Fake Braces Can Cause Permanent Damage On Your Health

By: Smileway Dental

Many people aspire to have straight, evenly-aligned teeth. Early on, our parents will take us to the dentist so that he or she may examine and evaluate the state of our teeth and determine whether or not braces need be placed soon.

The use of braces is a procedure intended to help you with dental issues like crooked teeth, crowding, and a misaligned bite (underbite or overbite). This treatment should be administered by a trained, board-certified orthodontist. Nowadays, wearing what are known as FAKE BRACES or DIY BRACES is popular among youngsters and even adults. A piece of wire and brackets are used to create fake braces, which are simply aesthetic appliances. After being moulded to the exterior shape of the teeth, the wire is glued to the teeth. They serve no purpose other than as decoration.

Wearing these artificial braces comes with hazards, such as:
A. Loss of teeth
B. Dental deterioration caused by the glue used
C. Mouth infections and sores
D. Choking while sleeping on brackets because they are improperly positioned
E. Bad breath
F. The teeth shifting and becoming more crooked as a result
G. Damage to gums

Tell them how dangerous and detrimental they are if you know anyone who is doing this. Only licenced dentists or orthodontists should be consulted to perform these specialized procedures, such as the licenced dentists at SMILEWAY DENTAL CLINIC. In Smileway Dental Clinic USJ and Smileway Dental Clinic Setapak, we take care of your smile because we believe in “Creating Smiles That Matters” in your life. To know more about braces, do not hesitate to contact us and get an appointment for a consultation.

After 25 years of trying to find a good dentist in KL have finally found one that is well equiped, knowledgable, skilled and good value. Lovely staff. The only downside is the parking but if you park ay MainPlace and walk across then it’s easy. Update 2022…I am still using this excellent dentist as they remain the best I have experienced over the past 26 years… Dentists, nurses, reception and equipment all top notch… Highly recommended.
