Dr. Steven Deem of Dentistry For You is now offering Fastbraces®, a technology for straightening teeth that is fast, safe, easy and affordable.
Dr. Steven Deem and his staff at Dentistry For You specialize in beautifying smiles, maintaining your dental health and helping improve appearances. “Our promise to you is that the veneers, fillings, crowns and bridges we create will be the most technologically advanced material available in today's dentistry," said Dr. Deem. “Our mission is to provide you with quality dental care by combining personalized attention and a commitment to lifelong oral health.”
Dentistry For You is now offering Fastbraces®, a new technology that provides patients fast, comprehensive treatment. “Although there are no miracle shortcuts in orthodontics, Fastbraces technology is different by design, which allows for treatment time to be measured in months rather than years,” said Dr. Deem. “With safety in mind, Fastbraces has been developed and tested over the past 20 years and is now available in Broken Arrow. The process is designed to straighten teeth differently, allowing for a fast, safe and affordable solution.”
Results are experienced, usually with less sensitivity, in about a year. In some cases results have been accomplished in just a few months. “With the patented triangular design of the braces, cutting edge techniques and a special heat-activated wire, the new technology is revolutionizing the field of orthodontics,” said Dr. Deem. Traditional braces typically move teeth into position in two stages, usually over a period of about two years. During the first year, the crown of the tooth is moved into alignment. The second year of treatment addresses the correct position of the tooth's root. The Fastbraces® brackets work on a totally different mechanical principle.
The patented system uses an innovative bracket and a specially-shaped wire to correct the position of the root of the tooth from the beginning of treatment. This combination is key in realigning the root and crown simultaneously, allowing treatment to be completed in months instead of years. Thousands of consecutively treated patients and university research have shown that Fastbraces® are not only safe, but offer many additional benefits. It’s reported that patients often experience less discomfort, and there are no more risks with Fastbraces® than with traditional braces. And the fact that braces are worn for less time can mean that there is possibly less chance of tooth decay from improper oral hygiene. When the Fastbraces® are removed at the end of treatment, patients wear a retainer for only 15 minutes a day. (Results will vary from patient to patient.)
If you, your child or a relative has put off getting checked for braces, you owe it to yourself to schedule a consultation with Dr. Deem at Dentistry For You. It could be the best thing you ever did for you and your teeth.
