Are your teeth crooked or not fitting together correctly? Uneven teeth are harder to keep clean, at greater risk being lost early due to tooth decay (or periodontal disease) and detract from having a healthy, lifelong smile.
So to help you move & straighten your teeth, have you considered orthodontics?
Traditional orthodontics consists of brackets, wires and sometimes elastics, that move crooked or gap teeth into position in two stages, usually over a period of about two years.
While these established treatments are effective at straightening and closing gaps, there are an exciting range of newer choices such as Fastbraces® that are faster, safe, easy and a more affordable cost for children and adults.
Fastbraces® have been developed to straighten teeth differently. Fastbraces® is a complete, non-extraction system for most cases, which provides patients with outstanding results and Milford Dentists are proud to be Auckland’s premier dental office to offer the amazing Fastbraces® Technology.
How Does Fastbraces® Work?
Traditional braces move teeth into position in two stages, usually over a period of about two years.
In the first year, the crown of the tooth is moved into alignment. In the second year, treatment addresses the position of the root of the tooth. However, the brackets used with Fastbraces® work on a different mechanical principle altogether.
The patented system uses an innovative triangular bracket and a specially- shaped square wire to correct the position of the root of the tooth, from the beginning of treatment. This combination is essential in realigning the root and crown simultaneously and significantly reducing the treatment time.
How Long is Fastbraces® Treatment Time?
Fastbraces® Technology gently allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final position from the onset of treatment, achieving root parallelism at the beginning stages, thus completing treatment from 3 months to about a year. Some patients see results in just weeks!
Compare this to older, traditional style braces - these typically take between 1.5 to 3 years of treatment.
How Much Do Fastbraces® Cost?
Fastbraces typically cost less than traditional or conventional braces. These braces cost under $7000 for upper and lower teeth. Fastbraces® treatment typically is usually priced between $5,000 and $7,000 ( including Essex retainers).
How Much Do Traditional or Metal Braces Cost?
The cost of traditional or conventional (metal) braces is usually between $7,500 and $10,000.
How Much Do Clear or Invisble Braces Cost?
Invisible or clear braces such as Invisalign cost more again and are likely to take longer to achieve similar results.
