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. This is because crooked, misaligned teeth create hard-to-reach areas within your smile that can be difficult to keep clean and clear from food residue or bacteria.
If you have crooked, misaligned teeth, Premier Dentistry can help you straighten your smile. We utilize Invisalign clear braces 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 and encourage them to shift into a straighter position over time. 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
- No metallic hardware
- No dietary restrictions
- No additional oral hygiene hazards
- Improved aesthetics
- Less time spent in the dental chair
Not all patients can be treated with Invisalign. There are some orthodontic concerns that will require the use of traditional orthodontics. If you are interested in finding out if you are a candidate for Invisalign treatment, schedule your initial consultation with our dentists. We will evaluate the health of your teeth, gums, and jawbone to ensure that this treatment plan will meet your needs.
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 created by crooked teeth, your other dental structures are compromised. 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.
