Using Orthodontic Techniques for Straight Teeth

Dr. Clifton Georgaklis has revolutionized dentistry with his 6-Month Braces. He uses his own techniques and knowledge combined with orthodontic techniques to create Rapid Braces.

Most orthodontists will tell you that you’ll need at least two years to get straight teeth. Dr. G can make it happen in six months. Orthodonotristry focuses on the treatment of improper bites and misaligned jaws, with straightening teeth as an added visual aesthetic. At Rapid Braces, getting straight teeth is the focus. Typical orthodontists see between 50 and 100 patients per DAY, but Dr. G only sees 8 to 12. He gives each of his patients a personalized experience.

The 6-Month Braces technique has two options: clear braces or invisible braces. Clear braces are done with transparent materials and plastered on your teeth like normal braces; but invisible braces are attached to the back of your tooth so they aren’t visible.

Rapid Braces can fix a number of different problems with the alignment of your teeth to give you the best possible smile. We’ve closed gaps, moved teeth to the right position, straightened crooked teeth and even spaced out crowded teeth. The experts at Rapid Braces are able to complete over 90% of cases in six months. Just read some of our patient testimonials to hear more!

“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.” —Hans Brings, Waltham, MA


“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!” —Dannetta Smith, Boston, MA

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.

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!

Show Off Your Smile with 6 Month Braces

One of the first things that people notice when you first meet them is your smile. Being confident to show your smile off is important and can have a number of benefits. Smiling has been proven to have a positive impact on the people around you and can play a bigger part in success than you might think. Having straight teeth can impact one’s ability to get a job and comfort level in social situations. Boston braces are available to patients at any age at Rapid Braces, so everyone can get a perfect smile fast.

6 month braces

Crooked teeth can be straightened out at any age for a better smile. A number of new methods for getting straight teeth have been developed recently so more and more adults are getting braces. Rapid Braces offers a few of these braces alternatives that we have found to be the most successful. Lingual braces, clear braces, and Invisalign are all available for our patients and have helped us get fantastic results fast. These alternate braces options are all much more comfortable than traditional metal braces and easier to keep hidden. Adults won’t have to worry keeping braces that are almost impossible to see in the first place hidden.

Closing the gaps between your teeth can help you avoid more serious issues in the future. Misaligned teeth are much more likely to have plaque and food buildup between your teeth. The food buildup will lead to tooth decay and can also be a precursor to more serious issues such as gum disease. Patients who get perfect smiles at Rapid Braces will be able to easily keep their mouths clean.

The number one reason that so many adults are getting braces put on for a better smile is the improved treatment time. In the past, getting braces meant signing up for 2 to 3 years of wearing annoying metal brackets in your mouth and frequent orthodontist appointments. The lengthy treatment and overall discomfort are things that many adults aren’t able to take on so Dr. G developed the 6 Month Braces treatment method. He puts an emphasis on the end result so more time is spent getting your teeth into perfect position and you can finish treatment fast. 90% of patients at Rapid Braces are able to get their braces off in 6 months or less using the 6 Month Braces method developed by Dr. G.
