Modern teeth straightening options for adults in Chicago are as effective as they are discreet

Dr. Theodore M. Siegel, Providing Modern teeth straightening options for adults in Chicago are as effective as they are discreet

Your teeth may need straightening for all sorts of different reasons. Maybe your teeth have been crowded or crooked for as long as you can remember. Perhaps over time extractions have caused shifting. Whatever the case may be, and whatever your age, there are unprecedented options to get you feeling better about how your teeth look. You’ll also feel better in general. When a tooth isn’t properly spaced, it can rub up against other teeth and wear down protective enamel. While kids may still want to distinguish themselves with braces of different colors or shapes, adults generally don’t want their … Continue reading

A Chicago dentist explains the dental implant surgery process

Dental Implant Surgery Chicago

Dental implants are one of the top requested dental procedures to restore a missing tooth, or to help stabilize dentures. Implants restore teeth from the roots to the crown. There are other ways to restore teeth, but the results are not always permanent, and may have other detrimental effects. In the cases of bridges and crowns, the bone mass of the jaw deteriorates because of lack of stimulation from tooth roots. This affects the lines of the face as the bone disappears. The implant itself is a small titanium rod that replaces the tooth root, and serves to transmit the … Continue reading

Chicago residents can use porcelain veneers to improve the appearance of their teeth

Porcelain Veneers can Improve Teeth Appearance Chicago

Veneers, laminates, facings, porcelain laminates, or dental veneers: they all are names for porcelain veneers. They are used when a tooth is cracked, discolored, worn down, chipped, or even to correct small gaps or imperfectly shaped teeth. Veneers are made from very thin sheets of porcelain that match color of the teeth. The material is less than 0.5mm thick – that is about the thickness of a fingernail. It is color matched to look like natural teeth, and is adhered to the fronts of the existing teeth. The procedure to get veneers starts with a consultation. The dentist will determine … Continue reading

Braces: Not Just for Kids Anymore thanks to attractive options

Dr. Theodore M. Siegel, Smiling Woman with silicone trainer. Invisible braces

If you still associate braces with kids, it’s time to adjust your perception The American Association of Orthodontics reports 22 percent of orthodontic patients are at least 18 years old. In 1994, adults accounted for 17 percent of patients with braces. While the number of adults who wear braces grew by 58 percent from 1994 to 2010, the number of kids with braces grew by just 15 percent during the same time. Modern orthodontic treatments are in many respects made for adults. Instead of the metal “brace face” from childhood, adults in need of straightening are becoming acquainted with an … Continue reading

Chicago residents, read about a real tooth vs. an implant tooth

Real teeth vs. implant teeth, which are better? Real teeth, that is, the permanent set of teeth, have been around since the tooth fairy whisked away the final baby tooth and left the last bit of change. Most adults have their permanent set of real teeth, which are strong, resilient, durable, and beautiful. However, they can be subject to disease, accident, and other forms of damage and loss. Dental implants are used to replace those real teeth that have been lost due to those reasons. They are also made to be as close in form and function as possible to … Continue reading

Chicago dentist explains that teeth implants work just like real teeth

A tooth is made of many different parts and the dental implant procedure takes this feature into account to produce the most natural looking and natural functioning tooth replacement option available. Each of your teeth have different functions. For instance, the pointy canine teeth are designed to tear food. The wide molars at the back of the mouth grind food so it can be swallowed and digested properly. The relationship between the teeth, tongue, and lips helps you speak properly, which is why people who lose their teeth may develop a lisp or other problems with how words are pronounced. … Continue reading
