Elastics

Keep your treatment going in the right direction

Contact City Orthodontics

During treatment you will be given elastics to wear to help move your teeth. They may change in size, pressure and the way you place them on your teeth. This is a special time in your orthodontic treatment where you have additional control over how well your treatment progresses.

Elastics may cause your teeth to hurt a little at first. That's because the teeth are moving, which is our goal. Usually the tenderness lasts only a few days. Not wearing your elastics increases the treatment time and will not provide you with a perfect result so it is in your best interest to achieve the best results and together we can do that.
