Dr. Adams was recently interviewed by the Vancouver Sun and CTV news regarding a troubling trend in DIY braces. A current rise in teens trying to straighten their teeth with homemade devices has orthodontists concerned. Trying to straighten teeth without professional treatment can lead to losing teeth, damaged gums and even losing bone. Seeing an orthodontist does not require a referral and payment options are offered by many offices such as ours. If you have friends or family with questions about orthodontic treatment, please have them give us a call and Dr. Adams would be happy to provide a free consultation.
