WHEN AM I GETTING RUBBER BANDS?
The timing for placement of rubber bands depends upon your bite and jaw position. Often rubber bands are placed towards the end of treatment to “tweak” the orthodontic treatment but this is not always the case. Sometimes a patient will have the bands placed after a few adjustments, while other times it may be 10 months into treatment.
HOW ARE RUBBER BANDS PLACED?
The bands are hooked on the top bracket and connected to the bottom. It’s not a painful process, though the patient may feel tightness in the beginning.
