SPEED BRACES


 

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.
  • Fantastic results.
  • Increased aesthetics.
  • Increased comfort.
  • 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 forces.

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.
