I wanted to share a great article written by my friend Greg Jorgensen of Rio Rancho, New Mexico about the slick marketing and truth behind FASTBRACES® and Six Month Smiles®. These orthodontic gimmicks do not move teeth faster but only offer limited movement of teeth at a very high cost vs traditional braces. An expert in orthodontics will be able to move all teeth most efficiently.
- FASTBRACES or Six Month Smiles cannot move teeth faster than any other orthodontic method.
- The braces used in FASTBRACES and Six Month Smiles are the same as those used in other orthodontic methods.
- Treatment time is shorter with FASTBRACES and Six Month Smiles because only a very limited number of teeth are moved.
- FASTBRACES and Six Month Smiles are usually more expensive than conventional braces because you are only getting partial treatment.
