Straightening Your Teeth at Home – Why it’s Dangerous

For many people, teeth that are crooked, gapped, or crowded are a source of low self-esteem. After all, your smile and your teeth are your billboards.

With the influx of products online today, even products that claim to safely straighten your smile, it can be tempting to take matters into your own hands. However, choosing to straighten your teeth at home can be unsafe and ineffective. Keep reading for more.

At-home teeth whitening dangers

Teeth straightening kits that work at home can be tempting, however, it’s important to know that these kits aren’t always what they’re cracked up to be.

At-home kits are sent to customers’ homes where they make a mold of their teeth. They then submit the mold to the online company and a series of teeth aligners are mailed out to the customer over time.

The caveat? They miss visits to the dentist, who would oversee the whole treatment process.

The DIY version of braces or clear aligners may be cheaper, but many customers of this fad claim that they have caused irreparable damage to teeth, with some even saying jaw issues and issues with the teeth roots have occurred.
