Fastbraces® or ClearCorrect – Which Is Right for Me?
Once you’ve decided that it’s time to get braces for yourself or your child, you’ll need to determine what type of braces will be best. Traditional braces are usually the least expensive option for straightening teeth, but their appearance, discomfort, and time commitment may mean they’re not the best choice for you. Two of the most popular alternatives are Fastbraces® and ClearCorrect. Learn more about these choices in this blog from Levens Family Dentistry.
What Are ClearCorrect Clear Aligners and How Do They Work?
ClearCorrect aligners straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, clear, removable aligners that move teeth gradually. People choose them because they do the job without wires and brackets or traditional braces. ClearCorrect aligners are virtually invisible, comfortable, and removable. This means that there are no food restrictions and you won’t need to make any adjustments to your lifestyle.
What Are Fastbraces® and How Do They Work?
Fastbraces®’ biggest attraction is how quickly they give results. Typical treatment time is just six to nine months. Fastbraces® are able to achieve such quick results because they start to move both the roots and teeth immediately. Conventional orthodontics moves your roots first, then your teeth. The end result with Fastbraces® will be a beautiful smile in about half of a year.

Both options do an excellent job of straightening teeth. Choosing between the two really depends on your preferences and lifestyle. If you want to keep your orthodontic work discreet and don’t have very crooked teeth, then ClearCorrect would probably suit you better. If you would rather get the orthodontic treatment done as soon as possible and having brackets on your teeth doesn’t bother you, then Fastbraces® is probably right for you.
