  • Yes DR. Ritz is write , there is no substitute for elastics, I was not able to eat for full one week wen I used to wear elastics, i mean it was simply painful, i was totally on liquid diet and that was dreadful, no painkillers works , its better to bear the pain for a while than increasing the time for the braces treatment

  • you can talk to your orthodontist about your problem and if possible he can give you the elastics which apply less force and are more comfortable but that will increase your treatment time.  But if it is not possibe then you have to become used to it as there is no substitute for elastics.
