At the office of Rekha Gehani, DDS, we’re very happy to make Invisalign braces available as the alternative to traditional metal braces, giving you straightening power equal to or better than them, but without the negative aspects.
With metal braces, you wear just a single set and adjustments are made throughout treatment. With our Elmhurst braces, though, you’ll wear a different set every two weeks. Each set serves its own unique role in the overall process. They’re made here at our office instead of at a dental lab. Advanced digital photography replaces messy impressions, and then 3D computer software is used to design the braces, or aligners. Finally, state-of-the-art machinery mills the aligners out of clear plastic for ultimate comfort. Better still, our Elmhurst braces are not detectable to the eye. The only ones who know that you’re having orthodontic care are those you decide to tell. Otherwise, it’s your secret. Unlike with metal braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. Take them out when it’s time to eat. As a result, there are no food restrictions. Take them out to brush and floss, leaving nothing in the way of thorough oral hygiene. Beyond those exceptions, they stay in all day and all night. For most patients, the average number of total aligners for full treatment will be between 18 and 30, with treatment time somewhere from 9 to 15 months. If you qualify for wearing metal braces, then chances are that you are also a good candidate for Invisalign, but come in for an examination and consultation to find out for certain.
It’s reassuring to know that with our Elmhurst braces, you can have your teeth more properly aligned simply, easily, and comfortably; and maybe best of all: anonymously. Now is the perfect time to reach out to us so that we can schedule your visit.
