Intraoral Elastics for Braces

To correct bite issues such as underbites and overbites, intraoral elastics play an important role in pairing with a person's braces. These rubber bands help to move teeth in certain directions by being specifically placed on designated brackets with hooks. The pressure that is created by the elastic band pulls the jaw either forward or backward to align the patient’s bite and enhance the appearance in their smile.

Sometimes rubber bands are confused with ligatures, another elastic orthodontic product involved in conjunction with the use of braces. However, ligatures are smaller than intraoral elastics and used for keeping archwires in place on brackets.

Rubber Band Options

Rubber bands for braces come in several materials and color options such as:

  • Latex
  • Rainbow

Intraoral elastics also vary in size and thickness. These rubber bands are worn constantly throughout the orthodontic treatment, so they often need to be changed or replaced due to loss of elasticity or breakage.
