Do It Yourself (DIY) Braces: Are They Safe?

DIY braces are becoming popular on the Internet. But are they safe and effective, or is this one fad you should ignore?

With the average cost of Invisalign and braces topping the $1,000 mark, many people are looking for a cheaper way to get a straight, beautiful smile. However, when it comes to orthodontics, the old adage is true: you get what you pay for.

Risks of DIY Braces

To help you make an informed decision, we’ve compiled some key hazards of homemade braces. These include, but are not limited to:

  1. Irreparable damage to your teeth, gums, and jaw
  2. Infection due to unsterilized appliances in your mouth
  3. Pain, early wear of the tooth enamel, and tooth loss
  4. Exacerbated orthodontic issues
  5. Increased costs to repair damage
