For most kids the fun part about braces is getting to pick which colors you want to wear! They can change them to different ones at each visit. We have options to blend in if that’s what they prefer. Most of our patients like to pick colors according to their interest such as: sports, big events (prom), school colors, or simply their favorite color! The color rubber band’s hold the wire in the slot of each bracket so that we can guarantee that each tooth is tracking along with the rest of their teeth. If you ever see one of the colors missing it means either the bracket broke or the tie came off, usually with something sticky, and that tooth can fall behind. When this happens call our office and let us know as soon as you can because it can extend your original treatment time. That applies to broken brackets as well!
