Are you an adult that needs braces?

It’s a common misconception that braces are only for young people. This simply isn’t true and in fact, over the past decade, the number of adults undergoing cosmetic orthodontic treatment has risen by 40 percent. This is with good reason, orthodontics just isn’t what it used to be.

Much like every other industry, cosmetic orthodontics have come a long way in the past few years. New technology makes for lighter and smaller braces that are easier to put on. Braces come in a variety of different materials now, making them much more comfortable and much less visible. If you decide to go with lingual braces they are completely undetectable by anyone else. This is because the braces are placed on the inside of the teeth where no one can see them.

What to Expect with Traditional Braces

If you decide to go the traditional route, you can plan for at least 1-3 years of having braces on and several trips to the orthodontist during that time. Dr. Georgaklis, who practices cosmetic orthodontics in the Boston area has perfected a treatment that will produce results in just six months. Coupling this treatment with clear braces or lingual braces makes the whole process much less of a burden for patients. Being able to have the smile you have always wanted or needed in just six months and without anyone being able to tell that you’re doing it is a fantastic alternative.

Short-Term Boston Cosmetic Orthodontics

Dr. Georgaklis has revolutionized the way adults get straight teeth with his Six Month Rapid Braces method. He combines his dentistry expertise with orthodontic practices to give each patient a unique experience and a perfect smile. Most orthodontists spend 1-2 years perfecting the molar bite into the “ideal bite” typically not taking your concerns into consideration. Dr. Georgaklis and those who practice his short-term orthodontic philosophy, do little or no modification of the bite if it is functional and does not present a problem. Focusing mainly on the front teeth and not the molars accelerates treatment. The timeline to straight teeth is much shorter as a result. In 90% of cases, the process is shortened to just six months.

There are many reasons that an adult might consider getting braces and it isn’t always cosmetic. As we age our teeth move and change shape, this can cause an irregular bite due to crowding. When your teeth are crowded it can cause them to become crooked leading to increased bone and gum loss, erosion of tooth enamel, and tooth decay. Jaw pain and headaches are common side effects of this. Get in touch and see what the team at Rapid Braces can do for you.

What to Expect with 6 Month Braces

Getting braces as an adult is becoming more popular with treatments like 6 Month Braces that allow you to get straight teeth fast. Getting a beautiful smile in 6 months or less used to be almost impossible so many of our patients have important questions about braces options and 6 month timeline before getting braces put on.

Here are some testimonials from clients who have completed 6 Month Braces to give you a better idea of what to expect.

Dr. G and the team at Cleveland Circle Dental Associates are incredible. I always looked forward to seeing Kathy in the office or any of the other associates as they always are so kind and accommodating. From the first time I met Dr. G and Kathy, they patiently showed me all options and gave me a very affordable plan to get my treatment. After a short 6 months I have a brand new smile and can finally fully close my mouth all the way. My friends and family immediately noticed the difference and were very impressed with the speed, precision, and artistry of getting my perfect smile. Dr. G is a master of his craft and is a great/kind person. I highly recommend Dr. G and Cleveland Circle Dental Associates if you want to get a perfect smile.

– Josh

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 also provided me the qualities and expectations I was looking for. Ever since I could remember I have always been self conscious about my teeth. Whenever I was in pictures you would never see me smile.

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 as 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 his shoes in his patients’ shoes. My time with braces was fun. 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.

– Jordan

A friend from work told me about Dr Georgaklis after I had told her I was planning on getting braces. She went to him and got great results in a short time, so I thought I’d see what he had to say. I had four very overlapped front teeth and two needed crowns. He gave me an amazing smile fixing the overlapped teeth in just 6 and a half months, then whitening, the two crowns, and made everything more beautiful than I could have imagined. Everyone notices how perfect my teeth are almost daily, and he and his team made it all possible. I am forever indebted to Dr G for his personal care and attention to detail. He went way beyond other dental offices.

Many patients consider clear retainers like Invisalign but ultimately choose lingual braces because of treatment that can take HALF as long.

How Can Cosmetic Orthodontics Improve My Smile?

Improve Smile with Cosmetic Orthodontics

Getting braces at an older age has become popular than ever, thanks to the advances in cosmetic orthodontics technology. New methods of straightening teeth have been developed that allow for braces to stay hidden and quicker treatment times. Because of this, more and more adults in the Boston area are starting to take advantage of cosmetic orthodontic treatment. Rapid Braces is on the cutting-edge of new treatment methods and one of the best places in Boston to get straight teeth fast.

Cosmetic orthodontic treatment at Rapid Braces can help you get a beautiful smile fast with our 6 month braces treatment. 6 Month Braces are a great way to get a beautiful smile before a big event or if you feel like you missed out on orthodontic treatment when you were younger. Here are a few ways how Boston Cosmetic Orthodontics can improve your smile in 6 months or less.

