Separators or spacers are little rubber doughnuts that may be placed between your teeth to push them apart so that orthodontic bands may be placed during your next appointment. The separators will be removed before we place the bands. Separators do not mix well with sticky foods, toothpicks, or floss. Below you can find a step-by-step guide on how to place separators between your teeth.
If you have more questions about separators, or if you’re having trouble with yours, don’t hesitate to contact us.
