ELASTICS AND ELASTOMERICS..

  • Elastics and Elastomeric are routinely used as a active component of orthodontic therapy. Elastics have been a valuable adjunct of any orthodontic treatment for many years. There use, combined with good patient cooperation, provides the clinician with the ability to correct both Antero-posterior and vertical discrepancies.
  • Both natural rubber and synthetic elastomers are widely used in orthodontic therapy. Naturally produced latex elastics are used in the Begg technique to provide intermaxillary traction and intramaxillary forces. Synthetic elastomeric materials in the form of chains find their greatest application with edgewise mechanics where they are used to move the teeth along the arch wire.