#1 Get a beautiful smile

Having straight teeth is great no matter how old you are. A beautiful smile will feel good to show off and make it easier to avoid common health issues associated with crowded teeth. Straight teeth will help you feel more comfortable in multiple different ways.

#2 Keep your mouth clean

Properly aligned teeth are much easier to keep clean than crooked teeth. Irregular spacing and position can create spaces in your mouth for plaque and other bacteria to collect that could lead to a bigger problem down the road.

#3 Improve your Self-Esteem

When your smile looks good, you will feel good. A beautiful smile is important for one’s confidence. Aligned teeth can create a great smile that can help you feel comfortable in almost any situation. You will feel more excited and confident going to events with crowds, reunions, parties, and interacting with others.

All these factors can help you improve your smile and are the biggest reasons adult braces are becoming more popular every year. Rapid Braces offers a number of different options so you can find the best choice for you. Lingual braces are one of the most popular choices for new patients because they are placed behind your teeth so you can easily keep your braces hidden. Clear braces are another option that can be kept hidden because they use clear retainers and brackets. Schedule a consultation with Rapid Braces to learn more about the different 6 Month Braces options we offer that could be right for you.

The Best and Worst Foods For Your Teeth

So you just got your new Rapid Braces and you’re now ready to enjoy your six-month smile! Did you know that there are some great foods for your teeth along with some pretty bad ones? Here is a list of the best and words foods that you can eat with your new Six Month Smile!

Cheese – We all know how much everyone loves cheese, but now it comes with added benefits! It’s great for your teeth! Cheese is high in calcium which protects your bones, and your new smile will thank you for eating extra cheese. Cheese also raises the PH balance in your mouth which sounds a little odd but studies have shown that it reduces your risk of tooth decay significantly – so eat up!

Greens – As with most healthy food list greens usually find their way on there somehow. Not only are greens great for your overall health but they’re fantastic for your smile! They are high in calcium, folic acid and vitamin B which is the perfect combination of a strong and glowing six-month smile!

Yogurt – The cousin of cheese, yogurt is extremely high in protein and calcium which is essential for a healthy and glowing smile. Yogurt is actually very high in bacteria but it’s healthy bacteria! Called probiotics the healthy bacteria destroys the bad bacteria and helps protect against gum disease and tooth decay.

Ice – A lot of us are guilty of chewing on ice, but this is one of the worst things that you can do and your new six-month smile will not thank you for it. Chewing on hard objects such as ice can make it very easy for dental injury and the need for emergency room visits.

Citrus – We all love citrus as it’s full of Vitamin C and the sourness of citrus is enjoyed on many different foods and in drinks but too much citrus can be a really bad thing for your new six-month smile. The acidity in the citrus can actually wear away at your enamel and leave you with very sensitive teeth. So eat and drink your citrus in moderation!

Alcohol – Alcohol should always be used responsibly and in moderation but did you know that it can actually be very harmful to your smile? Drinking too much alcohol causes dehydration which leads to dry mouth which leads to a very unpleasant time for your smile! Being dehydrated and adding dry mouth on top of it can have very harmful effects on your smile such as gum disease, tooth decay, oral infections and potentially mouth cancer if the alcohol is drank excessively.

Taking care of your new six-month smile is easy if you eat healthily and eat bad things in moderation. Your smile will last you a lifetime if you put in the proper care and have regular dental check-ups with Rapid Braces! Remember to eat healthily and be aware of what you’re putting inside of your body!

Benefits of a Great Smile

There is no secret that when you smile more, you just simply feel better. Smiling has many documented social benefits. A Genuine smile can make you seem more likable, attractive, intelligent, and even trustworthy. Perhaps the biggest surprise to benefits of smiling, however, is that it can improve your health & even help you live longer. Here are some of the surprising health benefits of smiling.

  • Everyone feels down sometimes and smiling is the most simple, and the best way to improve your mood. So if you are having a bad day try smiling, improve your thoughts, and it may just lead to a genuine smile to lift your spirits.
  • Smiling and general laughter appears to help lower peoples’ blood pressure, and all around heart health. The reason is that laughter causes an initial increase in heart rate, followed by a period of muscle relaxation. The decrease in heart rate and blood pressure helps you reduce your risk of developing heart disease.
  • When you are in a stressful situation, try smiling! Smiling helps your body deal with stressful situations more effectively. Smiling results in a lower heart rate, telling your body that you have full control of the situation. Stress is generally caused by increases in heart rate and blood pressure. Maintaining a smile will provide you with both psychological and physical health benefits.
  • Have you noticed that you are drawn towards people who smile a lot? This is because people who smile are perceived as being more likable than those who don’t. Being likable makes it easier to build and maintain a better relationship with other people. This is important for overall health, well-being, more stable marriages, and better interpersonal skills than people with negative emotions. Keeping a smile on your face truly helps create healthier and stronger social bonding.
  • An incredible discovery is that laughing and smiling helps boost your body’s immune system. Laughter and positive thoughts release chemicals in your brain that fight stress and illness. Laughter therapy has even shown to increase immune responses in women who have just had babies. Positive thoughts really do have a physical presence in the health of the body, so always keep positive.
  • It turns out that the fountain of youth has been within you all along. It has been discovered that smiling and positive emotions are associated with increased lifespans. Now that is a reason to keep smiling.

