Whenever I hear a patient say that they’ve chipped a front tooth, I’m immediately telling them to close down and looking closely at how their front teeth come together. Why? Because in the vast majority of cases, it’s too heavy a bite in the front that is causing the front teeth to chip.
Just like a sports team will have players with certain roles, teeth have roles as well. The front teeth are great at cutting the food we eat and they are important in speech, but they are not so good at handling the brunt of the biting force in the mouth.
It’s too heavy a bite in the front that is causing the front teeth to chip.
Invisalign is a great way to fix a bite that is too heavy in the front or an edge to edge bite like the bite shown in the picture above. Invisalign clear aligners gradually move your teeth into the correct position, which can help to relieve the pressure on your front teeth and prevent them from chipping in the future.
At Airway Orthodontics, we are treating the bite while at the same time keeping an eye on your airway and optimizing for sleep. We understand that the bite is not only important for the appearance of your teeth, but also for your overall health and well-being.
