I’ve had braces for almost a year now. I originally got them because the dentist told me that my lower jaw would keep going “backwards” and my upper jaw would keep coming forward. My understanding is that elastics align your jaw to correct these types of problems. When I asked him about getting rubberbands, he said that my jaws already aligned, even though they clearly haven’t. He told me I wouldn’t need elastics. I wonder why he’s so skeptical to give me elastics? I want to ask him again but I don’t want to come off acting like I know more than him. What should I do? Please help.
