Why Rubber Bands?

Why Rubber Bands?
Posted on 11/08/2018

While we know that rubber bands are not a great fashion statement, they are a crucial part of your orthodontic treatment. They work along with your braces to help achieve a beautiful smile and a great bite. Being faithful about wearing your rubber bands is one of the most vital factors of whether or not your treatment will be completed on time.

With braces, we are able to straighten the upper and lower teeth independent to one another. Rubber bands connect your braces to each other and help to align your teeth and create the perfect bite for you. Initially, wearing elastics will make your teeth sore, but the soreness will go away after a couple of days of continuous wear. If rubber band wear is discontinued or not consistent the soreness will not go away.

If you need additional rubber bands we have conveniently located boxes outside of both our North Raleigh and Fuquay Varina locations. Please make sure you get the right size.

We at Engstrom Orthodontics hope these tips will help and if you are someone who is thinking about orthodontic treatment, contact us for a complimentary consultation in our North Raleigh or Fuquay Varina office. We look forward to hearing from you!
