Affordable Braces Melbourne – Bracing Yourself For The C-Fast Revolution
Did you know that orthodontic braces aren’t just for kids? Instead, the desire for near perfect teeth has meant that a whole slew of adults are now seeking teeth straightening treatment. In fact if figures are to be believed, around 20% of the millions of people who seek orthodontic treatment are actually adults!
But hold on a minute!
We’re not talking about those ‘train track’ style braces you remember as a kid. You know…the ones that plagued the teenage years of many a child. Instead we’re talking about fast acting, discreet braces such as C-Fast.
So why bother with clear fast braces?
Here’s another statistic for you.. According to the American Dental Association 70% of all braces fitted are worn largely for aesthetic reasons. This plays right into the hands of fast acting braces such as C-fast. The reason? Because they only straighten those visible teeth that show when you flash a smile.
By focusing solely on these teeth, it allows the tooth alignment process to happen faster. If you’re wondering how quick… rapid results are possible within as little as 4-6 months, although in some cases it can take up to 9 months. In fact the meteoric rise in C-fast braces is partly down to a number of high-profile celebs who have already taken up the cause and embraced the C-fast revolution. So if you’re looking to improve the aesthetics of your smile, then you could be in esteemed company.
So why C-fast braces – After all, there are a whole bunch of orthodontic treatments available?
Here are the advantages…
• C-fast braces are more lightweight and comfortable than traditional ‘metal style’ braces
• Tooth coloured wiring and clear brackets make C-fast a discreet choice for adults
• As they only move the upper and lower front teeth they’re not as forceful as full mouth braces
• C-fast braces cost less – Shorter treatment times makes them an affordable option
• Moving teeth into a better position can avoid having to carry out more evasive treatments
So if you’re looking for C-fast braces in Melbourne, how does the process work?
When you visit our dental practice for the first time, we’ll explain the benefits of this type of orthodontic brace and arrange an appointment for fitting. Remember any tooth coloured brackets and wiring will be unobtrusive, so you’ve no need to feel at all self-conscious.
On the day of the fitting the brackets are glued into position in a non-invasive pain-free procedure. Next thin nickel titanium wires are threaded and adjusted for tautness. That’s it! The whole process takes around 1 hour to complete.
As you go about your daily life, your braces are doing their part. Over a few short weeks slight continuous pressure is applied which gently moves the front teeth into a neater tooth alignment. The result is that you’ll have a straighter smile that is more cosmetically appealing.
During the course of the short treatment you will need to come back to the Ava Maria Dental practice regularly so that we can check on your progress. The only thing we ask in return is that you brush regularly and carefully around your braces to ensure no food gets stuck in awkward places. This ensures that you stay as plaque free and orally healthy as possible.
