This is a worth sharing story of an Overseas Filipina Worker (OFW) who is now suffering from a severe orthodontic problems after using an improvised "Do-it-yourself" (DIY) dental braces.
Do-it-yourself Braces Terrible Orthodontic ExperienceThe story was first introduced on Facebook, circulated claiming that the patient is indeed a Filipina. Tracing however the real dentist (probably a Filipino as well) who shared the story is a little bit difficult. Regardless, the story is really disturbing, proof of photos revealed how serious DIY dental braces negatively affect the dental arrangement.
According to the dentist, the patient arrived at the clinic asking for the price to have 'them' grind.
The dentist asked what exactly the patient wants to be grinded and why? And the patient answered that she wants to get rid of her two frontal teeth which are now squished on outward stretching position.
Wait, grind her teeth?
The dentist however notices that the patient has a super prominent set of teeth and obviously harnessed with dental braces. How did that happened? Who was her previous dentist? Judging the patient's condition, the dentist has something to conclude, a common result of a fake dental treatment conducted by someone who isn't professional on the field of ortho-dentistry.
DIY Braces, Affordable Yet with Painful Side EffectsGiven the dire dental situation of the patient, the doctor made a thorough checked up where he learned that the person who put those brackets, wires, and rubbers was actually not a licensed dentist. Plus, the braces installation procedure only happened at home. The patient keeps on visiting that person for changing rubbers (adjustments).
The Filipino dentist therefore concluded that the person behind this miserable teeth alignment committed medical malpractice and probably offering a DIY braces. The dentist stated such condition is really heartbreaking. To have it fix, they've suggested to remove the current braces and replace it with the exact one for a proper treatment.
Dental braces are meant to fix not to destroy your teeth. I posted this here in my blog to raise an awareness and support real people of orthodontics. Information for people who are planning to have braces as well.
DIY Braces or What?According to the dentist, installing dental braces is not as simple as you have to pick desired colors of rubber to suit your fashion expectations. Before fitting, it needs comprehensive test and analysis. Having cheap DIY braces is not a good option at all because in the end you will be facing issues like tooth extraction and dentures if everything gone wrong.
They are calling to stop patronizing DIY dental braces, seek the professional for proper caring of your tooth. Dentist study a lot to bring you a better smile, not like an anterior, a piano, a rabbit or something worst than that.
If you found people who are malpracticing dental treatment you can immediately report it to any head of dental chapter in your area.
