Current teeth update

I didn't know what those little gold hooks were on my braces, so I asked my orthodontist and she said they are going to be for putting elastic bands on later!:S ooh errr

  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.
