Nationally recognized orthodontist specialist Dr. Jacqueline Fulop-Goodling, D.M.D., P.C. has been featured in WebMD where she discusses at-home teeth straightening.
Dr. Jacquie Smiles as she is known to her patients became a Spokesperson for Invisalign Teen treatment which was featured on the Tyra Bank’s show. She now practices orthodontics in her Midtown Manhattan office and two other locations in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, and Monroe, NY.
WebMD asked Dr. Jacqueline Fulop-Goodling about the safety of DIY teeth straightening instead of going to an orthodontist for professional treatment.
According to Dr. Fulop-Goodling, “There are no safe at-home teeth straightening procedures.”
These “do-it-yourself” methods have caused so much harm to people’s teeth that the American Dental Association issued a policy in 2017 educating patients against the potential damage of unsupervised at-home teeth-straightening.
“The intention behind do-it-yourself teeth straightening is to save money, but it often ends up in disaster,” Fulop-Goodling says.
The American Association of Orthodontists has also noted that DIY teeth-straightening methods can create serious new dental problems involving not only your teeth, but your gums and bones.
