Rubber Band Wear

Smiling Braces With Rubber Bands

*Rubber bands are to be worn 24-hours per day except when brushing your teeth, unless stated otherwise by the Orthodontist.  Failure to wear your rubber bands, as instructed, can result in treatment running longer than expected.  It may also affect the finished orthodontic treatment results.

*Change your rubber bands at least a few times per day with new rubber bands.  Typically when you eat meals and brush your teeth.  The rubber bands will eventually lose their elasticity.

*If you break or lose a rubber band, replace immediately.  Always carry a spare pack of rubber bands with you.

*Remember to pick up additional rubber bands at every appointment.

*If you are running low or lose your packets of rubber bands, please contact the office at (360) 883-6713.  We would be more than happy to mail them to you.
