SPEED Braces are miniaturized versions of traditional metal braces. The brackets (metal squares attached to the teeth that hold the wire) are 3 times smaller than regular braces, which minimizes lip and cheek irritation and eliminates the “railroad track” look. SPEED braces apply a continuous, gentle force to help move teeth faster, reducing pain and discomfort during treatment. These braces do not discolor or require colored elastics found on standard braces. With patient cooperation, treatment time is significantly less when using SPEED braces compared to traditional braces.
