For the purpose of moving individual teeth or several teeth to improve your bite we use the elastics. These rubber bands sometimes wear from the back to the front or front to the back or just at the front teeth. You take the rubber bands out yourself when you eat and replace them yourself after you eat and change them every other day for a new one. If you need rubber bands, your orthodontist will give you a supply and show you how to place them.
