When it comes to orthodontic care and treatment, there is more to it than just braces. Often, years of care go into achieving the final result whether it is simply to straighten teeth and improve appearance or to resolve a medical concern posed by crooked teeth or an uneven bite. Many other tools are used in conjunction with braces, and retainers are the most common. Retainers can be used at various stages of care, and they can help your treatment be successful overall. Here with our dentist, Rekha Gehani, DDS, you can get braces as well as Elmhurst dental retainers to improve your smile and dental health over time.
Braces are used for cosmetic and medical reasons, and in many cases they can be used to meet both ends at once. Crooked teeth do not always pose a medical problem, but if a bite is uneven or does not match up properly, action may need to be taken to correct this issue and alleviate any resulting stress that could be affecting the health of your bite and your overall dental health. Here at the offices of Rekha Gehani, DDS, you can get comprehensive orthodontic care no matter what your specific dental needs happen to be. When it comes to Elmhurst dental retainers, retainers can be used to keep teeth in place between treatments or after treatment to ensure that teeth remain in the same place and the work already done is not reversed. Many people need to wear retainers for a period of years after their braces are taken off to ensure that their teeth remain straight and healthy.
It is important that retainers are kept clean and in working order, so if you need a replacement retainer or if you need one repaired, our dentist Rekha Gehani, DDS is here to help. For treatment and care regarding Elmhurst dental retainers, call our offices today.
