If you’ve watched TV recently, you’ve seen the ads for DIY braces. They promise the same great results as you would get with Invisalign at half the price. So many people are interested in learning more.

It almost seems too good to be true that you can get Invisalign-type braces on your teeth at such a low price. The whole process seems so easy. And these DIY providers promise you great results. Often whenever something seems too good to be true, that should set off an alarm in our head. Very often it doesn’t though. We’re interested in saving money and getting our teeth straightened for a price that fits in the budget.

The biggest reason why orthodontists are now warning people about these braces is that some users have had very troubling problems with them. One huge issue is that the patient doesn’t get to see an orthodontist on a regular basis. If your teeth are not moving properly in the correct direction, then how will you know? You simply have to trust that these DIY braces are doing what they are supposed to do.

Unfortunately, too many people are reporting that’s their teeth did not move correctly. Once your teeth have moved into crooked or odd positions, it can be very troubling and expensive to repair.

In order to get the best results, patients need to see an orthodontist once every six weeks or so throughout their treatment. Your doctor checks to make sure everything in your mouth is okay and teeth are moving properly.
