What should I do if I lose my elastics?
If you lose your elastics you should contact your orthodontist immediately. Do not wait until your next appointment. It’s important to consistently wear your elastics to get the results you want. A few days without elastics can set back your progress and prolong the entire process.
We also caution you against using any other non-prescribed rubber bands as a temporary solution. If they have not been approved by your orthodontist, they should not be put in your mouth.
