Most people would love to have straight, evenly-spaced teeth. For many, Invisalign makes a gorgeous natural smile a reality. There are also important functional reasons to consider treatment. Big Smile Dental in Chicago shares this helpful information.
Each type of tooth plays a vital role in helping you process nutritious foods into digestible bits:
Have you ever had a wheel on your car out of alignment? The tread probably wore unevenly, leaving you thumping along the highway, or stranded with a flat. The relationship of upper and lower teeth is kind of like the tire and the road. When any tooth is crooked, it doesn’t strike its counterpart correctly. That results in unusual wear, and could cause fractures, chips, and breakage. In addition, misalignment reduces chewing efficiency.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses smooth, transparent aligners to gently move crooked teeth into attractive, functional position. Call Big Smile Dental in Chicago at 773-772-8400 to learn more about Invisalign.
