Whether you’re an adolescent or an adult, everyone can benefit from a straight and white smile. During your first orthodontic consultation with Rekha Gehani, DDS, we will discuss all possible treatment options, from traditional metal braces to Invisalign clear braces. By performing a thorough Woodside orthodontic examination, Dr. Gehani will be able to determine the timing and intensity of your orthodontic treatment. Once a detailed treatment plan has been outlined and discussed in detail, our office will need a complete diagnostic record of your teeth. This includes impressions of your teeth for study models, digital photos of the face and teeth, as well as dental x-rays. All of this information will be used to customize your treatment plan and track your progress.
Interceptive Orthodontics with Dr. Rekha Gehani uses an expander or partial braces in patients between the ages of six and ten before all permanent teeth have erupted. This treatment is recommended to create more room for developing and growing teeth, as well as to correct crossbites, overbites, underbites, or harmful oral habits. Interceptive orthodontics can prevent the need for tooth extractions later on. Another benefit to visiting Dr. Gehani for early orthodontic treatment is that she can guide the growth of the jaw and incoming permanent teeth. Early treatment can also avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions, reduce the likelihood of impacted teeth and eliminate abnormal speech problems.
