Don’t Let DIY Braces Ruin Your Smile – Choose a Better Option

You may have seen the YouTube videos. Someone on the internet may have told you it works. You may be thinking of trying it yourself. But we’re talking about your teeth – teeth you don’t want to lose. And possibly losing teeth is just one of the very real dangers of do-it-yourself braces. Don’t ruin your smile with DIY braces. Let a qualified orthodontist straighten your teeth. Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics can help you get a beautiful smile, worry-free.

Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics offers a variety of effective treatment options for your orthodontic needs. DIY braces are imprecise and unsafe. Some better options to straighten your teeth, offered at our offices, are:

  • Traditional Braces -- time-tested and proven effective for patients of all ages. Brackets are affixed to the surface of each tooth. You can choose from silver, clear or enamel-colored brackets for your braces. Our traditional braces are more comfortable and attractive than ever. 
  • Incognito Lingual Braces – work like traditional braces, but are placed on the backside of the teeth, so you don’t look like you have braces while still getting all of their teeth-straightening benefits.
  • Invisalign – clear aligners that can be removed when you eat, and when you brush and floss your teeth. These aligners allow for comfortable and easy orthodontic treatment. 

Your teeth should be aesthetically pleasing and functional. DIY braces cause your teeth to move too quickly, damaging them in the process. This damage could lead to tooth loss. And the rubber bands used for DIY braces are not meant to be used on teeth or in the mouth. Straightening teeth is just one aspect of orthodontic care – the integrity of the tooth and the patient’s overall oral health must be maintained throughout treatment. Proper orthodontic treatment is the best way to get straight teeth. The customized, efficient treatment options we offer at Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics have helped many former patients, take a look at our patient testimonials.

Don’t put the care of your smile in the hands of anyone but a professional. Orthodontic treatment properly guides movement of teeth. DIY braces just can’t do this.

Do it yourself braces are:

  • Not safe for teeth
  • Not hygienic
  • Not efficient
  • Not monitored by a professional

DIY braces are simply not a good idea! Orthodontic treatment at the Miami Beach, Brickell, and Weston offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics is the best choice if you want a straight, healthy smile. Contact us today for an appointment, and let us help you achieve your best smile!
