What is Rapid Braces Treatment?
Our patients who will undergo rapid braces treatment, for aesthetic reasons, wonder how long this treatment will take and when will it improve. At this point, the general patient expectation is that braces provide aesthetically positive results as quickly as possible.

In the old-style braces treatments, images that our patients were not satisfied with both aesthetically and the treatment processes could be prolonged. However, at this point, braces treatments both provide more positive results in terms of aesthetics and can be concluded in a shorter time. This fast braces method is called “Fastbraces”, that is, fast braces treatment. Thanks to the Fastbraces method, the treatment time of tooth crowding is reduced by almost half.

Treatment Process
With the Fastbraces method, recovery is achieved in 5-12 months. In addition, improvement can be observed even in the first weeks of treatment. Fastbraces method, which is a fast orthodontic technique, is an innovative application that provides results with a much more advanced system than conventional braces.

In the first year of classical bracket treatment, improvement is achieved in the crowns of the teeth, that is, in the parts that appear in the mouth; The roots are corrected in the second year, which is the next stage of the treatment. While the healing process takes approximately two years in classical techniques, the fastbraces technique simultaneously straightens crowns and roots with its mechanical structure. Thus, serious shortening occurs in the treatment process. Metal and porcelain can be used as materials in the fastbraces technique.

What are the advantages?
Much shorter treatment time.
The patient’s mouth and fastbraces adapt much more quickly. The patient’s adaptation process becomes easier.
Pain and aching formations felt in the first stages of classical bracket treatments are significantly reduced in the fastbraces technique.
Thanks to the effective improvement in tooth roots, the need for post-treatment reinforcement is reduced.
First Week of Treatment
The first week of treatment should be considered as an adjustment period; It should be known that the negative situations experienced during this period are temporary.
A feeling of fullness may occur in the lips due to contact with the appliances; but over time, the existence of appliances is used and their existence is not strange.
Teeth may ache during biting for the first few days and weeks. This is due to the movement of the teeth and is a temporary condition.
Aphtha-like wounds may occur on the lips or cheeks due to contact with the hook-shaped protrusions on the brackets. In this case, it may be beneficial to gargle with salt water 2-3 times a day until the wound heals.
Some brackets may break in the first month. In this case, if pain, pain or any discomfort is not felt, it will be sufficient to go to the doctor’s control on the normal appointment date. However, if there is a painful stinging, a dentist should be consulted.

Caring for Wires
How to Care for Braces?
Teeth and teeth should be cleaned of food residues after each meal. Otherwise, the food residues left on the braces can cause the growth of bacteria in the mouth and tooth decay.
Oral and dental care before sleep becomes even more important in this treatment process. For this reason, braces and teeth should be brushed before going to sleep. The tip of the brush should lean against the upper part of the wires with a 45° inclination and should be brushed as if sweeping from top to bottom. Later; All wires should be brushed horizontally to the right and left, and the chewing and inner surfaces of the teeth should also be brushed.
Interface cleaning of teeth and brackets should be done with appropriate brushes; toothpick should never be used.
In this process, the consumption of food by biting should be avoided and the food should be eaten with a knife or by hand, in bite-sized bites.
Hard-surfaced foods should be consumed softened.
Acidic drinks should be avoided.
