Fastbraces are a modern, affordable alternative to traditional braces. The non-extraction technique employed by the cosmetic braces corrects the alignment of teeth and improves the bite of the lower and upper sets of teeth.

How fast is the treatment?

Unlike traditional braces, Fastbraces use only one wire and are able to move teeth much quicker. Treatment times vary depending on the patient but usually last between 3-10 months. In the majority of cases, teeth are not removed unless it is essential for health reasons.

Are Fastbraces safe?

The technology is well established in the USA and has helped thousands of patients to achieve straighter teeth. There is no more risk involved in having Fastbraces than there is with traditional systems. In fact, there is less chance of enamel being damaged or tooth demineralisation, with low forces being employed to successfully align teeth.

What happens during treatment?

The movement of the teeth crowns and roots is gentle and causes minimal sensitivity. Only five dental check-ups are required to ensure treatment is progressing as expected, but mild cases may only require one dental check-up!

There will only be 20 minutes of retention required each day, so a retainer will not be needed during the day once treatment is finished. Also, because there are fewer dental appointments required and the treatment is finished in a short space of time, Fastbraces have proven to be one of the most affordable cosmetic braces available today.

It's fair to say that, in my case, the pictures speak for themselves. A combination of teeth that could only be described as reminiscent of a broken piano, were only worsened when I broke my front tooth, throwing my face at a granite bolder whilst hiking! Like most people living with teeth that quite literally, were nothing to smile about, it had been my intention to get them straightened, and in the case of the broken tooth, crowned, as soon as possible.

If you are reading this, you probably already know that by getting your teeth straightened, you're going to notice a huge difference and love the results...

Before and after photographs always look good. They wouldn't be shown otherwise. Mine are no different. I'm really delighted with the outcome. But photographs can only depict results, and show nothing about how they were achieved. Like a maths exam at school, the correct result is of little use without knowing the workings. In my opinion, the workings don't come any better than they do at BDS. I visited a few places before deciding on my treatment. The decisive factor for me was the personnel, and I made an excellent decision on that basis. Dr Khaira is simply one of the most outstanding professionals I have ever had the pleasure to meet...
