What do they do?
Elastics are used to move groups of teeth.
How do they work?
The elastics supply the force to move the teeth.
When do I wear them?
All the time except at mealtimes and when brushing.
How often do I change them?
Once per day – preferably at bed time.
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.
The hook on the brace for the elastic breaks?
