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

More than Cosmetic Benefits to a Perfect Smile

At Rapid Braces in Brookline we give many patients straight teeth who are completely concerned with the cosmetic benefits of a perfect smile. Being able to show off those straight teeth to the world and not feel embarrassed in public due to crooked teeth are what they’re after. Straight teeth have been proven to raise self-confidence considerably but there are a number of other health benefits that come with straight teeth as well. Your mouth will be much easier to keep clean after getting a perfect smile at Rapid Braces and your bite will be improved to reduce any pain or discomfort as well.

perfect smile benefits

The biggest health benefit that comes along with a perfect smile is how much easier it will be to keep your mouth clean. Having crooked teeth means that there will be all sorts of gaps between the teeth that food can get stuck in. Brushing your teeth regularly will get most of the food out of your mouth but there will be some spots that are trickier to get to. Having food that stays in your mouth for a prolonged period of time will lead to decay and bad breath. Having straight teeth will make it much easier to make sure you’re able to clean everywhere when you brush. There won’t be any large gaps between your teeth that need extra attention or any odd shaped spaces you can’t even see to make brushing difficult.

An improved bite is another benefit of getting a perfect smile with Dr. G. at Rapid Braces. Having crooked teeth usually means your bite isn’t aligned properly which causes discomfort every time that you bite or chew something. Getting straight teeth will help improve your bite so that this discomfort you feel after eating will no longer be an issue. Many of our patients come back after completing treatment to tell us that they didn’t even realize how much pain their improper bite was causing. Fixing your bite now can also help prevent more serious jaw problems from occurring down the road.

Get a perfect smile at Rapid Braces and experience all the health benefits that having straight teeth can get you. A majority of our patients are able to complete their treatment in 6 months or less using Dr. G’s Rapid Braces technique. Once they are finished with their treatment they often find that their mouths are far easier to keep clean than it was before and that any jaw pain they used to experience due to an improper bite has been significantly reduced. Call Rapid Braces today and schedule an appointment to learn about all the benefits a perfect smile has to offer.

How to Handle an Orthodontic Emergency

Taking good care of your mouth and braces throughout your entire orthodontic treatment is the best way to avoid an orthodontic emergency. At Rapid Braces we realize that sometimes an emergency situation can’t be avoided even if you take care of your braces exactly how your orthodontist tells you to. The most common orthodontic emergencies that we see in our office include poking wires, broken braces, lost retainers and loose brackets. In the event of one of these issues the best step is to get an appointment with Rapid Braces scheduled as quickly as possible. Dr. Georgaklis is the one who developed your cosmetic orthodontic treatment plan and will know the best way to resolve the situation.

The following are some tips on how to best avoid ever having to deal with an orthodontic emergency:

Watch what you eat

Avoiding foods that have the potential to damage your braces is essential for anyone undergoing adult cosmetic orthodontic treatment. Anything that is crunchy, chewy or sticky can break the brackets and bend the wires of your braces. Keeping your braces in good shape is important to keeping your treatment on track and finishing up with a perfect smile.

A little bit of pain is normal

Experiencing some pain and discomfort while wearing braces is a normal part of the orthodontic treatment process. Our mouths can be particularly sensitive after just getting the braces put on. If any pain doesn’t subside over a few days it is best to schedule an appointment with Dr. G so he can take a look and pinpoint exactly what is causing the pain.

You can still play sports

Getting braces doesn’t mean that you have to stop playing your favorite sports. At Rapid Braces we recommend all orthodontic patients wear a mouthguard when participating in an athletic activity. Wearing a mouthguard will protect your teeth and braces from sustaining any damage due to an unforeseen collision.

By following the tips listed above and properly cleaning your teeth you will be able to avoid most of the orthodontic emergencies that are seen by Rapid Braces. It is important to get in touch with Rapid Braces as quickly as possible in the event of an actual emergency to ensure your treatment time doesn’t change and you stay on track to getting a perfect smile.

Braces for Adults

A bright and straight smile can help anyone feel more confident in their appearance. Many individuals are able to undergo orthodontic treatment when they are younger. Starting orthodontic treatment at an earlier age is a great way to get a perfect smile for life but for some people that isn’t an option. 65% of adults do not have well-aligned front teeth. At Rapid Braces in Brookline, however, we use a number of different adult cosmetic orthodontic treatment techniques that make it easier for adults to get braces.

braces for adults

Rapid Braces offers a number of braces treatment options so adults can undergo their treatment discretely. Wearing braces makes many individuals feel very subconscious to the point that they will avoid social interactions. We have clear braces, lingual braces and invisalign treatments available so you can get a perfect smile without having to worry about showing off your teeth. Clear braces use clear brackets and bands so they blend in with your teeth. Lingual braces are put behind the teeth instead of in front so they cannot be seen. Invisalign utilizes clear plastic alignment plates that are worn over the teeth and must be remade every so often for further teeth straightening.

Another advantage that undergoing adult cosmetic orthodontic treatment at Rapid Braces has is our speedy treatment time. Dr. Georgaklis is able to complete 90% of his patients’ cases within 6 months using his Rapid Braces technique. He does this by putting an emphasis on the finished result. Doing this allows him to save precious time on the entire treatment and have his patients leave his office with perfect smiles faster. Treatment time is a big reason why many adults do not undergo orthodontic treatment and Rapid Braces is aiming to change that.

Schedule an appointment at Rapid Braces to learn more about how we’re making braces for adults easier than ever. We understand the obstacles that get in the way of adults starting cosmetic orthodontic treatment. With our expert staff, getting your braces treatment complete in 6 months or less is a real possibility.
