What are Closing Bands?
In this picture, the Narrow Closing Bands are working to close the spacing between her 2 front teeth.
You will begin the process with Narrow Closing Bands. These are the bands that possess the tensile strength to bring the teeth together. Once the Closing Bands have completed the process of closing the gap, you can then move on to the Narrow Retaining Bands.
Contrary to popular belief, closing the gap is the quickest part of the process. Full gap closure is attained within a matter of weeks (30 days or less).
What are Retaining Bands?
This is the part that is generally not well known. If you stop using the bands immediately after the gap in your teeth is closed by the Closing Bands, your teeth will very quickly begin to open back up again. This happens with braces, Invisalign and all other orthodontic tooth movement devices that exist. That is why everybody that wears braces has to get a Retainer to hold their teeth in place after their braces are removed. This is also why all ORA-BAND packages come with Retaining Bands. The Retaining Bands prevent gaps from reforming. It would not make sense for you to waste time and effort to close a gap, only to see it open up again.
In this picture - taken from the same person as the picture shown above - Narrow Retaining Bands are worn on the 2 front teeth to ensure that the teeth do not space out again. As you can see, the Narrow Retaining Bands are clear and blend in with the natural color of her teeth.
Retaining Bands are thinner and contain less force than the Closing Bands. They are small, clear and comfortable. Nobody will know that you are wearing them on your teeth.
The Combo Pack comes with Narrow Bands for your 2 front teeth and Wide Bands for your Lateral Incisors and Canine Teeth.
If you find yourself in the position of having to close multiple gaps, you will need to use orthodontic elastics that come in a variety of sizes.
There are many different types of gaps that occur between teeth. The versatility in this package makes it an ideal choice for those that are concerned with spacing that spans beyond the 2 most prominent teeth.
In this picture segment, the Narrow Bands brought the 2 front teeth together while the Wide Bands brought in the surrounding teeth.
