One thought on “What is the purpose of rubber bands on braces?

  1. Arti says:

    The only reasons you should be taking the rubber bands out is to eat if you are unable to eat with them on, brushing and flossing your teeth and putting a new set on. You need to wear your rubber bands 24/7 unless instructed alternatively by the doctor. If you are not wearing your bands well this could potentially exseem your treatment time. Rubber bands are used for people who generally have an over or under bite that needs correcting in order for the bite to fit together well.
