While some patients may be allergic to the elastics, most people are just fine with them. The rubber is natural latex, so there is usually no problem. However, if you do notice irritation or inflammation, you should contact our orthodontist right away. One of the great things about your elastics is that the bands come in all sorts of colors, so they can be a great way to individualize your braces!
If you have questions about your elastics in Glastonbury, Connecticut, your braces or your orthodontic care, or if you would like to make an appointment to see Dr. Richard Risinger for your complimentary consultation, call Risinger Orthodontics at 860-633-8321 today, and one of our team members will help you schedule an appointment.
