Orthodontists everywhere have a message for people that we can't believe they even have to say, trying your own makeshift braces at home is dangerous!
The American Association of Orthodontists reported that they have been seeing an influx of people causing major damage by trying to do their braces themselves.
The common method(s) people have been choosing are rubber bands, floss, fishing line, paper clips, biting on pencils, makeshift retainers, and pushing their teeth with fingers.
Aside from the obvious reasons it's dangerous, the rubber bands can get lost in the gums, cause gum infections, or lead to bone structure problems.
Of course, like most stupidity, they credit the rise partly to social media and YouTube tutorials on how to straighten your teeth on your own.
So take their advice and let us warn you too, don't try to fix your teeth on your own. No matter how desperate you are or how much your teeth look like Justin's, just don't!
