The Truth About Braces


If your teeth are crooked or crowded, Dr. Robert Berry may suggest a treatment plan that includes orthodontics. Orthodontics is focused on correcting irregularities in the alignment of your teeth and jaws, such as misaligned teeth, crowded teeth, gapped teeth, and misalignment in the bite. While most people are aware that braces can improve their smile’s appearance, it can also do much more. Straightening your teeth also comes along with benefits that can enhance oral health and function. This is the truth about orthodontics! 

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a realm of oral healthcare that prevents, diagnoses, and treats dental and facial irregularities. Correcting orthodontic problems is not just about improving your appearance, although that is important to many people. Orthodontics can also treat malocclusions that can make it difficult to eat, speak, and can wear away healthy enamel and put stress on surrounding tissues and bones. Additionally, crooked teeth can be more difficult to clean and make you more at risk of developing tooth decay and/or gum disease. 

Your bite is a complex system, the American Dental Association explains. Your teeth, jaws, gums, and facial muscles work together to help you eat, talk, and smile. To get your bite lined up, braces might be needed. 

The Benefits of Braces

Braces are a dentistry tool that help correct teeth and bite issues. Sure, dental braces straighten your teeth and give you a picture-perfect smile, but they also do much more. Dental braces are also a corrective treatment for the following dental health problems: 

  • Overcrowded or crooked teeth
  • Too much space between teeth
  • Upper front teeth that overlap the lower teeth too much (overbite)
  • Lower teeth that bite in front of the upper teeth (underbite)
  • Other jaw misalignment problems that result in an uneven bite 

Are Braces Only for Kids?

A common misconception is that braces are only for children, but that’s not the case. Today, more and more adults are understanding the benefits of braces. The American Dental Association explains that many adults now seek treatment to correct long-term problems or to correct changes that gradually began to occur over time. However, adult orthodontic care does typically last longer than it does for a child. 


FASTBRACES are comprehensive orthodontics, just like the traditional metal brackets and wires. They are an alternative to the traditional method you’re probably familiar with, but they still utilize doctor-prescribed treatment plants to address dental health issues, such as overbites, underbites, crowding or crooked teeth, abnormal spacing, and more. 

These types of braces use breakthrough technology designed to cut out the two-step process of traditional braces. With metal braces, the first year focuses on pulling the crowns of the teeth into position and the roots of the teeth are moved into place during the second year. With FASTBRACES, we are able to straighten the roots from day one by using patented technology. 

What is FASTBRACES Technology?

The most revolutionary thing about FASTBRACES is the technology it’s created to use. To explain, this technology allows the process of straightening the roots to an upright position from day one by using three things: patented braces, a patented method for restoring alveolar bone, and a patented method for treating orthodontists of the gums (gingivitis from crooked teeth). The patented technology allows dentist providers to grow alveolar bone in order to straighten teeth quickly and avoid tooth extraction or sometimes even jaw surgery.

The Benefits of FASTBRACES

The biggest benefit we see with FASTBRACES is that it makes a noticeable difference in our patients within a matter of days, with the average treatment only lasting about 100 days — though the length of treatment is dependent on the condition of the patient. The other main benefit we see is that it comes with little to no pain for many patients. In fact, the creator of FASTBRACES never had to prescribe pain medication to his thousands of patients!
