How does the Fastbraces® system work?
Fastbraces® are able to move teeth quickly because they use a patented bracket system, which moves both the root and crown sections of the teeth at the same time. In most cases braces move the crown sections of the tooth first and then the roots, in which case treatment can go on for a long period of time.
