There is yet another do-it-yourself fad that deserves the attention of dental professionals: sleep appliances, reports DentistryIQ.

There are some procedures patients can do for themselves (e.g., non-prescription-strength whitening), and there are some procedures that are best left to trained professionals. Fortunately, there aren’t any DIY tooth extraction kits being sold in stores, and I don’t foresee that happening anytime soon. That’s because the dangers of someone removing their own tooth are obvious.
