If you happen to forget to wear your elastics one day, don't double
up the next -- just follow your regular instructions.
Rubber bands get tired. When they lose their stretch, they don't
provide the proper pressure on your teeth and jaws. So it's very
important to change them as directed, even when they're not broken.
If you have
any problems -- like elastics breaking frequently, a loose wire
or band, or a hook that's broken -- call
our office. Don't wait until your next scheduled appointment.
These problems should be corrected as soon as possible.
faithfully wearing your rubber bands, following all instructions
and keeping appointments is the quickest, easiest way to achieve
your goal of a healthy, beautiful smile.
