How does CFast work?

Find UK Dentists »

CFast is a modern, innovative orthodontic treatment, which was developed in 2009. It uses delicate, discreet braces made from clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires to straighten the teeth and correct issues, which involve the social 6, the front 6 teeth on the top and bottom arches.

CFast is an increasingly popular choice for adults who wish to enjoy an attractive smile with minimal hassle during the treatment process; these braces are barely visible and they utilise gentle force to keep discomfort to a minimum. The process is very simple; once the braces have been fitted, patients attend follow-up appointments and the brace is removed once the dentist is happy with the position of the teeth, usually around 6 months later. There is no need to swap aligners or employ multiple appliances.

CFast is ideally suited to patients who require a mild or moderate level of correction; however, it can be beneficial for almost every patient.

How does CFast treatment work?

CFast works in a similar way to traditional fixed braces, by using forces created by nickel-titanium wires and brackets to move the teeth; however, this system focuses on the social 6 and it uses the latest technology to produce gentler forces, which move the teeth faster. The brackets and wires apply pressure to the teeth, which gently pulls them in the desired direction; the result is perfectly aligned, straight front teeth and a stunning new smile.
