Advantages and disadvantages of CFast treatment

Find UK Dentists »

A celebrity favourite, CFast is an increasingly popular treatment, which offers many advantages for those wishing to undergo orthodontic treatment to produce a beautiful new smile.

Advantages include:

- Speed: time is of the essence for many orthodontic patients today and CFast offers a rapid alternative to traditional fixed braces and aligners. CFast treatment focuses on the social 6, which cuts treatment time significantly. In mild cases, treatment may take a matter of weeks, while almost all cases will be complete within six months.

- Aesthetics: CFast braces look completely different to the braces many of us picture when somebody mentions fixed braces; they are light and fragile and they are made from clear and tooth-coloured components, which make them virtually invisible to others. Many people worry about having braces because of the impact on their appearance; however, with CFast, this is not an issue; you can go through the process with confidence and peace of mind.

- Comfort: CFast uses advanced technology to produce gentle forces, which minimise pain and discomfort.

- Cost: CFast works quickly and fewer appointments are required, which makes this is a cost-effective solution.

- Results: CFast is a reliable treatment, which achieves incredible results in a short space of time. As the brace is fixed, the success of treatment is not dependent on the patient remembering to wear a brace for a certain time period each day or swap their aligners over at the right time.

- Simplicity: CFast treatment is very simple; once the brace is in place, all you have to do is sit back and let it work its magic and see your dentist every few weeks.

Are there any disadvantages?

The only real disadvantage of CFast is that it may not be suitable for everyone; although it can have benefits for most patients, there may be other treatments that are more effective, especially in cases where a lot of movement is needed to resolve very complex issues, which involve the entire arch or the bite.
