What do they do?

They help move the upper and lower teeth into an ideal bite.

How do they work?

The stretch of the elastic material generates a force to pull the upper and lower teeth towards each other into an ideal occlusion.

When do I wear them?

All the time except when brushing your teeth.

How often do I change them?

Once per day – preferably at bed time.

What if an elastic breaks?

You will need to replace it immediately. It’s a good idea to keep a packet of elastics with you all the time.

What if the hook on the brace for the elastic breaks?
