Dentists Warn About New Videos on DIY Braces

August 21, 2015 by Dr. Emanuel Invisalign


Everyone loves a good DIY project, especially when it saves us some money and we get to have some fun in the process but DIY braces may cause more harm than good according to dentists. According to a recent Newschannel 3 report there have been numerous videos surfacing online of teens who are posting DIY videos on making braces from elastic hair bands. Even though this DIY trick is cheap it can also cause more harm than good as it will move your teeth, but damage can also be done as you have no control over movement and this is meticulously tracked by dentists when proper teeth alignment is done.

At New York Center for Cosmetic Dentistry we have options for any alignment need, from traditional braces to the more popular Invisalign. Contact our offices now and request an appointment and let us create the perfect smile for you.
