Headgear and Elastics

Headgear gently “pulls” on your teeth to restrict further forward growth of your upper teeth and jaw.

 

With the aim of correcting overbite, headgear puts pressure against the upper teeth and jaw. This holds the teeth in position or helps them move to a better position.

 

Headgear should not be worn when you are playing sports, eating, or brushing your teeth.

Elastics

Wearing elastics (rubber bands) improves the fit of your upper and lower teeth together. Elastics are an important part of orthodontic treatment and depend on patient's cooperation. Elastics put extra pressure to the braces and accelerate the movement of the teeth.
