As well as orthodontic braces being used to close the gaps between teeth, patients also need their teeth aligning into position for a correct ‘bite’. Rubber bands or orthodontic elastics are often involved in this stage of treatment; one on each side of the mouth to move your teeth and jaw into the proper alignment. Bands are hooked between a bracket attached to your top canines and a bracket attached to one of your bottom molars.
Orthodontic bands must be removed during meals as well as when cleaning your teeth. Typically expect to replace bands daily.
We stock clear bands for their discrete appearance, with a range of strengths and sizes available. Latex & latex-free options.
