FASTBRACES® & Invisalign® in Katy, TX
Do you wish you had a straighter smile yet dread the look and time you’d have to spend in traditional metal braces? As part of our cosmetic dental treatments, Heritage Dental gives adults a few favorable alternatives using the latest in orthodontics. We proudly offer FASTBRACES and Invisalign clear aligner therapy to help you achieve a straighter smile on your terms!
FASBTRACES can straighten your smile in much less time with an advanced, patented bracket system. FASTBRACES is perfect for patients who have crooked or spaced teeth, overbites, crossbites, underbites, or another complex alignment problem. With the use of tooth-colored, triangular brackets and ultra-thin wires, your orthodontic treatment can give you the results you want in three months to a year!
How does FASTBRACES straighten teeth so quickly? FASTBRACES moves the root and the crown of the tooth at the same time, whereas traditional braces move the crown first before the root. This cuts back significantly on the amount of time it takes to achieve a straighter smile. It also enhances patient comfort! With FASTBRACES’ triangular-shaped brackets, rather than traditional square, this new orthodontic treatment has the flexibility to move teeth faster than ever before and only utilizes one wire so the braces aren’t weighing patients’ teeth down.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
For patients not wanting to deal with brackets and wires at all, we offer aligner therapy. Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligner trays to straighten teeth in two-week increments until the desired results are achieved. We send patients home with multiple sets at a time so that they can switch to the next phase in the series without having to schedule an appointment.
Invisalign is a popular orthodontic option because the aligners are easy to maintain and removable. Patients don’t have to abide by any dietary restrictions as they can take the retainers out when they eat. The removable aligners also make oral hygiene upkeep a breeze as patients don’t have to try to brush and floss around brackets and wires.
