Elastics Wear

1. Your elastics must be worn 24 hours per day (or as instructed by the orthodontist) to correct your teeth quickly and properly. Elastics may be removed only for eating, playing sports, and brushing your teeth…then replace immediately. Faithful wear of your elastics will reduce treatment time.

2. Any soreness or speaking difficulty will disappear in a few days.

3. Elastics are to be changed every day. Carry spare elastics at all times so that you can immediately replace broken ones.

4. If you run out or lose your elastics, call my office right away and we will send you more elastics in the mail.
