* A graceful and effective bite
* Improved resting lip posture
* An aesthetically pleasing alignment of the teeth (“straight” teeth)
* A broader smile
* Improvement of the jaw profile

Self-Help Guide

Lost Separators: If a separator falls out and you know where it came from, take a piece of dental floss and attempt to pass it between the teeth. If it passes easily and it is only a couple of days until the banding appointment, then no action is required. If the floss is tight between the teeth, then you need to come in and have the separator replaced.

Teeth Soreness: It is common for separators, braces, or new wires to cause soreness. Taking Tylenol or Advil before or after an adjustment appointment is helpful. Normally, any pain only lasts for a day or two.
