AS PARENTS, WE ARE often impressed by the ingenuity of our tweens and teens, but not every idea they come up with is a good one. One of the more alarming new trends that’s been popping up lately is do-it-yourself braces.
Quite a few teenagers have been posting videos demonstrating to their peers how to make their own braces at home as a cheap alternative to braces. While we hope these teens’ passion for straight teeth takes them into the field of orthodontics someday, there are many reasons why it’s not a good idea for anyone without the right training and experience to attempt to straighten crooked teeth.
