Time to Chill Out on Chewing Ice
With yet another hot South Florida summer, it is understandable that you probably need something to cool off. You innocently reach for a beverage, drawing the last bit of nourishing liquid out of the straw, and begin to innocently gnaw on some of the remaining ice cubes.
Unfortunately, this seemingly innocent act actually isn’t. Chewing ice can lead to future dental procedures for conditions like worn enamel, as well as chipped teeth.
Crooked Teeth – More Than a Cosmetic Issue
Many patients enter our office, thinking that the primary goal of orthodontic intervention is for correcting cosmetic issues relating to their smile. However, crooked teeth can lead to more severe health issues than an unappealing aesthetic.
Invisalign benefits patients by enabling them to correct misaligned, crooked teeth. This can substantially lower their risk of developing issues like headaches, halitosis, gum disease, tooth decay, and further tooth damage or erosion.
