Rubber bands put pressure on your teeth causing them to move. The more you wear them the quicker you will be finished with treatment.
Wearing elastics will cause your teeth to be sore for about one week.
Wear your elastics as recommended by Dr. Powell (usually all the time).
Sometimes they will break in your mouth. Simply replace them if this happens.
Change your elastics at least once a day.
You will be given enough elastics to last between visits. If you lose them or run out, please call out office, or stop in to get a new supply.
Remember: E =R
Effort = Results
