The use of DIY brace kits has risen in recent years. Often the lure of such kits is to save money, save trips to the clinic, or to try and speed up the process. However, there are real dangers associated with these online kits. Therefore, it is important that people know the facts before making decisions about how to have their teeth straightened.
There are many reasons why DIY brace kits are dangerous. One of the main issues is the lack of professional guidance. A patient who attends an orthodontic dental clinic is under the expertise of dentists and orthodontists that are specially trained to perform these types of treatments. They know which device is the most suitable, can foresee any issues arising, and can monitor the process throughout. People who choose to have DIY braces run the risk of major problems arising due to underlying problems. These problems would certainly be picked up in a professional consultation and this would dictate the kind of treatment prescribed. Things like overbites, underbites, tooth decay, gum disease, weakened enamel, and many more things could affect a teeth straightening procedure. Therefore, it is essential that a trained professional monitors every step of the treatment.
Furthermore, the DIY products being purchased could be of a poor standard and are unlikely to be produced by reputable dentists. A major part of the orthodontic process is regular face to face consultations, which would not happen with DIY kits.
