What is Fastbraces®?
Fastbraces® were developed to straighten teeth differently. Fastbraces® is the revolutionary system of fast, safe, easy and affordable braces that is changing the field of orthodontics. It is a complete, non-extraction system for most cases, which provides patients with outstanding results.
How does it 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 key in realigning the root and crown simultaneously.
How long is 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!
Are Fastbraces® less Painful?
University research has shown that Fastbraces® Technology has low mean frictional forces, a clear-cut reduction in sliding friction and pain reduction with fitting front and back teeth together.
Do I have to wear a Retainer?
With the complete alignment of the roots of the teeth, retention is needed every day for only 15-20 minutes (“Tooth Shampoo”.) Some people like wearing the retainers at night (“Teeth pajamas”). No more retainers for hours during the day for months after treatment. This is yet another reason why Fastbraces® Technology is changing the way orthodontics is done altogether.

Hillcross Dental is proud to be your Premier Dental Office that now offers the amazing Fastbraces® Technology!
Revolutionary: Fastbraces® Technology is an innovative orthodontic treatment, specially designed to move teeth fast and efficiently with gentle forces giving beautiful, straight teeth in a matter of months… not years!
The triangular-shaped brackets, along with a super-elastic wire, create the ideal combination of gentle forces to move the teeth in a more natural way. Patients will typically start seeing results within the first few weeks and will truly experience the Fastbraces® Difference.
How Fastbraces® work:
- When teeth come in crooked, this means the root is typically not in the correct position
- When Fastbraces® triangular braces are applied with a wire instead of square braces, the distance between the braces is almost doubled
- This extra space increases the flexibility of the wire, allowing the root to be straightened upright in a year to as little as three months. Some patients see results in just a few weeks!
