Straightening your teeth without the supervision of a dentist is the current trend in America and it’s on its way to Australia. The practice of sending teeth aligners to people’s homes for unsupervised use is fraught with a multitude of risks. If the teeth are moved too quickly or the patient wears the aligners infrequently, the teeth may be forced to move at a rate that is risky to dental health. The roots of the teeth may become resorbed, causing irreversible damage and the possible loss of teeth. Orthodontic movement of teeth is a precise procedure that must be monitored and controlled by a qualified dentist or orthodontics.
