Elastics

  • Elastics help move teeth and correct the bite.
  • Elastics are to be worn 24 hours a day (Day and Night).
  • Elastics are to be removed only while eating and brushing your teeth.
  • Replace elastics with new ones after every meal.
  • Always carry a pack of elastics with you so they may be replaced if they break.
  • Elastics might cause some tenderness to the teeth for the first day or two.  Please take Tylenol or Advil if needed.
  • If you are unable to wear your elastics as prescribed, please call the office immediately.  Lost time now could cause a serious delay in treatment.
