When most patients decide to straighten their teeth, they focus on the aesthetic aspects. Everyone wants an even and well-balanced smile. However, there are many reasons for straightening your teeth. Dr. Parsa Zadeh, a leading cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills, can help you achieve a straight smile.
Uneven teeth can lead to problems with the bite. Ideally, the teeth should fit together perfectly. However, when the teeth are uneven, they cannot fit together well. This throws the bite off and causes tension in the jaw and even leads to discomfort and pain. Problems with the bite can also lead to uneven wear on the teeth, leaving them vulnerable to decay and breakage. In addition, when the bite is not balanced, your skin may sag or become wrinkled around the mouth, aging you prematurely.
It is also important to straighten your teeth to avoid problems with periodontal disease and tooth decay. When the teeth are overcrowded or crooked, brushing and flossing become more difficult. Bacteria and food particles can get trapped in these hard to reach places, increasing the risk of developing cavities and periodontal disease.
If your teeth are not straight, Dr. Zadeh can help. Dr. Zadeh is a leading Beverly Hills Invisalign provider. He can fit you with a custom set of Invisalign aligners. These aligners fit over your teeth and slowly guide the teeth into place. In as little as one year, you can enjoy a brand new, even smile.
