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.

Good Food to Eat with Braces

good food for braces

Beginning 6 month braces treatment at Rapid Braces is a big step for anyone looking for a perfect smile. Getting straight teeth can help make your mouth a healthier one and improve self-confidence drastically. While undergoing treatment it is important to take steps to ensure that your braces straighten your teeth as effectively as they can. One area that we continually stress to our patients is to watch the types of food that they eat.

Braces are made up of a complex system of wires, brackets and bands that can be very delicate. Eating the wrong types of food can cause any of these components to be moved or come unattached in a way that will compromise the effectiveness of your 6 month braces treatment. The following foods are ones that we recommend to patients just after they’ve gotten their braces put on and are looking for something to eat.

Fruits and Vegetables

It is important to stay away from crunchy foods like apples and carrots to keep your braces in top shape. Steering towards softer fruits like grapefruits, oranges and kiwis or steamed vegetables is a better way to avoid damaging your braces.


Meat is generally ok to eat as long as it is off the bone. When eating foods like chicken wings it is essential to pick the meat off of the bone before eating it.


Yogurt is one of the best things to eat when undergoing cosmetic orthodontic treatment. Soft cheeses can also be eaten without fear of damaging braces.


Pasta and soft-cooked rice are the way to go if you’re craving grains when wearing braces. The softer foods will be very easy to eat and cause little to no pain.


All types of hard candy should be off-limits during the 6 month braces treatment. The brackets of braces have a hard time standing up to the force it takes to bite through a hard piece of candy. Chewy candies can also present braces problems because they get stuck in hard to reach places. Because of this, sweet treats such as applesauce, bananas, jello, smoothies and ice cream are what we recommend at Rapid Braces.

If you are able to stay away from the foods we’ve warned you about your treatment will be able to stay on course. At Rapid Braces we offer 6 month braces using the Rapid Braces technique so our patients can get the perfect smiles that they want faster.

Choosing the Right Orthodontist

Getting any type of braces means making a commitment to one orthodontist and the treatment plan that they are offering. Before making a decision it is important to make sure that you have weighed your options and feel comfortable with the orthodontist you have selected. A few good things to look into are how long a certain orthodontist has been practicing for, what certifications an orthodontist has earned as well as if there are any patient testimonials available for you to look at.

How Long Do I Have to Wear Braces For?

Getting orthodontic treatment for straight teeth is a great step to take for anyone looking for a boost of self confidence. Straight teeth will allow you to show off your smile to anyone and feel comfortable in social situations. Many individuals, however, decide against starting adult orthodontic treatment due to the length of treatment time. Asking most orthodontists about how long you’ll have to wear braces for will get you an answer about how it depends on certain circumstances but they aim to complete treatment in about 2 years. 2 years is a long time to undergo a treatment for straight teeth for and is a major deterrent to many patients getting straight teeth.
