® work differently than traditional braces, most people have questions about Fastbraces
®. Here are answers to some of the most common questions.
Q. How do
Fastbraces ® work?
A. Fastbraces ® are designed to do what traditional braces do - only,
they can do it faster. Fastbraces ® have a unique design that is able to move
the top and root of teeth simultaneously. Traditional braces have to move the
top and roots in two separate steps, so the process takes longer.
can wear Fastbraces ®?
A. Fastbraces ® are designed to work on most children, teenagers, and
Q. Do Fastbraces
A. Anytime you alter the positioning of your teeth – whether traditional
braces or Fastbraces ®, there is going to be some discomfort. However, since Fastbraces
® can move the top and rooth of teeth at the same time, they cause less
discomfort than traditional braces.
long does it take to see the result from Fastbraces ®?
A. Instead of waiting two or three years with traditional braces, Fastbraces
® can give most people straighter smiles in about a year. In fact, there are
plenty of people who have seen remarkable results from their Fastbraces ® in
just a few months.
Q. Are Fastbraces
A. Absolutely! Fastbraces ® are the original fast and safe patented
braces system developed by Dallas orthodontist, Dr. Anthony Viazis, about 20
years ago when he recognized the patients’ desire for braces treatment that
could be done fast without the risks that come with the older conventional
braces. With safety in mind, Dr. Viazis developed a system that could
straighten teeth differently than the conventional braces, thus, allowing for a
fast, safe and affordable solution. Don’t confuse Fastbraces ® with cheap
imitations that don’t deliver.
there a guarantee?
A. Fastbraces ® gives you lifetime satisfaction commitment! If, for
whatever reason, you need braces again for some of the original crooked teeth,
your provider will give you the braces again at no charge. You will simply pay
for the future for two new sets of clear retainers and records.
long will treatment take?
A. Typically, anywhere between three (3) months to about a year.
Q. Can Fastbraces
® straighten all of my teeth?
A. Absolutely. Fastbraces ® addresses the needs of all the teeth, not
just the front ones. Fastbraces ® are great for kids and adults. It’s the full
treatment just like the old braces; they simply move the teeth differently in
order to finish in about a year.
there clear braces available?
A. Yes, Fastbraces ® does offer clear brackets. This option does
increase the cost and length of treatment. If interested, please ask your
doctor about the clear braces option during your consultation.
Q. Do all
patients qualify for Fastbraces ®?
A. Most patients qualify (about 80%). The only conditions that Fastbraces
® does not address are teeth stuck in the bone (impacted), surgical (jaw) cases
and TMJ (joint) pain as well as some extreme underbites or multidisciplinary
(need very specialized treatment) cases.
Q. Can Fastbraces
® work for adults, too?
A. Of course. Fastbraces ® are great for kids and adults.
Q. How is
Fastbraces ® different from other so-called quick systems or even the
modern-day traditional braces?
® moves the root of the teeth from the beginning of treatment in order to
upright the tooth in the final straight position. Once the root is upright, the
tooth is straight. This is done by using a square wire from the beginning of
treatment that torques the root in position.
Most other orthodontic braces start with a round wire which cannot
torque the root but rather simply begins the alignment of the crowns of the
teeth until the doctor can move up in wire size to a square or rectangular wire
that can torque the root. Fastbraces ® can do that from the beginning. In
short, other braces are usually square in shape and typically move the crowns
during the first year and the roots during the second year, thus requiring
around two years of braces treatment. The patented triangular design of the
braces used at Fastbraces ® gently allows for movement of the crown and root of
the teeth at the same time, requiring typically one year of treatment instead
