What People say about us

ELASTICS CARE

WHAT ARE ELASTICS? Elastics are rubber bands that help move your teeth in a direction that cannot be accomplished with braces alone.  They use constant, light pressure to move your teeth into a better position. 

 

HOW DO I WEAR MY ELASTICS? Always wear your elastics as Dr. Najirad has instructed.  If you ever forget where to put them, just give our office a call and we will be happy to go over it with you!  They may be hard to put in at first, but you will get better (and much quicker) after a few days – have some patience with them. 

 

THINGS TO REMEMBER ABOUT ELASTICS:

  • They only work when being worn, so make sure to wear as instructed!
  • Remove when brushing
  • Replace elastics at least 3-4 times every 24 hours – they are like rubber bands and they can lose their stretch after time
  • Always carry extra elastics with you
  • Taking elastics in and out often, or only wearing them part time, will not move teeth well and it can actually make them sore

 

PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE IF:

  • You have any problems (elastics breaking frequently, a loose band or hook where the elastic is being worn)
  • You run out or lose your elastics (just stop by the office to pick up some more, or give us a call and we can mail you some). We don’t want you to be without them!

We will be happy to arrange a Free Consultation for you in order to get all the information you need to know
