What Are The Disadvantages Of DIY Clear Aligners?

SmileDirectClub, Byte, and Candid Co. claim a faster, less complicated, and less expensive alternative to an orthodontist. Get your teeth scanned, create a mold, and have all clear aligners sent to you.

DIY aligner users run the danger of straightening their teeth even more by forgoing the regular supervision and skilled knowledge of an orthodontist. One mail-order patient was unable to chew her meal and, following treatment, was probably going to lose her front teeth.

Users of DIY aligners wonder whether it is safe to shift a tooth or how healthy their teeth are. Orthodontists have observed patients using DIY aligners while having tooth decay or gum disease, proving they would not benefit from aligners. There are no x-rays or examinations. Gums, teeth, and bones supporting them may sustain long-term harm.

Too much tooth movement, according to one orthodontist, could even force them to shift back into their original locations. For the sake of convenience and decreased costs, DIY brace users might be irreversibly endangering their smiles. Regular checkups are important during orthodontic treatment to monitor the teeth’s movement and, if necessary, modify the course of action. 

Without supervision, DIY aligner users have no way to modify their aligners should the course of treatment. Depending on a patient’s demands, aligners might not be the best option. Someone’s teeth might respond to another orthodontic procedure. There is no way to tell unless a specialist is constantly monitoring the provided treatment.

Teeth are sensitive and priceless tools. When attempting to improve your smile, there is no replacement for consulting with qualified professionals. They are fully equipped, experienced, and knowledgeable to properly align your teeth. Therefore, the best option is still going to a licensed orthodontist who will treat your teeth with the care and attention they require rather than spending a thousand dollars on a DIY clear aligner. The cost of corrective retreatment will be higher if DIY clear aligners break your teeth, and occasionally the damage is irreversible. You might have to spend a bit more money if you visit an orthodontist, but at least you’ll leave with the smile you’ve always wanted and no regrets.

Remarkable Smiles offers price matching for orthodontic services in situations that are comparable. Visit us right away!

You're All Awesome!!
