Within 4-7 days, elastic separators will create sufficient room between your teeth for orthodontic bands or an appliance!
Please avoid chewy and sticky foods which might dislodge these separators. Brush
carefully and avoid use of dental floss in these areas temporarily while they are in
Occasionally teeth become slightly tender after separators are placed. If you do
experience any discomfort using Tylenol® or acetaminophen is recommended.
If any of your separators fall out before your next visit, or if you have any questions, please
text our office and we would be more than happy to assist you!
