Are your front teeth crooked? Spaced? Overlapped? There is a new way to correct these problems, usually in six months or less, with orthodontics that blends right in with your smile.
What is Cfast?
Cfast makes it possible for adults with minor alignment issues to get the smile they want. In fact, it’s common for most patients to get their final results in about six months. Cfast uses a series of clear brackets and durable, tooth-colored wires, so you can't see them.
While clear aligner treatments such as Invisalign may seem more cosmetically pleasing, it’s important to acknowledge that this wire-and-bracket approach provides faster and more reliable tooth movements. Also, people find wearing orthodontic trays 24/7 to become a nuisance. Cfast is similar to Six month smiles, which Dr. Blavin also offers, but uses a different bracket.
What are the benefits of Cfast orthodontics?
Besides getting results in just six months, which can be a major benefit for adults who don’t want to wear orthodontics for the standard 18 to 24 months, this system offers a more discreet approach to straightening your smile. Since Cfast only tackles small issues this also makes the treatment more affordable than other orthodontic options.
Will wearing Cfast braces be painful?
Of course, it will take a few days to get used to having brackets, but once you do you shouldn’t notice any pain or discomfort.
Are there certain foods that I won’t be allowed to eat?
Just as you would if you had traditional braces, you’ll also want to be careful what you eat to make sure that it doesn’t damage the brackets or wires. Foods that are sticky, chewy, crunchy or hard should be avoided. We will provide you with a list of foods that you should and shouldn’t eat during the course of your treatment.
