Young people are trying DIY Braces.... Bad Idea.


A new online trend could be detrimental to your teeth. DIY braces have become something to worry about. There are videos of kids making their own orthodontia. The children use everything from rubber bands to fishing wire as teeth-straightening devices.

Dentists are warning that using these items can immediately introduce bacteria into the gums. One dentist said rubber bands could "squeeze the tooth" right out of the jaw.   

The bottom line - don't take dental advice from someone in elementary school. Have you seen these videos? Check out a news story about it below!
