According to Inside Edition, one of the newest dental trends is “do-it-yourself dentistry.” There are all sorts of tutorials popping up around the Web on how to perform dental procedures by yourself in the comfort of your own home.
Think this is an excellent idea? Think again.
Dr. DeWayne McCamish of the American Association of Orthodontists told CBS this is a very bad idea. “I have seen more than one instance where harm has been done. I can assure you that with the internet and the availability of information that’s out there for a lot of consumers, that there’s going to be more occurring.”
Why is it that people are deciding to take matters into their own hands? It’s quite simple. Dentistry is expensive.
