FastBraces are orthodontic solutions for patients who want to straighten their teeth in as little time as possible. With the FastBraces technology, East Lyme patients can still achieve their cosmetic goals; but they spend reduced time in treatment and are subject to much less discomfort than is associated with traditional braces. FastBraces work by allowing for greater space between braces thanks to a triangular design that provides better tooth support. The teeth move to their optimal positions faster and with greater ease – usually in a period of 6 months to a year.

Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for FastBraces?
You may be a candidate for FastBraces if you have crowded, crooked or overlapping teeth and are looking for a means of quickly straightening them without a long treatment time. To find out more about FastBraces in East Lyme and whether you are a candidate for treatment, make an appointment with your dental provider.
What should I expect during FastBraces treatment?
FastBraces only requires a few dental visits to monitor progress and make adjustments as necessary. Depending on your teeth and progress, you could be in and out of braces in as little as six months. However, you will need to follow a diet free of hard and sticky foods that could damage the FastBraces appliance. Examples of potentially problematic foods include hard candies, popcorn kernels, taffy and ice. Eating these foods can damage FastBraces brackets, which could prolong your treatment.
Will I need to follow any special care instructions after treatment is complete?
One of the greatest benefits of FastBraces is the minimal post-treatment maintenance that is required. In fact, most FastBraces patients can maintain their new smiles with only 15 minutes of daily retainer wear. Otherwise, you can return to your normal diet and enjoy your new, straighter smile.
