Orthodontics is the treatment for improper bites (malocclusion). If untreated improper bites, or malocclusion, can cause tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationship, or both.
Orthodontic treatment can shift the teeth into a more ideal position and can also influence the control and modification of facial growth. This can be carried out as a preventative treatment or for purely aesthetic reasons with regards to improving the general appearance of your teeth increasing confidence and self-esteem.
Having misaligned, crowded or overlapping teeth can affect people’s overall appearance and confidence. This can also be a major contributor to ongoing issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. Teeth may also spread in the mouth and find themselves in the wrong place. This is often an issue for children whose adult teeth battle for position in the mouth.

Traditional braces work in two stages over a period of about two years. In the first half of the treatment, the crown of your tooth is adjusted and then the root of your tooth comes next for the other half of the treatment. Fastbraces does this simultaneously. This patented system follows a different mechanism so as to correct the position of the root from the very start of the treatment.
