Elastics By Top Rated Fort Collins C O OrthodontistWe get it. Braces and rubber bands aren’t always comfortable when first applied, and they may take time to get used to. You may choose not to wear rubber bands, but that will only lengthen the time necessary to straighten your teeth. However, the choice between wearing or not wearing rubber bands isn’t your only option. You can explore alternative ways to reduce your rubber band discomfort by talking to your orthodontist in Fort Collins, CO.

What Is the Purpose of Your Rubber Bands?

Rubber bands are typically used to provide you with better treatment and improved outcomes. After all, it’s a safe bet that you want straighter teeth, since that’s the number-one reason why people choose to get braces. Rubber bands rely on the power of elasticity to straighten crooked and misaligned teeth effectively by adding pressure to the braces. In this way, they reduce the time it takes to correct misaligned teeth. Rubber bands are not used with all forms of braces, such as Invisalign, but those choosing affordable metal braces may want to optimize their results with the use of rubber bands.

Rubber bands are especially effective in correcting overbites and underbites. Children and adults can speak to an orthodontist in Fort Collins, CO, about their braces and ask how to speed up the time it takes to correct misaligned teeth with the use of rubber bands.

How to Correct Problems Related to Use of Rubber Bands

Rubber bands can take getting used to when first applied. In addition, some orthodontic patients report issues with irritation and more. Your orthodontist in Fort Collins can help with:

  • Abrasion — Your Fort Collins orthodontist can provide wax products that will decrease the abrasive sensation associated with rubber bands.
  • Discomfort — Your orthodontist can prescribe a pain-relieving medication or an anti-inflammatory to help with any discomfort.
  • Issues with Your Gum Line — See an orthodontist to review your situation and make any necessary adjustments.

You do not have to feel discomfort when you use rubber bands with your braces. Call our orthodontics office in Fort Collins, CO, at 970.490.6065  today to discuss any issues with your rubber bands.

“I’m 15 years old and have been coming to Ebert Orthodontics for the past 3 years. I love the staff, they are all really friendly and sweet! I am allergic to latex so I can’t have the colored bands, but last time I was in I was pleasantly surprised to see they had gotten me a special colored latex-free band! (It’s the little things that count!)”

“Dr. Ebert and her team have changed my life! Before my braces I was afraid to smile and show my teeth. After my braces got taken off I was confident and smiled showing my teeth. I cannot thank you enough for helping me.”
