Fast braces newbie

#1 Post by Ambs1283 »

Hi, I have now had fast braces for 11 weeks and I am looking for others with fastbraces to share and compare experiences. So far I have seen really good results, my teeth have straightened up no end, however, at my last visit to the dentist I had some shaving done and I have been experiencing awful sensitivity pain since. Is this normal? Should I be worried? Will it get better?!!

Yes, sensitivity after shaving is normal. Sensitive toothpaste and fluoride treatments can both be helpful. Some of the sensitivity may be permanent, depending on how much shaving was done, but it shouldn't be crippling, just "don't willy-nilly chomp down into an ice-cream cone" kind of sensitivity.

Are fastbraces similar to the inman aligner? I'm 3 weeks in to treatment and my teeth are no longer sensitive. Sometimes I am unaware of the pressure also, and fear it isn't working as I haven't noticed any movement yet :S

Hi I just googled the Inman aligned, don't think it's similar to fastbraces. Fastbraces are fixed braces.
Don't be disheartened if you haven't seen much movement yet, I'm sure you will x

Hi Ambs
Just wondering how you're getting on with Fastbraces?
I am considering getting either these or 6 month smiles but I don't seem to be able to find a lot of info on Fastbraces.
