Do Fastbraces® Hurt More Than Traditional Braces?

Cosmetic & Implant Dentists Accepting New Patients in Lone Tree, Centennial, Highlands Ranch & Nearby Colorado

Fastbraces patient in Lone TreeYou want to straighten your smile as quickly as possible. Fastbraces®, with their triangle-shaped brackets and unique square wire, are designed to deliver results in a matter of months. This impressively short treatment time has many patients asking if Fastbraces® hurt more than normal braces.

Studies have found that Fastbraces actually cause less discomfort than traditional braces. That’s because the non-conventional bracket design exerts less force due to friction. Teeth move easily and smoothly, resulting in a more comfortable experience for you as a patient!

Remember that it’s normal to experience some discomfort during orthodontic treatment. Your mouth may feel sore for several days after you get Fastbraces® or have them adjusted.

Fastbraces patients tend to require fewer adjustment appointments than traditional braces-wearers. That can translate to less discomfort over the course of what is already a short treatment.

Here are a few easy ways to reduce braces pain:

  • Take over-the-counter pain medicine
  • Eat soft food
  • Rinse with warm water
  • Apply an ice pack to the outside of your mouth
  • Sip on a glass of cold water
  • Talk to our dentists about using oral anesthetics
  • Gently massage your gums

The biggest tip that we can offer is to be patient. Remember that you’re working towards a stunningly straight smile that will last for years to come. Our patients find that a few days of manageable discomfort are well worth the beautiful results that Fastbraces can achieve.
