WATCH DR. ALI DISCUSS "SEDATION DENTISTRY":
If you have crooked teeth, you may have spent a lot of time looking into the different options available for fixing them. And you may have decided against traditional braces because most patients have to wear them for years. If this sounds like you, Fastbraces® may just be the solution!
Dr. Talib Salim Ali and the staff at Leesburg Family Dental offer a range of treatments for crooked teeth, and they are the experts in Fastbraces®!
What are Fastbraces®?
All around the world, Fastbraces® are becoming a popular way to straighten teeth. As the name suggests, Fastbraces® do the work of traditional braces but in a lot less time. Some Fastbraces® patients complete treatment in three months!
Fastbraces® use elbow-shaped brackets with an elevated slot, which is different than the square bracket used with traditional braces. This may not sound impressive, but what this means is that Fastbraces® are able to move teeth more effectively.
Traditional braces move teeth one part at a time. During the first part of treatment, the braces move the root into the desired position, and then during the second part of treatment, they move the crowns to align with the roots. Fastbraces® move both the root and the crown of the tooth at the same time.
Who can use Fastbraces®?
Adults, teenagers and even children can get Fastbraces®. They aren’t just used to correct crooked teeth. They help patients with spaces and gaps between teeth or teeth that are too crowded. They can help patients who have problems with their bite.
What is the procedure to get Fastbraces®?
The first step for any dental procedure is to get a thorough dental exam from Dr. Ali and the team at Leesburg Family Dental. If Dr. Ali decides you are a good candidate for Fastbraces®, he will discuss the procedure with you and let you know what you can expect. This is the perfect chance for you to ask him any questions you may have. Then, he will take impressions of your teeth and X-rays of your mouth. He will develop a detailed treatment plan designed specifically for you.
Do Fastbraces® hurt?
Research has shown that a patient with Fastbraces® experiences less discomfort and sensitivity than they would with traditional braces. One reason for this is because there is less friction as the teeth move with Fastbraces® compared to traditional braces.
What are the advantages of Fastbraces®?
Besides helping patients more quickly, there are also other advantages to Fastbraces®.
- Fastbraces® are a proven way to straighten teeth, and they have been used successfully by patients for more than 20 years
- Because the process takes less time, Fastbraces® are typically less expensive than traditional braces
- Fewer appointments at the dentist’s office are needed to adjust Fastbraces® compared to traditional braces
- With traditional braces it can be difficult to keep teeth clean. This can damage teeth, especially because traditional braces are often worn for years. Because Fastbraces® don’t have to be worn as long as traditional braces, this reduces the possibility of damage to teeth.
Why should I bother taking care of my crooked teeth?
Crooked teeth can affect a person’s self-esteem, making them self-conscious and reluctant to smile. Nevertheless, you may have decided that you can live with crooked teeth. But having crooked teeth isn’t just a matter of aesthetics. Crooked teeth can affect your oral health as well.
Crooked teeth can affect your bite, which can interfere with proper chewing. A “bad” bite can cause jaw pain and can strain the teeth, jaws and muscles of the head, which can increase the risk of breaking a tooth. Crooked teeth or teeth that are too close together can be hard to keep teeth clean, which can mean an increased risk of tooth decay, cavities and gingivitis.
How do I know if I need treatment for my teeth?
You can tell if you have crooked teeth, but when you come to Leesburg Family Dental, Dr. Ali will check to see if the alignment of your teeth is abnormal. He may ask if you have speech difficulties (such as a lisp), difficulty or discomfort when biting or chewing, and/or headaches and jaw pain, which are other problems that can be resolved with braces.
