One of the reasons people may put off or avoid orthodontic treatments is the amount of time involved. But at Dental Charm, our dentist, Dr. Patricia Crisostomo, and our team can see you for an examination and consultation for FASTBRACES® in Chicago, Illinois. To start your journey to a straighter smile, call our office at 773-248-8580 and schedule your visit.
On average, you will need anywhere between 18 and 30 months to complete a treatment with traditional metal braces. That is a long time to live with limits to your diet, visits for adjustments, and taking extra care to clean your teeth and braces. It would be so much easier if you could find a quicker route to a straighter smile. With FASTBRACES, we can help you do just that! Usually, an orthodontic treatment using FASTBRACES will last only a year, and in some instances, less than that.
How does this treatment work? FASTBRACES uses a triangular bracket design and wires that are activated by your own body heat to produce the results you want in a shorter span of time. Additionally, regular braces move the crown, or visible part of your tooth first and the roots follow. With FASTBRACES, the positions of the roots and crowns of your tooth are moved at the same time. FASTBRACES are available with metal brackets, or you can select ceramic brackets, which can be a more aesthetically pleasing option. To meet with our dentist to see if this option would be a good fit for your smile, call our office, and one of our team members can help you plan a visit.
