FACTS ABOUT SPACERS

  1. The little rubber bands increase spaces between teeth to make room for fitting braces.
  2. They will make the teeth sore for two days. If the soreness is particularly uncomfortable for you,then pain medication such as aspirin, Tylenol, or Advil should relieve the temporary discomfort
  3. Dont chew gum or anything that is sticky as it will pull out the spacers
  4. The spacers may feel like you have popcorn between your teeth; don’t pick them out!
  5. Brush your teeth regularly after eating anything before bedtime. (NOTE: During this time only- you cannot use dental floss. We will teach you how to floss between your braces.)
  6. If any of the spacers fail out – that’s O.K. It simply means there is enough space in that area
  7. Our office will remove these spacers just prior to fitting the braces.
