During orthodontic treatment, elastics may be necessary. Consistent elastic wear is crucial to successfully finish treatment as we planned.
Unless otherwise told, elastics should be worn 24 hours per day including while sleeping. They should be changed twice a day, usually at breakfast and supper because they will lose their stretch over time. They may also be removed briefly to eat lunch, but you must remember to put them back in.
Please call or email us if you have any questions about how your elastics should be worn, or if you require additional bags of elastics.
