The dangers of do-it-yourself braces
By Kellyn Hodges on August 17, 2015
While 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.
