Rubber bands are an important step in correcting your teeth's alignment. To move teeth with rubber bands you need a slow continuous force. When moving teeth with rubber bands it is the patient's responsibility to remember to put them in and wear them. If a patient forgets to wear them it slows the process and can even double the time in braces. When wearing elastic bands full time this means 20-23 hrs of the day with them in the correct place.
The time that most patients forget them is after lunch until after dinner this means that the patient can lose anywhere from 1-6 hours of wear. The best way to solve this problem is to have someone or something remind them that elastics wear is important and that they should have their bands in.
