And I tell our patients that, the importance of elastics is kind of how we shimmy the teeth and the bone to get the teeth to fit together right; front to back, side to side, even in a vertical dimension, depending on what we're trying to do.
But, what a lot of patients and parents don't realize is that, when it comes to elastic force and elastic force theory, teeth have to feel that force for 8-10 hours before they even begin to move.
So, I tell kids, once you get those teeth starting to move, you've got to keep that force on them, and keep them moving in a positive direction.
