The Invisalign orthodontic system offered Rekha Gehani, DDS straightens your teeth without unsightly and uncomfortable wires and brackets. Instead, through the use of a series of transparent, custom-made, and removable appliances called aligners, you can correct various orthodontic problems without anyone being able to tell! Invisalign is traditionally used on adults who will not wear braces because they feel it looks unprofessionals. However, new advances in the Invisalign system have Invisalign Teen, a new orthodontic treatment specially designed for use by adolescents. The ideal age for receiving Elmhurst orthodontic treatment is between the ages of twelve and fifteen. Commonly, by age twelve, most permanent teeth have erupted and are in place within the mouth, revealing misaligned teeth, crooked teeth, gaps, or poorly aligned bites. At this age, these orthodontic problems are not only easier to detect, but easier to treat. If you notice these problems in your child’s teeth, it’s important to bring them to Rekha Gehani, DDS for a consultation, as these orthodontic problems will hardly ever correct themselves without intervention.
Before Invisalign, children used to dread visiting the orthodontist! But with this amazing new orthodontic treatment, Invisalign for teens can make straightening your teeth easy and stress-free. The Invisalign System is unique because it combines 3-D computer graphics with the science of orthodontics. Much like traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps, making progress over a period of two years. Your monthly aligners are specifically adjusted and produced to fit your mouth at each stage of treatment, from misaligned and crooked teeth to a perfectly straight smile. Your first visit with our Elmhurst orthodontists will involve a thorough consultation and examination to determine if Invisalign is right for you or your child. Precise measurements will be taken in order to manufacture your calibrated aligners. Depending on the severity of your orthodontic problems, treatment may be from 1 to 2 years. In no time at all, you’ll be proud of your smile!
