It is never too late to straighten your smile.
Crooked, misaligned teeth cause more than just cosmetic issues within your smile. In addition, they also put your smile at higher risk for gum disease, tooth decay, TMJ disorders, and other dental damages. Crooked, misaligned teeth create hard-to-reach areas within your smile. These areas can be difficult to keep clean and clear from food residue or bacteria.
This will cause plaque and tartar to build up, leading to decay, disease, and even bone loss. Additionally, crooked teeth can lead to issues with your bite. Malocclusion then leads to painful TMJ problems.
If you have crooked, misaligned teeth, Premier Dentistry offers treatment to help you straighten your smile. We utilize Invisalign® clear aligners to assist our patients in achieving their dream smiles without the use of traditional braces.
Treatment for Crooked Teeth in Chicago, IL
Dr. Nechama Brand and Dr. Abraham Stein are your experienced cosmetic dentists in Chicago, IL. They are proud to offer our patients Invisalign as an alternative to traditional orthodontic solutions.
Invisalign utilizes a clear aligner system, similar to retainers, which apply pressure to your teeth. This will slowly shift the teeth into a straighter position over time. You will switch out your clear aligners every week or two and wear them for at least 22 hours a day. Many patients are excited about the opportunity to straighten their smiles with Invisalign because of the many benefits that it offers compared to traditional solutions.
Some of the benefits include:
- Discreet treatment
- Does not require the use of metallic hardware
- There are no dietary restrictions
- No additional oral hygiene hazards
- Improved aesthetics
- Less time spent in the dental chair
Unfortunately, not all patients are good candidates for Invisalign treatment. There are some orthodontic concerns that will require the use of traditional orthodontics.
If you are considering Invisalign treatment, schedule your initial consultation with our best Chicago dentists. We will evaluate the health of your teeth, gums, and jawbone to ensure that this treatment plan will meet your needs. Invisalign has made orthodontics more accommodating than ever before.
Why straighten crooked teeth?
In addition to the increased risks of dental health concerns, crooked teeth impact the functionality of your smile. Many patients with unresolved crooked teeth will eventually develop jaw pain or TMJ disorders. This occurs when your crooked teeth begin to impact your mouth’s ability to effectively perform daily tasks like chewing and speaking.
Because of the added pressure points that crooked teeth create, it compromises other dental structures. Our office also offers TMJ treatment options for patients experiencing chronic jaw pain. Often, we will suggest straightening crooked teeth to relieve some of the pressure on your dental structures.
