Achieving the smile you want and deserve takes time and an investment of resources such as your time and money. There’s no way to get around the process of the aligned and beautiful smile you want.
However, there are companies and individuals that are trying to fast track the process and even create a new process that is less costly. Broad Street Braces would like to remind you that when you try to avoid the proper tooth adjustment process it could cost you a great deal of unexpected trouble.
There are many YouTube videos on the web describing how to adjust your teeth using rubber bands. Please do not attempt this process at home. The health of your teeth and gums could be greatly altered. The stress and tension put on your teeth and gums could cut off circulation, which could cause a wide range of other dental health issues (including tooth loss) that will cause you a lot of time, money and pain to restore.
There are also companies that claim to be able to give you an at-home kit for your tooth alignment treatment plan. The process is all completed at home. There are a lot of risks associated with this type of alignment plan that could compromise your dental health and the results you are hoping to achieve. Here is a story from WJLA about a “Consumer Alert: Orthodontists issue warning on DIY dental work.”
