Six Month Smile

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.

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.

  • sanding in between the teeth
  • not removing any teeth
  • reshaping gums and teeth
  • not changing the bite or profile unless needed (although this can often times be done in six months)

Using Orthodontic Techniques for Straight Teeth

Get Straight Teeth in Six Months with Orthodontic Techniques

Dr. Clifton Georgaklis has revolutionized dentistry with his 6-Month Braces. He uses his own techniques and knowledge combined with orthodontic techniques to create Rapid Braces.

Most orthodontists will tell you that you’ll need at least two years to get straight teeth. Dr. G can make it happen in six months. Orthodonotristry focuses on the treatment of improper bites and misaligned jaws, with straightening teeth as an added visual aesthetic. At Rapid Braces, getting straight teeth is the focus. Typical orthodontists see between 50 and 100 patients per DAY, but Dr. G only sees 8 to 12. He gives each of his patients a personalized experience.

The 6-Month Braces technique has two options: clear braces or invisible braces. Clear braces are done with transparent materials and plastered on your teeth like normal braces; but invisible braces are attached to the back of your tooth so they aren’t visible.

Rapid Braces can fix a number of different problems with the alignment of your teeth to give you the best possible smile. We’ve closed gaps, moved teeth to the right position, straightened crooked teeth and even spaced out crowded teeth. The experts at Rapid Braces are able to complete over 90% of cases in six months. Just read some of our patient testimonials to hear more!

“I will never forget your promise to me that the treatment would take 6 months. I have to admit I did not believe you. My hopes were that the treatment would be completed within a year. You amazed me by finishing in just 5 months!…If there were slogans in orthodontics, yours should be ‘underpromise, then over-deliver.’ Thank you so much for improving my teeth, my smile and my life.” —Hans Brings, Waltham, MA

 

“I have never been happy with my smile because of crooked teeth. I have seen many orthodontists and they have all said 2 years. I met a man who told me this particular dentist could straighten teeth in just 6 months. While sitting in the waiting room, I looked at pictures of previous patients and said to myself, ‘this man is not an orthodontist, he is a miracle worker.’ The day my braces came off, my smile looked so magnificent I could have cried. I felt like a totally changed woman. I would have never have gotten braces if I had to wear them for 2 years. Who says you’re too old to get braces and change your life? Dr. G. You are my hero!” —Dannetta Smith, Boston, MA

Adults Wear Behind The Teeth Braces

Do you want a perfect smile but can’t commit to years of wearing braces? Getting patients of all ages straight teeth fast is our specialty here at Rapid Braces. We understand that the process of getting braces as an adult can seem overwhelming. That’s exactly why Dr. Georgaklis at Rapid Braces created the 6 Month Braces treatment so adults can get the smile they’ve always dreamed of.

Traditional braces are placed on the front of the teeth, require a lot of maintenance and can make whoever is wearing them feel very self-conscious in social settings. At Rapid Braces, you can forget all of the hassle associated with traditional braces. Our patients’ treatment plans start with an initial consultation so Dr. G and his expert staff can get a look at your mouth and recommend what would work best. Dr. Georgaklis gives his patients the flexibility to choose from a variety of braces options for a plan that works best.

One of the most popular choices for adults who want straight teeth are Lingual Braces. Lingual Braces are braces that are placed behind the teeth. The brackets, wires and cement are all placed on the tongue side of your mouth (lingual side). Once in place, behind the teeth braces work like traditional metal braces except they can’t be seen. This is a perfect option for patients who would like to keep their braces hidden, but still want the perfect smile they’ve dreamed of. Lingual, ‘incognito’ braces are an alternative to Invisalign but don’t require new aligner plates to be made on a regular basis.

While Invisalign requires a series of predetermined application, lingual braces gives Dr. Georgaklis full control over teeth movement and allows for a fast and timely procedure. Contact us to schedule an initial consultation and see why so many people are going to Rapid Braces for straight teeth fast today!
