Michael Stevens, BDS is
a proud Fastbraces® Master provider:
braces technology that is fast,
safe and affordable.

Fastbraces® were developed to straighten teeth differently. Fastbraces® is the revolutionary system of fast, safe, easy and affordable braces that is changing the field of orthodontics.

Traditional braces move teeth into position in two stages, usually over a period of about two years. In the first year, the crown of the tooth is moved into alignment. In the second year, treatment addresses the position of the root of the tooth. However, the brackets used with Fastbraces® work on a different mechanical principle altogether. The patented system uses an innovative triangular bracket and a specially shaped square wire to correct the position of the root of the tooth, from the beginning of treatment. This combination is key in realigning the root and crown simultaneously.

Fastbraces® Technology gently allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final position from the onset of treatment, achieving root parallelism at the beginning stages, thus completing treatment from 3 months to about a year. Some patients see results in just weeks!

Fastbraces® Technology is affordable in most cases because treatment typically takes just a few visits at the doctor’s office. Less doctor visits mean less money spent, less gas used getting to and from the doctor’s office and less time off school or work!

Since Fastbraces® Technology was first introduced in 1992; there have been great success stories around the world. Both children and adults have seen the benefits of this innovative system. The confidence that is gained from having a healthy, beautiful smile is priceless. Visit for more amazing stories.

If you are interested in Fastbraces®, the first step to a great smile is to meet one-on-one with Dr. Michael Stevens to determine if you are a candidate for the Fastbraces® system. Dr. Michael Stevens then does a comprehensive exam of your mouth and smile. Next, impressions and x-rays are taken to help Dr. Michael Stevens create a customised treatment plan designed specifically for your smile.
