Speed™ Braces

Speed™ Braces

At Faces Orthodontics, located in Scottsdale, Peoria, and Paradise Valley, we are committed to providing our patients with the latest advancements in orthodontic care. One such innovation is Speed™ Braces, a revolutionary system that has transformed the process of straightening teeth. These braces offer numerous benefits, including greater comfort, potentially faster treatment times, and improved oral hygiene. Here, we delve into what makes Speed™ Braces a superior choice for orthodontic treatment.

What Are Speed™ Braces?

Speed™ Braces stand out in the field of orthodontics due to their unique design and functionality. Unlike traditional braces, which rely on elastics to move teeth, Speed™ Braces use a "Super Elastic – Energy Storing" Spring Clip. This Spring Clip applies a light, continuous force to gently and effectively move teeth into their desired positions. The result is a more comfortable experience for patients and potentially faster treatment times.

How Speed™ Braces Work

The core component of Speed™ Braces is the Speed™ Spring Clip. Made from nickel-titanium, this clip replaces the elastics found in traditional braces. The Spring Clip's design allows it to store energy and release it gradually, maintaining a consistent force on the teeth. This continuous, gentle pressure helps to move teeth more efficiently and comfortably than traditional methods.

Benefits of the Speed™ Spring Clip

Continuous Force

Provides a steady, gentle force that reduces discomfort.

Energy Efficiency

The energy-storing capability ensures that teeth are moved effectively without the need for frequent adjustments.

Reduced Friction

The self-ligating design eliminates friction, enhancing patient comfort and speeding up the treatment process.

Advantages of Speed™ Braces

Speed™ Braces offer a range of benefits that make them an attractive option for orthodontic patients:

Greater Comfort

The gentle, continuous force applied by the Speed™ Spring Clip results in less discomfort compared to the intermittent, stronger forces applied by traditional braces. Patients often report less soreness and irritation, making the treatment process more pleasant.

Faster Treatment Times

One of the most significant advantages of Speed™ Braces is the potential for faster treatment times. On average, Speed™ Braces can straighten teeth 4 to 6 months faster than traditional braces. This efficiency is due to the advanced technology and design of the Speed™ System, which allows for quicker and more precise movement of teeth.

Fewer Appointments

The self-ligating design of Speed™ Braces reduces the need for frequent adjustments. This means fewer visits to the orthodontist in Scottsdale, Peoria, and Paradise Valley, saving patients time and making the treatment process more convenient.

Improved Oral Hygiene

Speed™ Braces are the smallest metal braces available today. Their compact size makes them easier to clean than standard braces, which helps maintain better oral hygiene during treatment. With no elastics to trap food particles, patients can brush and floss more effectively, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.

Enhanced Aesthetics

The smaller, less noticeable brackets of Speed™ Braces provide a more aesthetically pleasing option for patients concerned about their appearance during orthodontic treatment. The sleek design helps patients feel more confident about their smiles even before the treatment is complete.

 Leading the Way in Advanced Orthodontic Appliance Design

Speed™ System Orthodontics has been at the forefront of advanced orthodontic appliance design for over 30 years. Manufactured by Strite Industries Limited, a leading North American aerospace company, Speed™ products benefit from cutting-edge technology and precision engineering. This expertise has led to the development of braces that are not only effective but also more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. Call us to learn more.

Speed™ Braces vs. Traditional Braces

While traditional braces typically take 2 to 3 years to straighten teeth, Speed™ Braces can often achieve the same results 4 to 6 months faster. This accelerated treatment time is a significant advantage for patients looking to achieve their ideal smile in a shorter period.
