The dangers of do-it-yourself braces

By Kellyn Hodges on August 17, 2015

DIY - Braces Philadelphia PAWhile there are many trends in the do-it-yourself world, DIY braces may be one of the most dangerous. Guided by YouTube videos, young people are using at home techniques and elastics to straighten their teeth. This can be very dangerous, permanently damaging underlying bone, gums, and teeth in the process. Even the American Association of Orthodontics issued an alert in September 2014 cautioning individuals against this practice.

At Kellyn Hodges Orthodontics, we can help you get the smile you've always wanted at a price that fits your budget. With a variety of treatment and payment options, as well as many insurance plans accepted, we are confident there is an option for everyone to have a beautiful and healthy smile.
