Vista Pacific Dental - Daly City Dentist - FastBraces |


Fastbraces® is a new technology that allow most patients to get straight teeth from 3 months to about a year. Safe, Fast, Easy, and Affordable. Fastbraces® are proven effective with university and clinical studies over the last 24 years.

You and your children deserve broad beautiful smiles! Why would anyone want to be in braces longer than needed.  Fastbraces® is fast, safe, easy, and because treatments take less time, treatment is more affordable. Often, the cost of Fastbraces® is less than that of traditional braces.

Mouth breathing can cause narrow arches and unattractive smiles. By using functional appliances while children are actively growing, we can help them achieve a broad, beautiful smile.  These same appliances can be used for adults as well.

Mouth breathing can lead to orthodontic problems as well as other problems, such as lack of oxygen and poor sleep habits. This leaves children prone to daytime fatigue, an inability to concentrate in school, and headaches.  Adults can also experience daytime fatigue, and an inability to concentrate on the job.


Fastbraces® Technology uses a patented bracket design which offers unique, triangular shaped brackets that allow for the use of just one wire during the treatment process. These braces work on an entirely different mechanical principle than old braces. In the past, old braces would move the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year, thus requiring two or more years of treatment time.

Fastbraces® Technology moves the crown and the root of the tooth at the same time allowing for a much quicker treatment time. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases, just a few months.

Research has shown that the longer patients wear braces, the more root resorption (tooth root shortening) they have (American Journal of Orthodontics). University research in the same journal showed that this technology presented “even less root resorption” than the traditional systems tested. This could be because it moves the whole tooth in one stage, and therefore patients don’t stay in braces a long time.


University Research has shown that this technology had “lower sensitivity”, “a clear-cut reduction in sliding friction” and “the lowest mean frictional forces” compared to the old braces systems through university research.  This method typically works with just one orthodontic wire from start to finish, whereas old braces usually require a series of wires and tightening procedures. This method uses a special square super-elastic nickel-titanium wire which is activated by the heat of the mouth. This dynamic wire helps upright the whole tooth using the natural temperature of the mouth in just one stage, safely and comfortably.


The design used makes them appropriate for children, teenagers, and adults. Any dentist with Fastbraces® certification can quickly help you determine whether this form of treatment is appropriate for you or your loved one. If you are frustrated about your crooked smile, Fastbraces® is a wonderful option for regaining your self-esteem and getting the smile, you’ve always wanted.

Many children and adults with narrow jaws, deep overbites or receding lower jaws have unhealthy jaw joints which can cause: headaches, neck pain, dizziness, earaches, fainting, clicking or locking jaws, difficulty opening jaws or ringing in the ears. If infection has been ruled out, functional appliances can effectively eliminate these symptoms.


Don’t wait any longer to guarantee them a beautiful smile!

With safety in mind, this technology was developed to straighten teeth differently – allowing for a fast, safe and easy solution.
