FASTBRACES® has been getting attention because of the way it delivers beautiful results, even in about 100 days. FASTBRACES® uses breakthrough technology designed to cut out the two-step process of traditional braces. With traditional old-style braces, the first year is spent pulling the crowns of the teeth into position and the roots of the teeth are moved into place during the second year. FASTBRACES® technology allows the process of straightening the roots to an upright position from day one by using patented braces, a patented method for restoring alveolar bone, and a patented method for treating orthodontics of the gums (gingivitis from crooked teeth). The FASTBRACES® patented technology enables dentist providers to grow alveolar bone in order to straighten teeth quickly and avoid tooth extraction or sometimes even jaw surgery.
For adult patients looking to improve the aesthetics of their smile, Invisalign® offers a convenient and discreet way to achieve your ideal smile. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® uses clear trays to gradually shift the position of the teeth into the correct alignment. Invisalign® is most effective when used to correct minor crowding or perform cosmetic movement rather than extensive realignment. As the success of Invisalign® relies heavily on patient compliance, this treatment is often recommended for adults.
Similar to traditional metal braces, ceramic orthodontia use a series of brackets and wires to re position teeth. However, ceramic braces are tooth-colored or clear, providing patients with a less noticeable method of straightening teeth. As they can be used in more extensive cases of realignment and do not require diligent patient compliance in order to be effective, ceramic braces are ideal for anyone looking to improve their smile without the appearance of metal braces.
The most recognizable braces, metal braces are an excellent option for patients of all ages. Metal braces can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic issues, making them the most versatile treatment option. As patients visit our San Marcos orthodontist regularly to check-in on treatment progress, adjustments can be made as needed to keep your treatment within the expected time frame.
