Those elastic bands for braces can fix cases of mild to moderate overbites. If the elastic bands don't work, metal push-rods are used instead.
Hi, I'm actually having jaw surgery to correct my bite because mines to severe to just be fixed by elastic bands, but I think they'll be used after surgery to keep my teeth together:) are you having surgery or braces?
I have those hooks! I didn't know what they were for either... I assumed something would atatch to them but they seem too far forward for elastics.
If anyone reading this know the reason for the gold hooks can you explain please. I can't find any information about them and didn't know they were on teeth until I'd left the orthodontist.
I just got out of an adjustment and I have these hooks, googled it and nothing but this came up as to what they are? I don't think I need elastics as I have already had a bite correction brace earlier in my treatment. Help?
