It gained popularity through YouTube because people are recording on how easy the procedure is and for many viewers, it's like a dream come true but they didn't ask experts if this will harm them or not.

Juan Rendon of Jefferson Dental Clinics told Refinery29 that "It seems very attractive that you could possibly move your own teeth, but when you move a tooth, the color of the tooth might change because you are damaging the blood supply,"

"You're also going to have problems with your gums. When the gums are subject to pressure, the blood supply is cut [off], which changes the shape of the gums and can cause severe inflammation and infection."

With the effects stated above, the practice of these DIY cheap braces 'gap bands' can lead to bone loss, root damage and can even result where your teeth will simply fall out.

But the warnings of the experts isn't enough because a number of tutorials claimed that the DIY braces they tried did, in fact, close their gaps.

A woman from the Washington named Jamila Garza documented on how she closed a gap in her front teeth within 44 days with just a pack of $5 elastic bands and even told the reporters that she had gone to the dentist to check on her teeth and the doctor told her that her teeth 'look really healthy'.

But the dentists quickly explained that despite the appearance of success, the risks simply aren't worth taking.

Well, it is true that it has a success rate but did you think about when it fails? What would you do then? When it fails it will cost you much more money as well as making your condition much worse and as the saying goes 'think before you do something'.
