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.

Invisalign Teen Elmhurst

The Invisalign orthodontic system offered Rekha Gehani, DDS straightens your teeth without unsightly and uncomfortable wires and brackets. Instead, through the use of a series of transparent, custom-made, and removable appliances called aligners, you can correct various orthodontic problems without anyone being able to tell! Invisalign is traditionally used on adults who will not wear braces because they feel it looks unprofessionals. However, new advances in the Invisalign system have Invisalign Teen, a new orthodontic treatment specially designed for use by adolescents. The ideal age for receiving Elmhurst orthodontic treatment is between the ages of twelve and fifteen. Commonly, by age twelve, most permanent teeth have erupted and are in place within the mouth, revealing misaligned teeth, crooked teeth, gaps, or poorly aligned bites. At this age, these orthodontic problems are not only easier to detect, but easier to treat. If you notice these problems in your child’s teeth, it’s important to bring them to Rekha Gehani, DDS for a consultation, as these orthodontic problems will hardly ever correct themselves without intervention.

Before Invisalign, children used to dread visiting the orthodontist! But with this amazing new orthodontic treatment, Invisalign for teens can make straightening your teeth easy and stress-free. The Invisalign System is unique because it combines 3-D computer graphics with the science of orthodontics. Much like traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps, making progress over a period of two years. Your monthly aligners are specifically adjusted and produced to fit your mouth at each stage of treatment, from misaligned and crooked teeth to a perfectly straight smile. Your first visit with our Elmhurst orthodontists will involve a thorough consultation and examination to determine if Invisalign is right for you or your child. Precise measurements will be taken in order to manufacture your calibrated aligners. Depending on the severity of your orthodontic problems, treatment may be from 1 to 2 years. In no time at all, you’ll be proud of your smile!
