Spacers are small elastics that fit snugly between certain teeth to move them slightly so bands can be placed around these teeth later. Spacers can fall out on their own if enough space has already been created. To determine if the spacers need to be replaced, slip some dental floss between your teeth; if the floss gets stuck, that means the spacer hasn’t created enough room and needs to be replaced prior to your banding appointment.
If your spacers need to be replaced, please call us to schedule an appointment. We want you to begin your treatment as soon as possible!
