A Faster Solution to a Straighter Smile
A misaligned smile can affect your self-esteem and lead to oral health issues such as jaw pain, gum disease, and malocclusion (misaligned bite). Oftentimes, traditional metal braces are recommended to straighten your smile, but they can be slow-working and uncomfortable. At Alba Dental Centre, our Ontario dental team wants everyone to achieve a straight, beautiful smile. That’s why we offer alternative solutions to straighten your smile faster and with ease.
Our Alba orthodontist, Dr. Nuha Baalbaki is a proud Fastbraces® provider in London, Ontario. Fastbraces allows us to effectively address alignment issues in as little as three months.

What Are Fastbraces?
Fastbraces® is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment designed to straighten your teeth. This treatment is a great alternative for those who don’t want to undergo treatment with traditional metal braces. Fastbraces offer a faster treatment timeline so you can enjoy a straight, attractive smile without the hassle and delay of traditional braces.
How Fastbraces Works
At the beginning of the treatment, Fastbraces start by moving the teeth’s roots. The patented triangular bracket in the Fastbraces technology gently allows for movement of the crown and the root of the teeth simultaneously with no additional risk for the patient. Once the root is straight, the tooth becomes straight as well. This treatment requires less time than traditional braces. Additionally, patients report less oral pain and discomfort than those who wear traditional braces.
How Fastbraces Differs
When patients decide to undergo orthodontic treatment with traditional braces, they often don’t know about the negative side effects. Common side effects of traditional braces include:
- Oral pain
- Expensive treatment
- Root resorption
- Delayed root movement
- Changes to your natural bite
- Extractions often required
- Multiple wires are used
- Requires 24/7 retainers to preserve treatment
- Treatment timeline of two years or more
Fastbraces are better alternatives to traditional braces due to the following:
- Less oral pain
- Same or lower cost
- Less resorption
- Immediate root movement
- Natural bite preserved
- Extractions are rarely necessary
- Only one wire is used
- Only requires 15 minutes per day retainer use
- Treatment lasts less than two years
Frequently Asked Questions
▼ Am I a good candidate for Fastbraces®?
You may be a good candidate for Fastbraces if you have dental issues like overbites, underbites, crooked or crowded teeth, or spacing in your teeth. You may also be an ideal candidate if you’re looking for a way to quickly straighten your smile. Both children and adults can qualify for Fastbraces. Call our London, ON dentist office at (519) 777-2020 to schedule your consultation to learn if you qualify for Fastbraces. You can also request an appointment online.
▼ How much do Fastbraces cost?
The cost of your treatment depends on certain factors like the severity of your misaligned teeth and your insurance coverage plan. However, the cost is half the price of traditional braces. During or after your consultation with one of our Ontario dentists, we’ll give you an estimated cost as well as the treatment timeline. If you have concerns about the cost, we have affordable dental financing options.
▼ Are Fastbraces safe?
Absolutely! Fastbraces were designed to safely and effectively achieve a straighter smile than traditional braces. Unlike traditional braces, Fastbraces don’t present any risk to your oral health due to a shorter treatment timeline.
Metal braces require a long period of around two years or more and can be difficult to practice oral hygiene in hard-to-reach areas. This allows for cavities to form and present a risk to your oral health. Fastbraces allow you to have a healthy smile while enjoying increased comfort and faster results.
▼ What should I expect during Fastbraces treatment?
After Dr. Baalbaki deems you qualified for Fastbraces, she’ll create your treatment plan. During the treatment period, you’ll only have a few dental visits to monitor your progress and your dentist will make adjustments as necessary. You’ll need to make sure to follow a diet like avoiding sticky and hard food. This is to prevent damage to the Fastbraces appliance. Dr. Baalbaki will provide further instructions when you begin your treatment.
