Do you have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite? Perhaps you have noticed crooked teeth when you brush in the morning, or maybe you noticed that your child’s teeth have become misaligned as they have grown. Nobody wants to live with an underbite, overbite, or misaligned teeth.

That said, most people don’t want to wear braces for years to correct crooked teeth. Luckily, Fastbraces® offers a solution to treat alignment and bite issues quickly and effectively. Read on to learn more about using Fastbraces® to correct misaligned teeth, and contact our dentist at Mesquite Dental & Implant Center to see if Fastbraces® is right for you!

Why Should Misaligned Teeth Be Treated?

Almost everyone has met someone who has had to wear braces for a long period of time. As a result, you probably understand that misaligned teeth are a common problem. Crooked teeth, underbites, and overbites usually look unappealing. As a result, they can lead to self-esteem issues, especially for teenagers. The teenage years are difficult for most people, and crooked teeth only make it worse.

The problem with misaligned teeth is deeper than mere appearances. When you have teeth that are not in the proper place, it can become difficult to eat and speak normally. These routine tasks can lead to pain, discomfort, and in the case of speaking, embarrassment. Ultimately, this may further decrease confidence and self-esteem, causing the issues of misaligned teeth to be compounded.

To make matters worse, crooked teeth could result in more health issues as well. Misaligned teeth are typically more difficult to clean than straight teeth, which can make tooth decay and gum disease more common. If you are worried you may be developing gum disease as a result of crooked teeth, then be sure to learn the signs of gum disease and contact our dentist for an appointment.

At first, you may have thought the only issue with misaligned teeth was the unpleasant appearance they cause. Hopefully it is now clear that treatment is much more crucial than improving appearances. The team at Mesquite Dental & Implant Center wants to give you the resources necessary to treat misaligned teeth, and we believe that Fastbraces® might be the best tool available to you.

Traditional Treatment Methods

You’re probably aware that braces are commonly used to correct misaligned teeth. Braces apply consistent pressure to the teeth, causing the teeth to gradually move into the proper place. They are usually adjusted on a regular basis, and braces typically take at least a year to work effectively. While the braces are on, the pressure they exert may cause pain and discomfort to the wearer. Depending on the patient’s mouth and particular circumstances braces can take three or more years to align teeth, which can cause a greater financial burden as well as more pain.

Crooked teeth present a major problem that should be corrected. Unfortunately, it can be tempting to avoid braces due to the time commitment. You shouldn’t have to live with the consequences of crooked teeth, but you probably don’t want to wear braces for years. So what should you do?

How Fastbraces® Work

When traditional braces are used, the process of aligning teeth is divided into two steps. First, the braces are placed to apply pressure to the crowns of teeth, pulling them into proper position. The first year braces are in place is usually spent pulling the crowns of the teeth in this way. Once the crowns are in their proper place, the braces are then used to shift the roots of the teeth. Moving the roots of the teeth can also take a year or longer, which makes the two-step process of traditional braces cost significant amounts of time and money.

Fastbraces® is a patented system used to cut down on the time it takes to get the crowns and roots of teeth into proper position. With Fastbraces® the process of getting the roots of the teeth in proper position begins on day one. Moreover, they are designed to help the alveolar bone grow from the time the braces are put into place. Several different types of Fastbraces® exist. By speaking with our dentist, you can find the right type for you and begin aligning your teeth quickly!
