Yes, yes and definitely yes!! But, only if you want a beautiful smile and your teeth to fit together properly. Braces will do most of the work to make your teeth look great. However, the final alignment usually requires wearing rubber bands and that will be something we ask you to do. If worn as directed, you won’t be wearing rubber bands for long. Otherwise, your treatment time will be extended, and even though braces are awesome, straight brace-less teeth are even better. As I like to say, “Teeth are like beautiful furniture, wearing your rubber bands will just rearrange the room of furniture to make a beautiful smile”.
