Don’t Damage Your Teeth with DIY Braces
DIY braces, a growing trend among teens looking for a perfect smile, can have disastrous results. YouTube videos and other online tutorials may make do-it-yourself braces seem like a good idea, but don’t be fooled -- this dental fad can permanently damage teeth and even cause tooth loss. If you are looking for a way to straighten your teeth, DIY braces is not the way to go. A trained orthodontist is the only person you should trust to straighten your teeth. Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics offers a variety of services to safely and effectively align your teeth and give you a beautiful smile.
Misaligned teeth are a common problem and can be a source of embarrassment for teens and adults alike. Some problems that crooked teeth can cause include:
- Impaired speech
- Trouble chewing
- Jaw strain
- Abnormal tooth wear
But the problem of crooked teeth can easily be corrected with proper orthodontic intervention. Dr. Maria Yazji has the advanced orthodontic training and the qualifications you need in a dental health provider. Malocclusion treatment options at the Weston, Brickell, and Miami Beach offices of Dr. Maria Yazji include: Insignia and incognito lingual braces, Invisalign aligners, traditional braces, and more. These options are proven to safely straighten teeth and maintain overall oral health, unlike DIY braces.
Your mouth is unique. The size of your mouth, your bite, and all of your teeth -- crooked or straight -- make up your individual dental imprint. A one-size-fits-all approach just won’t work for you. DIY braces don’t take your specific orthodontic needs into consideration. A trained orthodontist knows teeth must be straightened precisely and safely. If a tooth is moved too quickly, as it is through the use of DIY braces, its root can be damaged and it may even fall out. Crooked teeth are not ideal, but missing teeth are worse! Don’t take the risk of losing any teeth by trying do it yourself braces.
