Dr Raheil Toghyani a proud FASTBRACES® technology provider.

FASTBRACES® Technologies, a true American original, is celebrating its quarter of a century anniversary of helping dentists straighten teeth now in almost 50 countries. Teeth are crooked because they didn’t erupt properly and came in tilted, sideways, overlapping or spaced apart and, as a result, they are not upright. FASTBRACES® Technologies high performance bracket systems upright the roots of the teeth from the beginning of treatment with just one square wire by torquing and tipping them from the very first appointment. Treatment time for comprehensive orthodontic therapy should take more than 120 days with the FASTBRACES® CLASSIC™ SERIES™ and could take less than 120 days for non-deep bite cases with the FASTBRACES® TURBO™ SERIES™, depending on the patient cooperation and clinical experience of the treating dentist.

Schick Dental is proud to be a provider of Fastbraces®. Fastbraces® straighten teeth in almost half the time and almost half the price of conventional braces.

What are the advatages of Fastbraces®

Fast

Treatment times range from 3 months to about a year.
Fastbraces® Technology typically works with just one orthodontic wire from start to finish. Fastbraces® Technology uses a special square super-elastic nickel-titanium wire which is activated by the special design of the braces. This dynamic wire helps upright the whole tooth using the natural temperature of the mouth in just one stage.

Safe

Twenty years of history, thousands of consecutively treated patients and university research have shown that Fastbraces® are not only safe but offer many additional benefits. Patients often expericne less discomfort, and there are no more risks with Fastbraces® than those associated with traditional braces. Additionally, with the braces on for less time, there is less chance of tooth decay due to improper oral hygiene.

Affordable

Fastbraces® Technology is very affordable in most cases because treatment typically takes just a few visits. Less doctor visits mean less money spent, less travel getting to and from the dentist and less time off from school or work.
