Often your smile is what people see first. A pronounced over-bite or under-bite is easily visible and can make you self-conscious. An uneven bite pattern can cause more than just simple problems. When your bite pattern is off, several things can begin to occur. The Invisalign clear teeth-straightening system can restore a more natural bite pattern and prevent future issues. Contacting Dr. Saleem, an experienced dentist at Hebron Smiles in Carrollton, will allow you to learn more.
Maintaining a proper bite pattern is essential. When your bite pattern is uneven, your teeth may begin to wear differently. That can eventually cause them to break, crack, or become loose. If your teeth don’t come together naturally, the joints in your jaw may become painful and inflamed. That can lead to trouble chewing your food and make it difficult for you to close your mouth correctly.
One of the most widespread causes of poor alignment of your teeth and jawbones is crooked teeth. Another cause is missing one or more teeth. While crooked teeth make it difficult for your bite to align, gaps can cause teeth that were once in alignment to shift out of place. With nothing to fill the gap and hold them in place, your remaining teeth will start to gravitate toward the opening.
Invisalign clear teeth straightening systems offer the same benefits as traditional braces that were used in the past. The difference is the level of convenience clear aligners provide to patients. The hard trays snap on and off your teeth as necessary, allowing you to eat and speak without any hindrance whatsoever. Trays are swapped out every two to three weeks, allowing for a gradual adjustment of your teeth.
