Speedbraces are an innovative new way to
straighten the teeth quickly and comfortably. Traditional dental braces
are comprised of large metal brackets and a wide variety of elastics.
Self ligating brackets straighten teeth up to six months quicker than
traditional braces and leave teeth healthy and beautiful.
Prior to the adhesion of traditional braces, a tooth or multiple teeth often need to be removed to create space.
Why should I choose SpeedBraces brackets for my child?
SpeedBraces brackets utilize a unique type of
technology to optimize the straightening process. Traditional archwires
are replaced with lighter, shape-memory, Speed braces wires that need
no tightening. There are no elastics, no ties and no palate expanders.
Speed braces reduce the amount of friction each tooth
experiences by incorporating a sliding mechanism. Teeth can move gently
into alignment without discomfort.
Here is a list of some of the key advantages associated with Speedbraces:
Better facial aesthetics.
Reduced amount of dental visits.
Reduced need for tooth extraction.
Reduced treatment time.
Speedbraces brackets differs from traditional braces systems in a number of important ways:
Speedbraces – are passive and
completely tie-less. The usual elastics and metals are replaced with
unobtrusive sliders. Not only does this mean that there is nothing for
the dentist to “tighten,” it also means that there is less chafing on
the lips and inner cheeks.
Shape-memory wires – Traditional braces
require a heavy archwire to link the brackets and assert pressure on the
teeth. Self ligating brackets replaces this with a hi-tech
lightweight shape-memory wire. In essence, this wire is programmed to
move the teeth quickly by working in conjunction with natural bodily
Healthy teeth – brackets are much smaller
than traditional brace brackets. They are designed to reduce plaque
build-up around the brackets and make home hygiene much easier. Plaque
build-up can quickly lead to decay – especially for those wearing
braces, which makes easy cleaning even more critical.
