From Crooked to Straight | Dente Complete Dentistry

From Crooked to Straight

Just yesterday I had a friend here at the office.

She has been wanting to straighten her front teeth and has been struggling with getting started.

She is one of the many consumers that has been bombarded with the advertisement to do it yourself, “Teeth straightening.”

There are several companies doing this, but the most famous brand is Smile Direct.

The product basically sends you all the material you need to take your own impressions and provide an accurate bite. They promise to have an easy, do-it-yourself straightening system. And Voila! Bam! Presto!

Easy…Piece of Cake.

Well…Nope….Not so much.

I have been practicing dentistry for over 20 years and I still have days where I don’t get accurate impressions and bites. It’s not as easy as it looks and if you don’t know what you’re looking for, huge problems can occur. Possibly even cause teeth to move into an improper position or cause major bite issues.This is why I can’t recommend any do it yourself teeth straightening. Moving teeth without the supervision of a trained professional, can cause irreversible damage to the teeth and gums.

Every patient needs to have a trained professional at their side, in order to see if the teeth moving system is actually working and not causing harm.

This could only be done in person.

Maybe in the future this could be done virtually but as of today, technology is not there yet.

If you are wanting to straighten your teeth and are interested to get a plan, please call 773-292-1911.

Floss Like A Madman!Emilio “Straight Talk” 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.”
