You’ve likely seen advertisements on Instagram, Facebook, and television for at-home teeth straightening kits that resemble Invisalign, also known as “clear braces“. They’re promoted as super easy, affordable, and you don’t even have to leave your home for any appointments. What could go wrong, right?
Well, a LOT can go wrong!
There is nothing “simple” about moving your teeth around. When your teeth are straightening, your bones are moving. This process requires x-rays, professional equipment, and a dentist or orthodontist with extensive training. There is so much more to it than taking a quick mold of your teeth in your kitchen. Plus, if your teeth may require wire braces if they are too crooked. Not everyone is a candidate for aligners.
You also need regular checkups to make sure everything is on track and moving into the correct position. And if something doesn’t feel right, who would you talk to? You can’t go to your dentist, because they would tell you that you shouldn’t be using those aligners and that you should get Invisalign instead.
You risk ending up with a worse situation than you started with, that will can end up costing you a lot more to fix in the long run.
When they say “you get what you pay for”, you really do! It’s not worth the risk!
