How do I place the Teeth Gap Bands on my teeth?

  • Take one band out of the package. Grasp one band with index finger and thumb of each hand and stretch it out.  Slowly slide the band around the outside of the teeth with the gap between them. (Same way you would floss your teeth once you get one side in work on the other.)

How long should I wear the Teeth Gap Bands on my teeth?

  • You should wear the bands every night until the gap is closed. It will only take a couple of days for people with small gaps to close. For gaps 3mm or greater it will take a few weeks.

Will this fix my teeth if they are crooked?

  • No, it only pulls your teeth together to close the gap. Braces are needed to fix crooked teeth.

When should I stop using the Teeth Gap Bands on my teeth?

  • You should wear them as long as it takes to pull your teeth together. If you stop wearing them and the gap reappears repeat treatment.

If I have a large gap will new gaps form on either side of my old gap?

  • As your teeth come together it pushes on your gum causing it to contract so no new gap should appear. If you start to notice a gap use a Teeth Gap Band on that gap as well. This will prevent new gaps from appearing.

Once the gap has closed will it reappear once treatment stops?

  • If your teeth have not yet settled into position it can. We suggest you place a band around the teeth with the gap if you start to notice it reappearing. Over time the bands will not have to be worn as often and your teeth will settle into position.

Other options:

  • Have to have a retainer made that will hold your teeth in together.
  • Have a orthodontist glue a small wire to the back of your front teeth to make sure they don't move again.

Will Teeth Gap Bands work for multiple gaps?

  • For multiple gaps we suggest that you put one band around your front two teeth. After a few days or when you feel comfortable wearing it on your front teeth put two more bands on your teeth. Around the other two teeth with a gap between to close those gaps as well. So you will be wearing 3 bands at a time. You can see picture exams at the following address: http://teethgap.com/pictures.htm

How does Teeth Gap Bands close Tooth Gaps?

  • Teeth Gap uses special Compressor bands called Teeth Gap Bands to draw your teeth together. They provide "the pull" necessary to move the teeth quickly, and in the right direction. You stretch the Teeth Gap Band when you put it around your teeth. Since the band is stretched out it pulls the teeth towards one another because it wants to contract.
