Do Not Fall Victim to "Fake Braces" Both Online / Offline.
We have seen the recent trend of Malaysian teens buying into "Fake Braces" to "fit in". In our point of view, those do-it-yourself (DIY) braces that you can buy online are a waste of your money & time. Worst-case scenario, you will be jeopardizing your health for nothing in return.
DIY braces that are bought online or offline have NOT been clinically proven; have NOT been tested; and worst of all, are NOT sterile. They are manufactured and sold for the one sole purpose: PROFIT. Even though some of them claim that they are strictly "for show" only, they are still applying pressure on your teeth one way or the other; which will eventually lead to gum problems, dental decay, or worst of all, loose teeth.
In a nutshell, do NOT try to put on braces yourself!
