Changes in California’s DIY Orthodontics Trade

Article By Remarkable Smiles Orthodontics.

California Assembly Bill 1519 was signed into law making it clear that the DIY orthodontics industry has some flaws. This came about due to so many people using the DIY websites and this is because this type of braces costs about half of what traditional braces do. At around $3,000, this would seem like a great way to get your teeth fixed. So, what was the problem?

With DIY clear aligners, you really never see an orthodontist in real life. You will probably see a virtual physician at the beginning of your treatment. After that, these websites such as Candid, Byte and SmileDirectClub will send you a series of retainers with instructions about how to utilize them. It’s up to you to follow the instructions and you can only hope that things go well and your teeth eventually get straightened.

Looking for a pretty smile?

Though some people have had good results, others have experienced stressful failures when teeth moved in the wrong direction. Some people reported problems with overbite and underbite, while others found that their teeth moved in absurd directions leaving them with a very troubling smile instead of a beautiful smile.

The new California Assembly Bill 1519 was created to protect consumers and help them think twice about using DIY orthodontics. Patients should see an orthodontist regularly throughout their treatment. That way, any problems can be quickly corrected and you’ll get that perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of.
