Dental rubber bands are one of the most important things that dentists and oral care doctors use on their patients. These bands come in very handy with the braces that are on the teeth of the patients.
Dental rubber bands help a great deal in properly aligning the teeth of the patients. With the help of these bands, problems like over-biting and under-biting could be treated easily. But they cannot do the job alone. One would require dental braces also. These rubber bands might be secondary in its role but still the primary role played by the dental braces cannot be effective if not supported by these dental rubber bands.
These bands are generally attached to the brackets that are there in one’s mouth. These bands are generally latex bands which are small in size. One cannot do with just one such band for a patient. The doctor would require two bands, one for the upper jaw and the other for the lower jaw.
These dental rubber bands are generally used to exert some force and pressure on the brackets and that force would finally result in the teeth moving to the proper or desired alignment. The movement of the teeth to the right place would take some time and then after the desired result has been achieved, one can get away from these dental rubber bands.
If these bands are properly and correctly used, then the results would be very obvious and as per expectations. But if they are not properly installed, then that might cause some problems that might be very serious in its effects. Therefore, it is important that you go to the right doctor to get this all fixed.
Good results will ensure that the person would not have difficulties in talking or chewing his food and it will also see a sparkle in his or her smile. The pain related to the jaw area could also be cured to a large extent, if there was any. But during the period when the band and the braces are being put on, there would be lots of restrictions on the food habits, which one must sincerely follow.
