Elastic Instructions

Orthodontic elastics are worn to achieve a good upper and lower jaw relationship. Elastics work by putting pressure on your teeth in various directions. They must be worn as instructed or your orthodontic treatment may be compromised and will take longer.

  1. Wear your elastics twenty-four hours a day, unless instructed otherwise.
  2. Remove your elastics only to eat and brush your teeth, replace with new elastics when possible.
  3. Please stop by the office to get more elastics if you lose them or run out.
  4. Forgetting to wear elastics can cause a setback in progress and result in wearing your braces and elastics longer!
