William Fay, DDS, helps his patients achieve the straight, healthy smiles of their dreams as an orthodontist in the San Francisco, California, area. To further his skills and keep apprised of new developments in his field, William Fay, DDS, is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists.

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) is the world’s first and largest professional network of orthodontists. Its members are dedicated to advancing the profession as a whole and are constantly improving the state of orthodontic care for patients.

An American college student recently achieved some level of internet fame after showing off his DIY orthodontic solution. The young man 3-D printed his own series of clear aligners and gradually fixed his own teeth for very little cost.

Due to the popularity of his videos, the AAO has issued yet another warning to the public regarding the danger of playing around with orthodontics. Attempting to fix one’s own teeth, whether via 3D printed equipment, bent paperclips, or other amateur methods, comes with serious risks. These DIY methods can cause irreparable damage, often making it impossible for medical professionals to fix the problem later on.
