Tooth straightening and why you shouldn’t do it at home

Do you have crooked teeth? It’s important that you get treatment from a dentist or orthodontist, and avoid home treatments.

Key takeaways:

– Don’t try to straighten their teeth at home using strings, scissors, rubber bands and clips.

– Most people don’t understand that aligning involves the bone dissolving and rebuilding in a new position.

– Dentists discourage patients from using DIY videos to straighten their teeth as the damage is usually irreversible.

Avoid picking on crooked teeth and trying to straighten yourself. Visit the dentist for a referral to the nearest orthodontist.
