Dentist in Rowlett And Mesquite,TX
In the past, if you wanted to straighten your smile, the only option was with traditional metal braces. These were effective, but the average treatment time with them would be two or three years. Today, another system is available that can give you a new smile in just a few months. Bayside Dental is proud to offer the Fastbraces® treatment to patients in Rowlett, TX, who want straighter teeth without the long wait.
What Are Fastbraces?
The Fastbraces treatment works with basically the same equipment as traditional braces – wires and brackets. The difference is, while traditional braces use square brackets and move the teeth in two stages (moving the crown of the tooth in the first year and the root of the tooth in the second year), Fastbraces use triangular brackets. The unique shape of the Fastbraces allows the system to move both the root and crown of the tooth at once, shortening treatment time considerably. If you have an overbite, crossbite, open bite, crowded teeth, or uneven spacing, we can help you achieve a straighter, more beautiful smile in Rowlett, TX.
Benefits of Fastbraces
- Shorter treatment time
- More comfortable
- Less risk of developing decay on the teeth because of shortened treatment time
- Reduced use of a retainer
How Does Treatment Work?
You will first need to have a consultation with our dentist at Bayside Dental. During this visit, you will discuss your issues and goals. We are experienced in orthodontic treatment and will be mindful of the best treatment for you. If you are a good candidate for the Fastbraces treatment, impressions and x-rays will be taken of your teeth to create a treatment plan. The brackets will be applied to your teeth during the following appointment. You can choose between standard metal brackets and ceramic brackets that can be colored to match the shade of your teeth for a less conspicuous appearance. Once the brackets have been put in place, you will receive instructions on how to manage the braces and care for them to ensure that treatment goes as planned. In just a few months, you’ll be able to enjoy a beautiful new smile.
