Use Fastbraces To Fix Spacing

Diastema, or spacing as its more commonly known, is a gap between two teeth in your mouth. Spaces or gaps between teeth are common, and during day to day living generally cause few problems. But, some people are not happy with these spaces and are looking for a solution to bring the teeth closer together.

There are a number of reasons people have spaces between their teeth, some of which may include:

Missing teeth Some people do not get all of their permanent adult teeth, or can have a tooth irreparably damaged during childhood which results in a gap in their smile.

Teeth that are too small for the space in your jaw bone If your jaw has more space, your teeth may not be large enough to fill it. Your teeth may spread out, causing one or more gaps.

A large labial frenum. This is the small flap that connects your upper lip to your gums. If it grows between your two front teeth, it may separate the teeth, causing a gap.

Dental habits Children who use a dummy or suck their thumbs beyond 4 years of age may develop gaps in their teeth.

Tongue thrusting If your tongue presses against your teeth when you swallow, this can cause gaps in the front teeth over time.

Fast Straightening with Fastbraces in Dublin 2

Are you self-conscious about your smile? Would you like to do something about your crooked or misaligned teeth?

Fastbraces could be the solution for you!


While teeth straightening through traditional orthodontics methods has been around for many years, more recently this whole area of the dental industry is going through a transformation, providing patients with more options than ever. At Pearl Dental we offer a fast, safe and affordable way to straighten your teeth called Fastbraces®, provided by your general dentist, in less time than traditional metal braces.

The Fastbraces® Technology patented bracket design uses unique, triangular shaped braces that allow for the use of just one super-elastic nickel-titanium wire during the treatment process. This brace technology works on an entirely different mechanical principle altogether. Historically, old braces would move the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year. The Fastbraces® Technology helps move the crown and root of the teeth at the same time, from the beginning of the treatment.

Having been around for over 20 years, thousands of consecutively treated patients and university research have shown that Fastbraces® are not only safe but offer many additional benefits. Patients can experience less discomfort and there are no more risks with Fastbraces® than those associated with traditional braces. Additionally, the fact that the braces are on for less time means that there is possibly less chance of tooth decay due to improper oral hygiene.

Treatment with Fastbraces® Technology can improve the patient’s lifestyle because treatment typically takes just a few visits to the dental practice. Less clinic visits mean less money spent, less journeys getting to and from the dental practice and less time off school or work. Another great benefit is the reduction of retainer usage. When the braces come off one needs to wear the retainers only 15 minutes a day in the shower, cleverly described as Fastbraces® “Tooth Shampoo”.
