Orthodontic works is necessary when your teeth are crooked or your jaws are not aligned properly. You may not be happy with what you see when you look at your teeth in the mirror, but in addition to cosmetic reasons, you may experience discomfort and be more prone to tooth decay and gum disease if your teeth are more difficult to floss between. At Rekha Gehani, DDS, we understand that what may be holding you back is the thought of wearing traditional braces. Metal and wire frames and brackets not only affect how you look, but they can dig into your gums and lead to pain, particularly in the early going. Once upon a time, you would simply have to put up with it in order to gain the advantages of straighter teeth and well-aligned jaws. But with our Elmhurst Invisalign, you can retain all of the benefits while eliminating the drawbacks of traditional metal braces.
Invisalign is a system of clear, plastic aligners that do the same job as braces. You won’t have to feel self-conscious about wearing your aligner, because no one else will have to know. That means no intrusive questions from people whose intentions are good, but whose nosiness can be annoying. Using modern 3-D technology, each aligner is made right here in our office using a state-of-the-art computer that creates our Elmhurst Invisalign to precision. You will wear as few as 12 and as many as 48 aligners during the process, with each one designed to fulfill a very specific role in the overall strategy. Each one is worn for about two weeks before giving way to the next in the series.
Our Elmhurst Invisalign is comfortable to wear. Its plastic design ensures that. You keep your aligner in all day and all night, even while you sleep, taking it out only to brush, floss, and eat. As a result, you won’t have to adhere to any of the food restrictions that are associated with metal braces. Nothing can get stuck in them. Of course, you will need to maintain the self-discipline to keep it in when you should. As a safe, effective, and reasonably-priced option, you can’t beat our invisible braces.
