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.
Intraoral Class II Elastics All latex elastics lose approximately ½ of an ounce of force after just a few pulls, which is why we have made our elastics ½ of an ounce higher than most companies so that you get a true 2 oz., 4 oz., and 6 oz. Force for a longer period of time.
