There was a time when just the thought of getting braces made many people uncomfortable. Getting straight teeth meant wearing awkward metal braces, brightly colored rubber bands and in some cases headgear. All that extra stuff in your mouth would undoubtedly lead to unwanted attention that could hurt your self-esteem. On top of that, treatment time would generally take a few years and consist of regular appointments with your orthodontist that would leave your mouth hurting. The good new is that the days of inconvenient metal braces are over. Modern technology has given us braces options that can appeal to almost anyone.
At Rapid Braces in Brookline we offer a number of more patient-friendly braces alternatives to give you the perfect smile that you’ve always wanted. Dr. Georgaklis realizes the strain that having braces can put on anyone and has done his best to make orthodontic treatment easier for patients of any age. The majority of the patients that he treats are adults who have decided that they can no longer wait for straight teeth. Often they are surprised that undergoing adult orthodontic treatment at Rapid Braces can be completed in 6 months or less and can be done with a number of aesthetically pleasing braces options.
Rapid Braces strives to make getting any type of orthodontic treatment as easy as possible. We offer Invisalign, clear braces and lingual braces that are all designed to be as unobtrusive as possible while wearing them. Invisalign uses clear aligner trays that have to be remolded as your teeth move to straighten your teeth as much as possible. The Invisalign trays can be removed when eating or brushing your teeth and are clear so hardly anyone will notice them. Clear braces use clear brackets and bands so the braces will blend in with your teeth. Lingual braces are put in behind the teeth so they are still able to straighten teeth effectively and cannot be seen from the outside.
More adults are getting braces than ever before with all the aesthetically pleasing braces alternatives and shorter treatment time available at Rapid Braces. Our expert staff strive to make adult orthodontic treatment as easy as possible and will answer any questions you have at an initial consultation. It is also important to remember to not miss any of your scheduled appointments. Dr. G. needs to be able to monitor the progress of your treatment to make any changes so you can have a perfect smile in 6 months or less.
