Rapid Braces provides all the latest braces alternatives at the Brookline office. Lingual braces and Invisalign are both modern techniques for straightening teeth that can work for anyone. Lingual or behind the teeth braces are braces that are placed on the “lingual” or tongue side of your teeth. When placed behind the teeth they will be invisible to outsiders and allow you to clean the front side of your teeth exactly as you always have.

Invisalign is one of the most popular type of braces patients choose at Rapid Braces. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that can be removed at anytime to eat or brush your teeth. As your treatment progresses new clear aligners will need to be made to continue closing the gaps between your teeth. The clear aligners are also impossible to notice from the outside so patients won’t have to deal with an unattractive look while they complete Boston orthodontic treatment.

One area that many patients are concerned with before starting treatment is how they will keep their mouth clean. Traditional braces are clunky metal apparatuses that can make brushing your teeth completely a challenge. Patients wearing traditional braces often have to deal with broken brackets, snapped rubber bands, and places that seem almost impossible to reach. Dealing with the issues listed above will lead to bad breath that can be problematic in a social or professional setting.
