Dental Myth Busting for Chris | Dente Complete Dentistry

Dental Myth Busting for Chris

One of my patients asked me to write about one of dentistry’s biggest myths. This one goes out to you, Chris.

The biggest dental myth is that wisdom teeth cause the lower front teeth to crowd. This is completely FALSE!!!

Many people believe that the reason why their lower front teeth are crowded, is because the wisdom teeth are growing in crooked. That these crooked teeth are pushing on all the teeth in front of them and causing the lower front teeth to overlap.

This teeth crowding phenomenon, can still happen, even when the wisdom teeth are not present. Our teeth are always moving and shifting. Actually our entire bodies are constantly changing. Oh, you should have seen me 20 years ago. I was HOT.

We know now that if you do not want your teeth to shift, you must wear a retainer – FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!

Otherwise your teeth will move.

So, wisdom teeth have gotten a bad rap for causing teeth crowding. And now I am setting the record straight.

If there are any specific topics that you want me to cover, just reply to this email. It goes directly to my personal email.

Floss like a madman! Emilio “Myth Buster” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
