Need a Straighter Smile? Hire a Professional
- Posted on: Feb 28 2015
It is only natural to seek the most affordable option when spending thousands of dollars on things like orthodontic treatment. However, safety should also be a top priority when caring for the appearance and function of your smile.
There is a developing trend of mail-order orthodontic care that exchanges homemade dental impressions with clear plastic aligner trays. The practice of orthodontics is not performed by every dentist, so as a patient why would you try to manage your own care at home? Failing to properly involve a trained orthodontist, in person, could lead to costly damage and greater expense over time. Without the proper x-rays and dental screenings along the way, you risk the health of your smile.
Orthodontic care perpetuates gum disease, which has costly consequences. Additionally, when moving teeth in your mouth it is important to carefully monitor the movement of your roots and other nearby tooth structures – something that cannot be safely done by untrained patients at home.
