It shows you different ways the elastics are worn for different problems. This includes for when the top teeth stick forwards (Class II problem), the booth teeth stick forwards (Class III problem) and even when the centre lines do not match.
Elastics can be the most important part of your treatment and excellent compliance is essential. You must wear your elastics exactly as prescribed by your orthodontist. If you don’t your treatment could take a lot longer.
Normally your orthodontist will ask you to wear the elastics full-time or night-time.
Full-time wear mean you should be wearing your elastics in the day and night, unless you are eating, brushing your teeth or taking part in an activity that requires a mouthguard.
Night time wear means you wear the elastics as sleep every night.
