ElasticsPlease wear your elastics exactly as they have been prescribed. Failure to follow the instructions is likely to prolong your treatment and may result in a compromised final result.
Change your elastics as indicated (several times each day). Remove your elastics while eating and brushing your teeth. Replace them immediately.
During the first few days, you may experience some discomfort while wearing elastics. This is considered normal and should go away even with continued elastic wear. Please contact Dr. Davirro if the level of discomfort increases or pain lasts an extended period of time (more than one week).
Always have some extra elastics with you in your pocket, purse or backpack to use in the event of breakage.
If you have any problems with the elastics (i.e. bent or broken hooks), please call the office for assistance.
