Here at the office of expert orthodontist Dr. Rekha Gehani, the top Elmhurst orthodontist, we love to show patients of all ages just how beautiful their smiles can be. One age group that Dr. Gehani specializes in working with is teenagers. Teenagers can be reluctant to get the orthodontic treatments they need, even though they are at an age when orthodontic work can make a huge difference in the look and health of their smiles. Many teens do not want to be forced to wear bulky, uncomfortable metal braces and retainers for years at a time. Dr. Gehani has worked with many teens, and is happy to offer them alternative solutions that are more accommodating to their wants and needs. Invisalign is an alternative option that our Elmhurst orthodontist has provided for many teenagers and adults. Instead of metal wires and brackets, Invisalign uses clear, customized aligners. The aligners come in sets. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks at a time. After each two weeks, you return to our Elmhurst orthodontist to have the aligners switched out for the next set in your treatment plan. With each set, you move closer and closer to your smile goals. Some examples of the issues that Invisalign can correct include: overlapping teeth, overcrowded teeth, gaps between teeth, misaligned bites like underbites and overbites, and more.
If you would like to learn more about Invisalign and all of the other many services that our Elmhurst orthodontist has to offer, we highly recommend that you pay a visit to Dr. Rekha Gehani’s main website to browse through some additional, detailed information.
