At Home Teeth Straightening – Not the Safest Option

HomeTeethStraightening

Orthodontics is an important dental specialty that should only be performed by dentists with additional training. The task of straightening teeth and aligning a patient’s bite should only be performed under the strict supervision of a licensed dental professional. Otherwise you could do real and permanent damage to your jaw, teeth and mouth.

Unfortunately, out of a desire to meet the demand for cheap orthodontic options, one of the newest trends in dental care is do-it-yourself orthodontics. These systems allow customers to take impressions of their crooked teeth at home and then send away for mail order aligner trays. Without the safety of dental oversight.

These products promise effective results at reduced cost. Without proper care management DIY orthodontics can do more harm than good to your mouth. 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 – something that is difficult to determine through self-performed dental molds. X-rays and other professional screenings are absolutely essential to delivering quality dental and orthodontic care.

If you need affordable options to straighten your smile, don’t take matters into your own hands. Contact us for assistance today.
