Having teeth straightened once upon a time was quite straightforward.  Your General Dentist would at the right time write a referral for you or your child to see an Orthodontist for a Consultation.  The Orthodontist would devise a plan where you would possibly ( most likely ) need extractions to ‘make room’ for your teeth and subsequently a commitment to wearing braces for an extended period of time – averaging one and a half to two and a half years.

Thanks to modern dentistry however today’s patients can opt for an advanced technological method that makes the process comfortable, painless and fast.

Fastbraces® is one such example of innovative straightening systems. 

Dr Paul Sideris is a Brisbane dentist who has been using this system successfully for years now to straighten the teeth of his patients young – and adult.

We offer traditional braces, Invisalign, Clear Aligners and Fastbraces® at the practice as options to our patients.

Traditional Braces

The biggest concern most people have about getting braces is how long it takes for teeth to be straightened.

Braces make eating a little tricky, and some can also feel less confident when smiling.

Traditional braces can take two or three years, and if your an adult who would like to have their teeth aligned, this is a substantial amount of time to invest – and some feel it is too long to be wearing traditional braces for that amount of time.

What is Fastbraces®?

Fastbraces® are an alternative to traditional braces.  They are a newer technology which means most treatment can be done in 12 months.

Fastbraces® is Comprehensive Orthodontics just like traditional orthodontics and not short term cosmetic orthodontics.


Fastbraces® uses breakthrough technology to cut out the two-step process involved in traditional orthodontics. With traditional old-style braces, the first year is spent pulling the crowns of the teeth into position and the roots of the teeth are moved into place in the second year.

Fastbraces technology allows the process of straightening the roots to an upright position form day one by using a unique triangular shaped patented braces.



If you’re someone who wants a perfect smile in the shortest amount of time, Fastbraces could be your perfect solution.

For almost 25 years, patients have been benefitting from Fastbraces’ proven technique that delivers speedy results with less teeth sensitivity.

Does Fastbraces hurt?

Braces do not cause excruciating pain and at the most, they simply cause mild discomfort from time to time.

This revolutionary Orthodontic System has reduced the need for extracting teeth in up to 85% of Orthodontic cases which is quite a significant statistic. This means, less discomfort for the patient.

A comparison with other styles of orthodontics

If we compare with Clear Aligners or Invisalign –  Fastbraces® offer a distinct advantage where time is critical. You can enjoy straight teeth in half the amount of time.  This is certainly a plus for those individuals who would like to have their teeth straightened safely faster.  It also keeps the individual motivated when they see a noticeable difference in their teeth within a matter of days.

Invisalign or Clear Aligners do offer an advantage over Fastbraces in that you can remove your aligners whenever you eat. As well, the clear trays are almost invisible – a plus for individuals who feel self conscious about having metal in their mouths. Fastbraces® does offer a clear bracket option for the patient who would like a more transparent look when wearing braces.

Decreased reported pain is another reason behind the advantage of Fastbrace®s over other braces.

However, it is worth noting that clear aligners or Invisalign work best for people who only have minor misalignments and may not be appropriate for moderate to severe crowding.

In order to make the best decision for your lifestyle and goals, speaking more in-depth with your dentist is the best way to get stunning results.
