Elastics are rubber bands for braces and are used to move your teeth into place. They are attached to the orthodontic braces and their function is to create pressure on the teeth.
The elastics can be of different types, such as self-ligating, ligation or no ligation.
Self-ligating elastics do not require any additional ties for attachment and they have a low profile when compared to other types of elastics.
Ligation elastics require ties for attachment and they have a high profile when compared to other types of elastics.
No-ligation elastics do not require ties for attachment.
