for Class II Elastics

Method of Hooking on the Elastics:

In most cases of patients with braces in Singapore, elastics are needed to be worn in some part of their treatment. There are instances where even patients wearing Invisalign in Singapore would also need to use elastics. It is important that the rubber bands are worn in the correct way for an effective orthodontic correction.


You will need to put on the rubber bands from the top hook at the front as shown by the blue arrow (if this hook is not installed to your braces, please use the hook attached to the bracket instead, as shown by the green arrow) to the bottom hook at the back, as shown by the light purple arrow. 

Therefore, both elastics should start from the bottom molars, running diagonally upwards and forwards to the upper canine region.

This method applies for both left and right sides.
