Edgewood Dental Office Introduces Short-Term Orthodontic Solution

EDGEWOOD, KY--(Marketwired - July 14, 2015) - Edgewood Dental Care, a leading provider in cosmetic dentistry, recently introduced a new treatment that can straighten teeth in as little as three months.

Fastbraces is a revolutionary adult orthodontic solution that uses triangular brackets and a super-elastic nickel wire to drastically decrease treatment time. The special design of the braces moves the root and the crown at the same time. Traditional braces move the root and crown separately, which often extends the treatment to two or more years.

Fastbraces treatment time ranges from three months to one year, and both adults and teens can be candidates for the procedure.

“Using this unique orthodontic treatment, patients can get the treatment they need in half the time,” said Dr. Kevin McMahon of Edgewood Dental Care. “The treatment is a great alternative for patients who do not want to commit to conventional braces for two or more years.”

Fastbraces not only takes less time, but the treatment is less invasive than traditional braces because it does not require multiple wire changes. Fastbraces uses one super-elastic wire throughout the entire course of treatment. The treatment, which is less expensive than traditional braces, has helped thousands of people straighten their teeth in just a few months.

“We’re excited to offer this incredible service because it gives us yet another way to treat patients with the most advanced dental technology,” Dr. McMahon said. “With Fastbraces, patients can have straight, beautiful teeth in 20 weeks or less.”

Edgewood Dental Care offers general dentistry, restorative dentistry, sedation dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, gum disease treatment, dental implants, wisdom tooth removal, root canals and full orthodontics -- including traditional braces and Invisalign.

The practice uses cone beam computed tomography to take 3D images of patients’ mouths, oral cavity, jawbone and neck; intraoral cameras to take high-resolution images of patients’ teeth for education and diagnosis; CEREC technology to provide patients same-day crowns; LANAP laser technology to treat gum disease; IV sedation to treat fearful patients or patients in need of multiple dental treatments in one visit; and The Wand to deliver pain-free injections.

Edgewood Dental Care provides free coffee, drinks and healthy snacks to its patients and has amenities that will help keep patients comfortable during treatment.

Dr. McMahon uses dental implants in his practice to replace missing teeth or to stabilize dentures. He also provides bone grafting for patients who have had their jawbone deteriorate with the loss of their teeth. In July, Dr. McMahon will be named a Diplomate of the renowned International Dental Implant Association. This recognition is awarded to dentists who have completed hundreds of hours of continuing education in dental implant training.

Dr. McMahon earned his undergraduate and dental degrees from the University of Kentucky and began Edgewood Dental Care in 1986. Dr. McMahon takes more than 100 hours of continuing education every year to offer his patients the highest quality of dentistry. Dr. McMahon runs Edgewood Dental Care alongside Drs. Daryl Peak, D.G. Gutman and Troy Kramer.
