How can Cfast braces benefit me


What is Cfast?


Cfast is a game-changing way to realign your teeth, taking only six months. The treatment bears strong cosmetic advantages such as their tooth-coloured nickel titanium wires and clear-finish brackets.



How do Cfast straighten my teeth?


The treatment uses low force in order to move teeth more comfortably. The treatment places an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than on the position of your bite. You will need to visit us every 4-5 weeks for check-ups and adjustments to the brace.



Orthodontic treatment and adults


It was not so long ago that adults were resistant to the idea of undergoing orthodontic treatment as it meant a fairly significant change in appearance. Since 2011, 20% of people undergoing treatment is now an adult, due to more cosmetically discreet treatments such as Cfast.



Foods to avoid whilst wearing braces


As this is a fixed treatment, it is paramount to avoid foods that might jeopardise your treatment. Such foods include:

  • Caramel/toffee/sticky confectionary.

  • Crisps.

  • Popcorn.

  • Certain dense breads (bagels).


Benefits of Cfast

  • Renew your self-confidence

  • Improve the appearance of your smile.

  • Have a healthier smile – having gaps in your smile can promote the growth of unhealthy bacteria (plaque and tartar) which if left untreated, can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

  • Chew and smile with confidence and ease.

  • Misaligned teeth can cause speech impediments – Six Month Smiles can help to improve your speech.


How can I look after my braces?


As Cfast is a fixed treatment, you need to avoid eating the foods listed above. You should also thoroughly brush your teeth for 2 at least 2 minutes twice a day and floss as often as you can to remove any food particles and to cover all of your tooth surfaces (failing to floss means you are neglecting to clean 30% of your tooth surfaces!).  This will also prevent plaque and tartar from building up in the gaps of your teeth.

You should clean your teeth after eating and use a small toothbrush to cover the more difficult areas of your mouth. This will allow you to clean each bracket carefully – this sounds time-consuming but it will ensure you do not develop gum disease and render the treatment successful.

If you would like to arrange a consultation to talk about Cfast treatment, please do not hesitate to contact us.
