#5 – Ran out of elastics? Don’t panic!

The rubber bands are made from medical-grade latex and are very important in fixing bite issues and work by applying steady pressure that is needed to guide teeth into the correct positions.

These bands stretch over the tiny hooks on the top and bottom of the brackets, or over small buttons if you are wearing clear aligners.

I ran out of elastics, how do I get more?

If you have run out of elastic bands for your braces, please do not panic you can contact the clinic and we can post some out for you.

Do not try elastics sourced from other places or online, as you must only ever use the ones provided by your orthodontist. Other elastics can damage your treatment.
