It is important that smiles are straight and bites meet evenly, and this is more than just a cosmetic concern. Some dental imperfections are completely fine, but others may actually impede on the quality of your overall dental health. When it comes to malocclusions and other similar issues, Rekha Gehani, DDS can help. Our teen orthodontist in Elmhurst can helps teens get the orthodontic care that they require in order to resolve any bite issues that they have while also improving the overall appearance of their smile as well.
When it comes to braces, teenagers are most often pictured. This is because the teenage years are the best years to provide this sort of treatment. Teens have all of their permanent teeth and yet they are still growing. Braces work most optimally during this period of time and can make the most progress in the least amount of time as well. Braces can be prescribed to children for more intensive dental health concerns, and adults can too, though usually the time period for treatment plans tend to be longer since more work needs to be done. Because teens are still growing, it is easier to shape their teeth and their teeth’s supporting bones. In order to accomplish this, our teen orthodontist in Elmhurst Rekha Gehani, DDS can provide teens with braces, retainers, spacers, expanders and other tools used to mold and shape their mouth into a healthier one. A misaligned bite can put significant strain on your teeth and jaw bone, and crooked teeth can be difficult to clean and therefore more prone to plaque buildup and decay. Rekha Gehani, DDS may even be able to provide teens with Invisalign or completely clear braces, but an evaluation will be required before moving forward with any particular orthodontic methods.
If your child is exhibiting signs of a bite problem or has crooked teeth, then it is important that you see an orthodontist in order to get their professional opinion as soon as you can so you know what you need to do next. Our orthodontist in Elmhurst, Rekha Gehani, DDS, can help your child get the orthodontic care and treatment they need in order to have a healthy smile.
