In the past, getting crooked or misaligned teeth straightened out for a perfect smile was a painful experience. Getting straight teeth meant wearing braces that consisted of metal brackets, tiny elastic bands, headgear and more. Luckily, orthodontic technology has taken leaps forward in recent years for adults who need a more flexible orthodontic option. Rapid Braces in Brookline has been a offering different types of 6 month adult braces for a number of years so that we can give our patients the most flexible way to get a perfect smile.
More and more adults are choosing Rapid Braces for their orthodontic treatment due to our quick treatment process. Braces have traditionally taken more than two years to get taken off but not with our 6 month braces. With Rapid Braces’ 6 month braces treatment option we are able to complete over 90% of our orthodontic cases in 6 months or less. Adults are able to fit our orthodontic treatment into their busy schedules because of the manageable time commitment.
Another reason why so many adults are getting orthodontic treatment at Rapid Braces is the different types of modern braces alternatives that we offer. Unlike traditional braces, our braces will be tough to notice while you are wearing them and be comfortable to keep on. Lingual or behind the teeth braces are put in behind the teeth so that they can’t be seen from the outside. Behind the teeth braces offer a good amount of control over how your teeth are aligned. Invisible or clear braces are a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear bands so that the braces will blend in with the rest of your mouth. Invisalign, Rapid Braces’ most popular treatment option, straightens teeth using clear aligner plates that must be recast multiple times during treatment to continue nudging your teeth into perfect position. Invisalign aligner trays can be removed at any time to make them the most comfortable braces option available.
Choosing which braces alternative for adults is right for you can be tricky. Every new patient that we see at Rapid Braces starts their treatment with an initial consultation so that Dr. G can get a good feel for how your teeth are aligned and what would be best to get a perfect smile. The experts at Rapid Braces can then present all the options that are available for you so you can choose the option that works best for you.
