DIY Orthodontics – More Dangerous Than You Think

shutterstock_237514222If you are an adult dental patient with crooked teeth or a misaligned bite it may seem like all of the methods for correcting your smile are incredibly costly.  However, the answer to your orthodontic needs should be to seek financial arrangements with our office or through vendors such as CareCredit.

New products on the market now allow customers to take impressions of their crooked teeth at home and then send away for mail order aligner trays. These products attempt to function in a similar way as Invisalign clear aligner trays – without the visits to the orthodontist’s office. These products are marketed as money and time savers by cutting out the safety and oversight of a real orthodontist.

Orthodontics should only be performed by specially trained dentists. Without proper management, DIY orthodontics can do more harm than good.  For example, orthodontic treatment can perpetuate gum disease and when unmanaged treatment can do permanent damage to your smile.  Additionally, orthodontic treatment may not be effective for every patient – so at home kits may be a waste of money.

If you are ready to invest in the future of your smile, in a healthy way – contact our office to learn more about braces or Invisalign today.
