Fastbraces®

Fastbraces® uses revolutionary technology to offer fast, safe and affordable orthodontic treatment. Approach Dentistry is proud to offer this fantastic service to our patients. It offers comprehensive treatment, when used to treat the upper and lower teeth together, and does not require the extraction of healthy teeth.


Fastbraces® is suitable for both adults and children, and may be offered to children who are not eligible for NHS orthodontics. Because the system does not require extraction of teeth, it may offer an alternative, if an orthodontist recommends extraction based orthodontic treatment.


How long will it take?

Individual treatment time varies for each individual case and depends on alveolar structure, with average treatment ranging from 3-10 months.


Is it safe?

The technology has been patented and developed in the US over the past 20 years, and is backed by scientific research in numerous orthodontic literature. The system uses low forces to gently move the tooth and its roots into their correct position, and has been used to treat thousands of happy patients safely and affordably. www.fastbraces.com. Because the forces used to move teeth are so low and the treatment times much shorter then other systems, you are less likely to experience demineralisation and tooth decay.


Why choose Fastbraces®?

A single super-flexible wire is used from start to finish, along with special patented brackets, which greatly reduces treatment time compared to other systems. With complete alignment of tooth roots, the results are more likely to be stable, and achieve long-term success.

Inman Aligner

“I am so pleased I chose the Inman Aligner for both my upper and lower teeth, after a few months my teeth were straight, and it is so much more discreet than other systems, which was important to me. My dentist at Approach Dentistry was fantastic and after putting it off for years I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner!” Resham Kotecha.


Until now, the alternatives to straighten front teeth involved either long and expensive orthodontic treatments or destructive and expensive restorative treatments such as veneers or crowns.


But with the arrival of the Inman Aligner, all that has changed.


The Inman Aligner is a cost-effective removable orthodontic appliance that moves teeth in a fraction of the time of other systems. It aligns crowded or protruding anterior teeth using gentle but continuous pressure over a large range of movement. Surprisingly, this gentle pressure is the quickest way to move teeth but it also makes treatment very safe and kind to teeth.


People love the speed of treatment and it’s changing the face of dentistry as we know it. The average treatment time is only 4-16 weeks.


Only certified Inman Aligner dentists can provide them. Approach Dentistry has achieved this certification and provides Inman Aligners, here in North West London.


So how does it work?

The Inman Aligner is a clear plastic retainer with two spring loaded aligning bars that fit easily over the front four teeth. Unlike a regular brace, the Inman Aligner provides a constant gentle pressure on the teeth, easing them back into place far more quickly.


Apart from its aesthetic benefits, the Inman Aligner is easy to use and can be inserted and removed at any time, allowing eating, brushing to continue as normal. Once teeth have moved to the desired position, a very discreet retainer holds them in place, so they remain in their new position.


During the first consultation, an impression is made of the teeth and in the second, teeth are smoothed to make room for movement and the aligner fitted. For the duration of the treatment bi-weekly visits are required to review and adjust the aligner.
