Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign? What is Fastbraces?

Invisalign and Fastbraces are a type of noninvasive orthodontic treatment that moves teeth into their ideal alignment over time. Fastbraces treatment is much faster than with traditional braces, and the brackets used are smaller. Fastbraces can give you the gorgeous smile you deserve.

What are the benefits of Invisalign and Fastbraces?

Some of the many benefits you can reap with Invisalign and Fastbraces include:

  • Straighter teeth 
  • Better bite
  • Easier teeth cleaning
  • Less adjacent teeth shifting
  • Clearer speech
  • Maximum comfortability
  • Short treatment times
  • Improved self-confidence 

The small brackets used with Fastbraces enhance comfortability and are less noticeable than with traditional braces.

Are Fastbraces right for me?

To find out if Fastbraces are the right orthodontic treatment for you, the team at Hyattsville Dental Care reviews your oral health history, takes dental X-rays, examines your teeth and gums, and discusses your desired outcome. They personalize each treatment to best match your needs.

What happens during Invisalign and Fastbraces treatment?

During Invisalign adn Fastbraces treatment, your dentist securely bonds brackets to your teeth in targeted areas. They attach wires to the brackets and tighten them to gradually shift your teeth into a better alignment. 

Periodically, you return to Hyattsville Dental Care to have the wires tightened. Keep your teeth clean before, during, and after getting Fastbraces.

When Fastbraces treatment is complete, your provider removes the brackets and wires, leaving you with perfectly straight teeth and a beautiful smile. Your treatment could last six months or less, depending on your unique situation, but every patient is different. 

What should I expect after my treatment?

After completing treatment, wear a removable retainer as directed by your dentist. 

You might wear it during certain times of the day or only at night when you sleep to keep your teeth in their proper alignment long term. You could also receive a permanent retainer on the back part of your teeth that’s not visible to other people. 

Stay on top of your oral health by brushing your teeth after meals, flossing daily, and seeing your dentist every six months for cleanings and exams.
