Instructions for
Intra-Oral Elastics


Elastics should be worn 24 hours a day unless instructed otherwise.


Elastics can be taken out to eat and brush your teeth but should be replaced immediately following.


Insert a new set of elastics at least once daily. This is most conveniently done when you are brushing your teeth in the morning or evening.


Keep a bag of elastics with you at all times. Extra bags can be kept at school/work, home etc.


Elastics are worn to fit your bite. If they are not worn consistently, we will not be able to achieve an ideal result and the stability of your case will be gravely affected.


When elastics are not worn as instructed, treatment is unnecessarily extended, and additional charges may apply.