The lesson here is, the next time you feel down, try wearing a smile even if it is uncomfortable. Your fake smile will turn into a genuine one, all while gaining benefits for your mind, body, and overall well-being. Set up an appointment with us to get your best smile, and wreak the benefits while looking great doing it.

Choosing the Right Type of Braces

6 Month Braces Options

Getting braces as an adult is becoming more and more common as people come to realize that your teeth never stop adjusting. It is becoming more and more common for adults to get braces as they realize it’s never too late to get a beautiful smile. There is no shame in having to get braces to get your teeth straightened. In fact, 20% of orthodontic patients are over 18 years old.  If you would like to detract from showing your braces, there are multiple solutions that we can help you resolve this problem.

Options For Straighter Teeth

The braces in the orthodontic industry today have been developed to be more comfortable and less obtrusive than those of the past. The evolution of braces has created many more options for you to chose your preference on how to adjust your smile. Invisalign is a popular option for adults. Invisalign is an invisible set of braces that are not noticeable as long as good oral hygiene is maintained. Invisalign is easily removable as it made from SmartTrack material that predicts controlled tooth movements and adapts accordingly. Lingual braces are another alternative to traditional metal braces. Lingual braces are braces that are on the tongue side of your mouth, and invisible from the outside. These are more costly because of the specialized tools required to attach and adjust the braces on your teeth. If you want quicker results and a less expensive option, then clear braces are the way to go. Clear braces use more force than an Invisalign retainer, are tough to notice, and the highly recommended option of Dr. Georgaklis.

How To Schedule An Appointment

Dr. Georgaklis can set up an appointment with you, once you contact him on our contact page. A date will be set for you to visit our Brookline office for an initial consultation. Once we are able to see how your teeth are aligned we can recommend treatment options and you can choose the best adult braces treatment for you. Our 6 Month Braces can give you a great smile in a short amount of time, as Dr. Georgaklis completes 90% of cases in as little as six months. Dr. Georgaklis’ attention to detail and extended personalized service to each individual patient are other reasons patients love 6 Month Braces treatment.

Never Too Old For Braces

Many people feel they’ve missed their chance to get braces after their teenage years, but this is a common misconception of the truth. The social stigma of braces is that only children and teens can have them. The facts are that more adults need braces than children as our teeth are always adjusting and have no age limitations on treatment. The main issue with adult braces is the “embarrassment” of people knowing you have them. Here at Rabid Braces, we get the job done quickly for you so that your worries don’t last long. We understand our customer’s concerns which is why we implement our multiple strategies to hide braces from covering your smile. We want every last one of our patients to smile confidently, and worry-free after an appointment with us.

Adult Invisalign Alternatives

Invisalign Alternatives for Adults

Invisalign is one of the most popular choices to get braces for adults. Patients of all ages have welcomed Invisalign because of its discreet treatment method. The Clear Plastic trays are perfect for adults who would like to keep their braces hidden from co-workers or friends. The Invisalign plastic slowly adjusts your teeth. Every couple of weeks, a new set of Invisalign trays are set to replace the old set. Invisalign is so popular, not only because of its discreet appearance but because of its discrete adjustments to your teeth with no pain.

For Adults that never got the Orthodontic attention they needed as a teenager, cosmetic orthodontic treatment with methods like Invisalign are becoming popular. Because so many adults are looking for discreet treatment options, we offer Invisalign alternatives at Rapid Braces that can get you a beautiful smile.

Incognito Braces

Incognito braces are the latest orthodontic trend for alternatives for adult braces. Incognito braces are hidden from your smile as they are affixed to the back of the teeth. This technique allows the braces to be virtually invisible. The Incognito braces also eliminate the concern of braces damaging the front of the teeth. Your white smile cannot be damaged with this orthodontic treatment.

Clear Braces

Getting Clear Braces is another way to avoid unattractive metal braces during 6 Month Cosmetic Orthodontic Treatment. Clear Braces use clear bands so they can’t be seen easily and are more affordable than lingual braces put behind the teeth. Clear Braces are perfect for adults who don’t want the attention that orthodontic treatment can bring. Fixing your smile as an adult is easier than you can imagine. Schedule an appointment at Rapid Braces and we can take a look at your teeth and see which Invisalign Alternatives would be best for you.
