Wearing Elastics (Rubber Bands) 

We prescribe elastic wear for our patients to move teeth in a certain way or to prevent teeth from moving the wrong way.  Without proper wear treatment cannot progress and treatment time can increase!
Wear the elastics exactly as instructed.  Attaching them differently, wearing them for less time than recommended, or doubling up, could cause your teeth to move the wrong way.
Initially, wearing elastics will make teeth sore.  There is an adjustment period of soreness with elastics and removing them because they make teeth sore will allow the teeth to overcome the soreness and make progress.
We rely on our patients to wear elastics in order to complete treatment.
