Can I Eat Halloween Candy with Braces?

Can I Eat Halloween Candy with Braces?

Trick or treat! After a night out going door to door collecting candy with your children, younger siblings or friends, you find yourself sticking your hand in the bowl to treat yourself. But wait! You have braces! Can you eat that?

Most orthodontists will say NO! Don’t eat candy! Dr. Georgaklis wants you to know that there are definitely candies to avoid, but some could be okay. Dr. G introduced Rapid Braces, using practices provided by Brookline area orthodontists to give patients straight teeth within six months. If you’re a patient of Dr. G’s, you wouldn’t want to prolong that process, right? Here’s a few tips for safe Halloween candy to eat with braces.

  • DO eat chocolate! It’s the softest candy and melts in your mouth so you don’t need to worry about it getting stuck on your braces. Try to avoid frozen chocolate, solid chocolate bars or chocolate with nuts or caramel. That’s when things get messy.
  • DO eat mint candies! Buttermints, peppermints, Junior Mints or Peppermint Patties are totally okay. It’s okay to suck on a hard candy, but resist the urge to bite down.
  • DO opt for other options like soft cookies or cupcakes. You may not find these options while trick or treating, but look for them at Halloween themed parties.
  • DON’T eat anything gummy, chewy or sticky. The consistency makes it almost impossible to clean from braces. Even harder chews are not okay – they could get stuck to the metal and ruin it.
  • DON’T eat small coated candies like M&Ms or Skittles. The sugary shells break into small pieces, getting stuck in hard to reach spots on your braces.

It’s important to remember you have your braces on and are on your way to having a perfect smile! Don’t ruin it with candy! 6 Month Braces treatment time will increase if pieces get stuck in your braces or you have to have something replaced. Don’t hesitate to call Dr. G and the expert staff at Rapid Braces if something doesn’t feel right with your braces, we’re here to help. And remember, candy gives you cavities!

If you’re looking for Rapid Braces, invisible braces or just have any questions, Dr. Georgaklis is your go-to guy for Brookline 6 Month Braces. Other orthodontists in the area can’t offer personalized 6 Month Braces treatment like Rapid Braces. For more information, contact Dr. Georgaklis.

Wearing Braces Back to School

Wearing Braces Back to School

It’s that time of year again when students of all ages are going back to school. Children start a new grade and adults may be beginning a new career path. In either situation, the first day of school can be nerve-wracking. This feeling can intensify if you recently were told you needed braces. But don’t let that stop you from enjoying your first day back to school! Dr. Georgaklis offers many alternative options to help you feel more confident. And he has even revolutionized the practice with his Rapid Braces method — most patients can be treated in just six months.

Here are two options for hiding those braces from your new friends at school:

Clear Braces:

The most cost effective way of hiding your braces is with clear braces. Dr. Georgaklis recommends clear braces to many patients because they are cost effective and provide great results in a short period of time. Some patients would rather consider clear retainers like Invisalign, but these don’t use the same force as real braces do. They sit over your teeth, instead of attached to them, which makes them less effective and require more treatment time.

 

Lingual Braces:

Lingual braces, otherwise known as “invisible braces,” are braces attached to the inside of your tooth (tongue side) — hidden from view! This option is popular amongst adults who want straight teeth but don’t want to deal with braces. Once un place, these braces work just like regular ones. These are a better option than Invisalign because Dr. G will have full control over teeth movement and maintenance. Plus, they don’t need to be replaces like the retainers for Invisalign do.

Dr. G works with every patient on a personal basis. He will meet with you for an initial consultation to hear your concerns, talk about budget and other options. Whether you’re going back to school, starting a new job or just afraid to have braces, Dr. G will make sure you feel confident in his hands! Contact us today to get started on your new smile!

Adults Wear Behind The Teeth Braces

Do you want a perfect smile but can’t commit to years of wearing braces? Getting patients of all ages straight teeth fast is our specialty here at Rapid Braces. We understand that the process of getting braces as an adult can seem overwhelming. That’s exactly why Dr. Georgaklis at Rapid Braces created the 6 Month Braces treatment so adults can get the smile they’ve always dreamed of.

Traditional braces are placed on the front of the teeth, require a lot of maintenance and can make whoever is wearing them feel very self-conscious in social settings. At Rapid Braces, you can forget all of the hassle associated with traditional braces. Our patients’ treatment plans start with an initial consultation so Dr. G and his expert staff can get a look at your mouth and recommend what would work best. Dr. Georgaklis gives his patients the flexibility to choose from a variety of braces options for a plan that works best.

