Cfast focuses on aligning what dentists call the ‘social six’ teeth (those most exposed to others).
A round –up of the benefits:
- Fast-acting. Your front teeth will be straight in 6 months.
- Cost-effective. As the treatment time is shorter than other brace treatments, the cost is dramatically less.
- The archwires and brackets are inconspicuous.
- They are worn for a small fraction of the time compared to traditional brace methods.
- More comfortable than traditional metal braces, as the pressure applied is minimal.
What is Cfast?
We offer Cfast braces as they have several benefits in comparison to traditional fixed braces. Treatment is straightforward and fast-acting as well as minimally invasive, aligning your top and bottom front six teeth and levelling out your arches. Although Cfast braces are not invisible, they are very discreet as the archwires and brackets are made clear coloured and made from nickel-titanium, so they’re also strong and hardwearing.
Are Cfast braces comfortable?
Cfast braces apply minimal force to move your teeth into a desired position. The arch wires employ minor pressure to move the teeth and there is no need for harsh tightening to achieve this.
Cfast braces were created by Dr Biju Krishnan in 2009.
Am I eligible for Cfast braces?
Many people believe that their age is a factor contributing to whether or not they can have orthodontic treatment or not. In fact, it is more to do with your dental health.
Since 2011, 1 in 5 patients undergoing orthodontic treatment is an adult and the stigma around having a ‘metal mouth’ is no longer prevalent. ‘Invisible’ treatments have also encouraged many adults to undergo treatments, as they do not their appearance in the workplace. Cfast braces cannot address any complex orthodontic issues, though straightening your front teeth is a good start to fixing more fundamental problems.
