One thought on “Do I Really Need to Wear Rubber Bands On My Braces?

  1. Arti says:

    This is where orthodontic rubber bands come in. Your braces by themselves do a great job of straightening your teeth and closing spaces. For most patients, wearing your rubber bands all day and all night is required. You can think of it this way. But there are certain bite problems that can’t be fixed with braces alone. The two main exceptions are when you eat or when you brush your teeth. If you’ve already put the time and resources into getting braces, how much more of a hassle will it really be to temporarily add on rubber bands? In the long run, anyone with a bite problem is truly grateful that they chose to put rubber bands on their braces.
