Some Words About Us

straight teeth in 6 monthsDr. Clifton Georgaklis began practicing adult orthodontics and general dentistry in Brookline, MA in 1991. Now the practice focuses on Boston area adult cosmetic orthodontics offering Straight Teeth in 6 Months with Clear braces or Invisible braces, also called Lingual braces. Many now advertise our technnique without really practicing 6 Month Braces, but we are the only office that is actually able to finish 90% of cases in 6 months. Our pictures really tell the story.

Dr. Georgaklis lectures to dentists and orthdontists on his novel 6 month orthodontic technique. Many come to his Brookline office from throughout the country to observe Six Month Braces. He has been featured on Channel 7 news and treated many well-known dentists as orthodontic patients. Dr Georgaklis’ Rapidbraces technique has changed how adult orthodontics is being practiced worldwide, and has spawned various popular offshoots such as “Six Month Smiles” and Fastbraces since he published his technique in Dentistry Today in 1999.

What has separated his treatment for the past 25 years from conventional orthodontics is his focus on ESTHETIC dentistry, approaching the end result like a cosmetic dentist. He gives you your BEST smile, with unique services such as tooth and gum sculpting and SMILE DESIGN, a NO RETAINER option (it’s behind teeth- even on the uppers), or free removable retainers (most charge $500 extra). Most orthodontists see 50-100 patients per day, while we see only 8-12 patients which tells you how different our personalized treatment approach is. The cost is equal or less than conventional 1 – 2 year orthodontic treatment, and he can show you quality results he has published on 6-month braces because he was the first to originate the concept in 1991. This is truly the latest frontier in Cosmetic Dentistry. There are now numerous offices copying Dr Georgaklis’ 6 Month Technique and treatment philosophy as his articles and lectures have spread throughout the US and Europe. We are confident we can give you the smile you want in less time with Rapidbraces.

How We Do It

straight teeth in 6 monthsFirst we do a cleaning, any necessary fillings, and address other basic dental problems. Then the teeth are straightened in only 6 months, using clear, metal or invisible braces BEHIND THE TEETH. Part of the procedure involves sanding between teeth or sometimes removing a tooth. Very often patients also notice a more comfortable bite, less wear on crooked teeth, less food collection in between teeth and fewer gum problems in the future. The teeth are moved small distances so they stay straight! After treatment the teeth are held in place with either retainers or splinted (connected) behind the teeth so no relapse is possible. At the last visit other cosmetic treatments such as gum and tooth reshaping and bleaching can be provided for a dramatic final result. As a skilled general dentist Dr. Georgaklis has a lot of experience in these other cosmetic modalities.

6 Month Braces Testimonials

  • Most respected evaluator of new dental techniques in the world, had this to say about Dr. Georgaklis' techniques.
    "I congratulate you for your innovative and thoughtful approach to the subject. I feel certain that many more people would have orthodontic therapy if it could be simplified and made more acceptable to them as adults… You are doing a great service to educate those who have interest"

  • “I just wanted to thank you for sending all the pictures. I am still in shock about the results. Everyone I know has been astonished with my new smile. When I look in the mirror, it’s still not me looking back. I think it will take a while before it really sinks in. What can you say to someone who has made such an unbelievably positive impact on your life? In my wildest dreams never could I have imagined this smile being my reality. I’m not sure yet how I can possibly thank Dr. G and Jess too for her help. Thanks again for the photos and I will see you on….”

  • “I couldn’t believe when I looked at the mirror the last day of my treatment after six months. I was so amazed that I cried! Dr.G does incredible work, more than what I was expecting! More than a doctor, he is an artist and his hands are blessed. He made my dream come true and I am very pleased with the results. I live hour and a half from the office and that wasn’t an impediment to do my treatment in his office, it was worth it! If you’re having a regular orthodontic treatment right now with the old fashioned technique, and with another doctor, YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME!!! Call Dr. G…you’ll be glad and happy like me. Dr. G, YOU ARE THE BEST! Jessica, Vickki, thank you so much and God Bless!”

  • “My experience with Dr. G was excellent. He is very professional and answered all of my doubts and questions along with the rest of Cleveland Circle Dental staff. He met all my expectations and provided me the qualities I was looking for…. Ever since I could remember I have always been self conscious about my teeth. In pictures I would never smile, and in public if I smiled I would always put my hand over my mouth, or just not smile at all. This would lead to having issues in school and a lot of depression over the years. I was always thinking about what other people thought when I smiled…. Dr G. is very detailed and always makes you feel better. I thought my experience with braces would not be good, but the truth is that every time I had an appointment, I could not wait to get to the office. His staff is excellent; they are always friendly. Dr. G is very human and always puts himself in his patients’ shoes. My time with braces was fun. I would recommend him to all my friends who asked me who treated me… I feel very good now that everyone tells me that I have the perfect smile and beautiful teeth, it truly changed my life and I will forever be grateful. Thank you Dr.G !”

  • “I will never forget your promise to me that the treatment would take 6 months. I have to admit I did not believe you. My hopes were that the treatment would be completed within a year. You amazed me by finishing in just 5 months!…If there were slogans in orthodontics, yours should be ‘underpromise, then over-deliver.’ Thank you so much for improving my teeth, my smile and my life.”

  • “I have never been happy with my smile because of crooked teeth. I have seen many orthodontists and they have all said 2 years. I met a man who told me this particular dentist could straighten teeth in just 6 months. While sitting in the waiting room, I looked at pictures of previous patients and said to myself, ‘this man is not an orthodontist, he is a miracle worker.’ The day my braces came off, my smile looked so magnificent I could have cried. I felt like a totally changed woman. I would have never have gotten braces if I had to wear them for 2 years. Who says you’re too old to get braces and change your life? Dr. G. You are my hero!”
