Braces for Kids
Misaligned teeth or a dysfunctional bite can be a problem for some children. While this can complicate their oral hygiene, the additional pressures of being a kid can affect their day to day mood, attitude and self-confidence. Fortunately, with the FASTBRACES® Technology, children can receive quick orthodontic treatment with minimum discomfort.
The biggest question for a child who may need braces would probably be “how quickly can I get them off?” While there are no miracle shortcuts in orthodontics, FASTBRACES® Technology is different by design which allows for typically treatment time of one year instead of two. Some patients even see results in as little as 3 months! The old braces are usually square in shape and typically move the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year, thus requiring two years of treatment time.

FASTBRACES® Technology typically works with just one orthodontic wire from start to finish, whereas old braces usually require a series of wires and tightening procedures. FASTBRACES® Technology uses a special square super-elastic nickel-titanium wire which is activated by the heat of the mouth. This dynamic wire helps upright the whole tooth using the natural temperature of the mouth in just one stage, safely and comfortably.
