‘It is rare in the world of dentistry for a new development to create genuine excitement among practitioners. So I’m proud to report that a revolution has taken place in the way that we straighten crooked teeth – and it’s available right here at Synergy!

It’s called FastBraces and it is set to transform orthodontic treatment forever by giving you – perhaps for the first time – a beautiful and affordable smile in a fraction of the time it would normally take.

What makes FastBraces different from all previous treatments is that its patented design allows for the gentle movement of tooth roots towards their ideal final position from the beginning of treatment – typically just three to 12 months. This compares with two to four YEARS with traditional braces.

This means less time at the practice, fewer appointments – and less expense. It is safe, fast, easy and affordable and is available for both adults and children.

It’s a complete all-in-one system, which doesn’t just correct the front teeth but provides the most comfortable bite when both upper and lower teeth are treated together.

And the great thing is that it is no longer necessary for a specialist orthodontist to fit them. In fact, at Synergy we’ve already helped several patients and have a waiting list of others keen to try it out. One of our current patients is a 15-year-old girl who came to us when previous orthodontic work failed to produce the results she wanted.

Now that she has had FastBraces fitted, I’m confident she will have her beautiful smile back in time for Christmas.

Of course, if all this sounds too good to be true, then I can assure you that is exactly how I felt when I first heard about FastBraces at a major dentistry show in Birmingham.

By the end of it, however, I was sufficiently interested to put my name down to attend a seminar a month or so later to hear more about this ground-breaking new system. I was amazed by how beautifully simple it was and immediately saw the potential for many of our own patients.

FastBraces were developed in the United States and have been used there for over 20 years. The technology behind them is backed up by scientific research reported in well-respected orthodontic literature.

Unlike previous systems, FastBraces use just one wire which is far less invasive for the patient and allows faster movement of the teeth with minimum discomfort. It focuses only on the teeth which need straightening and aligns the roots in a way which makes the teeth ‘think’ they are growing again.

In other words, the teeth are not ‘forced’ into position – which is how it worked before – but gently grow into their new straight alignment, meaning there is less chance of them drifting back and less need for lengthy wearing of retainers.

Like all good ideas, it’s always tempting to think, ‘why wasn’t it always done this way?’ It’s as if we have been using a horse and cart for all these years and now someone has come along and invented the car.

If you would like to know more about FastBraces, just pop into the practice any time to arrange a free smile consultation and we will happily offer you all the help and advice you need.

You can even take away a photograph of yourself showing how your teeth could look after alignment, thanks to Synergy’s innovative ‘Smile Imaging’ technology.

I am genuinely proud to be able to offer FastBraces to our patients and urge anyone thinking of having crooked teeth repositioned to speak to us first. I’m confident it could transform the way you smile forever.’4
