Bands

Bands are used in orthodontics to anchor an appliance to the teeth. They are used on the molars and in some cases the premolars. The bands are made from stainless steel and are very similar to a ring. Bands come in different sizes and are custom fitted to the tooth using the appropriate instruments. They are temporally cemented on your teeth with cement designed specifically for the use with bands.
