The days of having to deal with unsightly braces are long gone. With his Rapid Braces technique of treatment, Dr. Georgaklis has changed the way orthodontics is practiced in the United States and around the world. Most patients can have their braces removed in six months or less with the Rapid Braces treatment. Dr. Georgaklis’ Brookline, MA dentistry office has a track record of treating 90% of his patients in just six months. The rapid braces treatment paired with clear braces means that your procedure will be as discrete as it can possibly be.
How do clear braces work?
Clear braces work in the same manner as traditional metal braces do to straighten teeth. Each tooth is fitted with a bracket in metal braces. A metal wire ties all of the brackets together after an elastic ligature (very small rubber band) is wrapped around each one. The archwire is held in place on each bracket by the elastic. The cross wire is tightened or modified at each cosmetic orthodontist appointment, putting gentle pressure on the brackets and gradually moving your teeth into the desired position. Clear braces are great for adults who want an alternative to traditional metal brackets, but teenagers can get clear braces as well.
What is the expected cost of clear braces?
Despite the fact that the procedure of straightening teeth is the same, the cost difference between clear braces and standard metal braces can be different. The cost is determined by your dental insurance and the circumstances of your case. When you come in for your cosmetic orthodontic consultation, we’ll assess your case, go through your treatment options, and give you an estimate of how much each option will cost. We’ll work with you every step of the way to make sure you’re happy with the cosmetic orthodontic treatment you’ve selected and the financial commitment that comes with it.
