attractive smile helps you get ahead in life professionally, socially, and in relationships, it is certainly worth your investment and time to improve it.
Orthodontics is broadly separated into two areas – functional and cosmetic.
Functional cosmetics corrects misaligned bites and issues with the teeth and jaw that can lead to trouble chewing or speaking, along with issues that cause inconvenience or pain.
Cosmetic orthodontics focus on the aesthetic elements of a patient’s smile, identifying and treating issues that cause smiles to be less attractive than they can be.
The good news, if you are looking for a smile transformation, is that it is faster to achieve many cosmetic goals than to correct a misaligned bite.
How can you tell if you need orthodontics?
Only your dentist or orthodontist can decide if and how you can benefit from orthodontics. If you think you might need orthodontics for your teeth, you need to make an appointment.
However, there are some things you can look for to give you an idea if orthodontic treatment might be for you:
- A bite in which there is space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together
- A bite in which the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally
- A bite in which lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth too far back
- A bite in which the upper front teeth stick out over the lower teeth
- A smile in which there are too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate
The other thing to look at is the mirror. If you are not happy with what you see, orthodontic treatment may be for you.
What Your Gold Coast Dentist Can Do
Orthodontics began with traditional metal braces, and then developed other techniques like the nearly invisible Invisalign.
But now there is a great new way to straighten your teeth and get the smile you’ve always wanted. This new approach is Fastbraces™, and we offer it at Your Gold Coast Dentist.
Traditional braces move the teeth by first moving the crown and then the root — however, the brackets used with Fastbraces® work differently.
The revolutionary approach of this orthodontic treatment is to move the crown of the tooth and root of the tooth at the same time.
Fastbraces® accomplishes this using elbow-shaped brackets with an elevated slot that, when wired, allow for increased torqueing of the root and the top of the tooth.
This gives Fastbraces® several advantages over traditional orthodontics.
Faster. Because Fastbraces® Technology moves the tooth and root, it can accomplish treatment goals in a far quicker time. Unlike traditional braces, which can take years, Fastbraces® takes from 3 months to about a year, and some patients begin to see results in short as weeks.
Less painful. University research demonstrates that Fastbraces® Technology creates less discomfort for patients.
Very little use of a retainer. With the complete alignment of the roots of the teeth, wearing retainers is needed every day for only 15-20 minutes (“tooth shampoo”).
Some people like wearing retainers during sleep (“teeth pyjamas”). This is another reason why Fastbraces® Technology is changing the way orthodontics is done altogether.
Success! Since its introduction in 1992, Fastbraces ®, there have been many success stories around the world. Adults, as well as children, have seen the benefits of this innovative system. Priceless confidence is gained from having a healthy, beautiful smile.
Fastbraces® Technology has been a solution that leads to a happier life for thousands of patients around the world.
Speed! You wear Fastbraces™ for a relatively short period; therefore you make fewer trips for checkups, saving time and money.
Is Fastbraces for you?
Fastbraces® works for patients of all ages. Your Gold Coast dentist will perform tests, such as X-rays, to check that you are a good match for Fastbraces®.
Here are a few simple questions to ask yourself that can help determine whether or not you are a good candidate:
- Would you like a straighter, more beautiful smile?
- Would you like that beautiful smile in a few short months instead of years?
- Would you like to experience less discomfort?
- Would you like to pay less for your orthodontic treatment?
If you answer yes to any of those questions, give us a call at Your Gold Coast Dentist. You could be a great candidate for Fastbraces®.
