What about “Do it Yourself/At Home” treatment?
It goes without saying that Dr. Gilreath does not recommend ANY products on the market designed to straighten your teeth at home without oversight from a dental professional. There are many “At Home” products on the market but these can be extremely harmful. It is impossible for them to do any corrections except for the very most basic corrections. The potential for damage to your teeth and bite is significant.he internet is full of people talking about the major issues caused by doing this. There have been many cases in which people doing home treatment lost teeth, killed the nerve in some teeth, made their bite worse, got “TMJ” issues etc. We don’t think it’s worth getting into these troubles, just to save a few hundred dollars! Dr. Gilreath routinely has patients come to him who have done this and has to help them correct their teeth and bite.
DON’T DO IT!!!!! Instead, talk to Dr. Gilreath about his Platinum Level Invisalign services. You’ll be glad you did!
