Have you been regretting the fact that you never had braces as a child? If so, you may be happy to learn that you can still have your teeth straightened, even as an adult. In fact today, many adults are choosing to get their teeth straightened using the Invisalign tooth straightening system. At our practice, we are very happy that our orthodontist, Dr. Rekha C. Gehani, is an Invisalign provider in Jackson Heights.
Our orthodontic practice is Rekha Gehani, DDS. We are happy to be able to treat both children and adults. Many adults prefer to get Invisalign invisible braces because they can have their teeth straightened discreetly, without others even knowing that they are receiving orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is actually a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn for most of the day. Each patient receives anywhere between approximately 20 to 35 aligners for their complete treatment. Each aligner is worn for two weeks during which time the teeth are gently moved into place. The aligner system is completely comfortable except you may feel slight pressure for several days each time you move on to a new aligner. However that slight pressure shows you that the system is working, and that you are getting closer every day to the smile you have always dreamed of. Our Invisalign provider in Jackson Heights will work with you every step of the way to make sure everything is proceeding as planned.
Patients also enjoy using Invisalign because they are able to eat anything they want during the entire treatment process. This is because the plastic aligners are removed for eating. Patients also are able to easily keep their teeth cleaned with regular brushing and flossing during the entire treatment period. This means that your teeth will be as white and as beautiful at the end of treatment as they were when you started. Our patients who use Invisalign are able to attend work and social situations in total confidence, knowing that people will not notice that they are wearing the Invisalign aligner. Unfortunately not all smile situations are right for treatment by Invisalign. At a consultation with our Invisalign provider in Jackson Heights you will be able to find out whether or not you are good candidate for this treatment.
