Getting a straighter smile is easier than ever, and there are so many options available to people looking to get orthodontic work. Orthodontic work can be used for cosmetic or medical purposes, and in many cases both seem to be the case. If you are interested in getting straighter teeth, then Rekha Gehani, DDS is the dentist you want to see. Dr. Gehani has been providing the Jackson Heights community in Queens for over 35 years, offering a wide range of services and procedures, including both traditional and clear braces in Elmhurst.
Metal braces are the most common, and often the most versatile, kind of braces out there. They are also often the first thing people think of when they hear “braces”. But braces are much more varied than that, and there are several other options available to people with cosmetic concerns. Metal braces include metal brackets that are affixed to the teeth as well as wires that are threaded through each bracket per row of teeth. Over time, these wires are shortened and adjusted, moving the brackets as well, in order to slowly guide teeth into a straighter formation over time. But there are other kinds of braces out there, too. Clear braces can either mean braces with clear brackets or they can refer to Invisalign braces. Clear braces are similar to traditional braces in that they also have brackets and wires, only the brackets are clear and appear to blend into the teeth. Invisalign braces don’t use brackets or wires at all, and instead use a special plastic that fits over your teeth like a glove or a shell. Rekha Gehani, DDS can provide you with a complete oral examination in order to best determine which method of treatment is right for you, traditional or clear braces in Elmhurst.
