I’m all for saving a bit of money with DIY projects but there are some things you call in the professionals for. For instance…braces. Yes, braces are expensive but making your own at home is just plain crazy. People are doing just that and posting how to videos on YouTube.
Orthodontists are warning parents and patients of the dangers and permanent damage that can come from it. If you don’t believe people are actually attempting it check out this stat…The American Association of Orthodontists says 13% of its member orthodontists have seen patients who have attempted DIY teeth straightening.
People are using rubber bands, dental floss, fishing line, and believe it or not paper clips to get straight teeth. Remember that disclaimer “Don’t try this at home”? That should apply here.
