Do You Want Straight Teeth without the Hassle?

November 29, 2020

Posted By: Dr. Fairfax & Associates Staff

With all of the talk of clear aligners like Invisalign and ClearCorrect, you may have overlooked an option that can straighten teeth in as few as 4-6 months. Fastbraces use low-profile, tiny brackets and wires to simultaneously move both the crown of the tooth and the root without compromising quality or outcomes.

How Fastbraces Work

Your Fastbraces provider Dr. Cerina Fairfax will create a treatment plan based on your smile needs. If you have crooked, overlapping teeth or gaps in your smile, Dr. Fairfax will determine if Fastbraces could work for you. If you are deemed a good candidate, our team will create impressions and take x-rays to determine your treatment course. Dr. Fairfax uses her experience and expertise to ensure your results look incredible and feel comfortable.

Regular Checkups with Your Dentist Are a Must

As with regular dental cleanings and exams, it’s essential to maintain regular orthodontic appointments for Fastbraces in our Fairfax, VA dental office to monitor treatment and make adjustments to the treatment wire.

We also recommend increased oral hygiene while wearing Fastbraces. Because brackets can trap food next to the teeth, you are at a higher risk for decay and gum disease. Even though flossing your teeth requires a little extra effort while you’re in orthodontic treatment, it’s worth it to protect your smile and your investment.

What about Orthodontic Retention?

As with all orthodontics types, you will need to wear a retainer to keep your new smile. After orthodontic treatment, teeth tend to drift back toward their original position. Wearing a retainer protects your smile and investment. We can discuss retainer options with you. Some are more durable and long-lasting than others, while others are less noticeable.