One of the most popular choices for adults who want straight teeth are Lingual Braces. Lingual Braces are braces that are placed behind the teeth. The brackets, wires and cement are all placed on the tongue side of your mouth (lingual side). Once in place, behind the teeth braces work like traditional metal braces except they can’t be seen. This is a perfect option for patients who would like to keep their braces hidden, but still want the perfect smile they’ve dreamed of. Lingual, ‘incognito’ braces are an alternative to Invisalign but don’t require new aligner plates to be made on a regular basis.

While Invisalign requires a series of predetermined application, lingual braces gives Dr. Georgaklis full control over teeth movement and allows for a fast and timely procedure. Contact us to schedule an initial consultation and see why so many people are going to Rapid Braces for straight teeth fast today!

Keep a Clear Smile When You Go Back to School

It’s that time of year again when students of all ages are going back to school. Children start a new grade and adults may be beginning a new career path. In either situation, the first day of school can be nerve-wracking. This feeling can intensify if you recently were told you needed braces. But don’t let that stop you from enjoying your first day back to school! Dr. Georgaklis offers many alternative options to help you feel more confident. And he has even revolutionized the practice with his Rapid Braces method — most patients can be treated in just six months.

Here at Rapid Braces, we offer a variety of options aimed to match the customers direct needs. Dr Georgaklis specializes in fitting the customer with not only a fast option, but a cosmetically appealing one. We understand that Invisalign is not cut out for everyone’s budget or natural mold. The expert staff at Rapid Braces offer a variety of options that give the patient the power to select a method that works with their budget and ideal time frame.  We offer lingual (behind the teeth braces), along with the option of clear front braces with invisible brackets and wires.

Lingual Braces 

Lingual braces, are behind the teeth braces, meaning that the brackets, wires and cement are placed on the tongue side of your mouth leaving your smile untouched. This option is popular amongst adults who want straight teeth but don’t want to show off their braces. Lingual, ‘incognito,’ braces do not require the timely maintenance and management of  a series of plastic retainers like Invisalign, and are even said to be more discrete. Once in place, these braces work just like regular ones. These are a better option than Invisalign because Dr. G will have full control over teeth movement and maintenance. Plus, they don’t need to be replaces like the retainers for Invisalign do.

 

Clear Braces 

Cleveland Circle Dental Associates offer a clear braces option, where the brackets and wires are see through and subtle. This option is much more affordable than Invisalign, and can be completed at a faster rate. Dr. Georgaklis recommends clear braces to many patients because they are cost effective and provide great results in a short period of time. Some patients would rather consider clear retainers like Invisalign, but these don’t use the same force as real braces do. They sit over your teeth, instead of attached to them, which makes them less effective and require more treatment time.

Dr. G works with every patient on a personal basis. He will meet with you for an initial consultation to hear your concerns, talk about budget and other options. Whether you’re going back to school, starting a new job or just afraid to have braces, Dr. G will make sure you feel confident in his hands! Contact us today to get started on your new smile!

Orthodontic technology has steadily improved in recent years so patients can get straight teeth fast. Visiting a Brookline orthodontist to get straight teeth is no longer just for kids. Almost half of all orthodontic patients are adults. Rapid Braces offers braces treatment options that are designed to get you straight teeth fast.

The expert clinicians at Rapid Braces work hard to finish patient treatments as quickly as possible. Over 90% of orthodontic cases are completed in 6 months or less. Below are descriptions of the different braces options that we offer. Schedule a consultation at our Brookline office to learn more.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces, which are sometimes referred to as “invisible braces”, are braces that are placed behind the teeth so they can’t easily be seen. Lingual braces straighten your teeth much like traditional braces except they are placed on the opposite side. This type of treatment gives Dr. Georgaklis a significant amount of control over how you’re teeth are aligned. It is often the best choice for closing up small gaps between the teeth.

Patients also like the fact that lingual braces are placed on the inside of their mouths so treatment can stay discreet.

Clear Braces

Clear braces use clear brackets and bands to remain hidden. They will be placed on your teeth in the same way as traditional braces but will blend in. Clear braces can be a good choice for those worried about their appearance while wearing metal braces.

Clear braces treatment can also be completed in 6 months or less, much shorter than other invisible orthodontic plans that require aligners that need to be regularly changed.

Rapid Braces has been providing individuals in the Boston area with cutting-edge orthodontic treatment for over 20 years. Schedule a consultation today to learn more about our 6 month braces treatment.
