|Not my teeth okay! :)|
Yes, I bought an orthoband on eBay and received it before Christmas. Here is what happened:
I put orthobands or dental bands on my teeth. After 5 hours, I noticed that the gap was getting smaller. After 10 hours, the gap was totally gone. In less than 24 hours, my gap was gone.
BUT when I forgot to wear my dental bands, the gap started to build up again. It was an ON and OFF scenario. You want the gap closed, then wear your dental bands. If not, then don't.
What is the feeling of wearing Orthobands or Dental Bands?
At first, it is kind of annoying and uncomfortable. It can hurt your gums when the bands are going on top of the root of your teeth. It can cause bleeding. Sometimes, I am waking up in the middle of the night just to remove the bands because my gums are bleeding. Now, I am still wearing my bands and it doesn't hurt anymore. It feels natural.
The Big Reveal: Home-made solution on how to fix teeth gap
I was shocked when I saw the dental bands that I bought because it looks like sanrio. My mom teased me for buying a sanrio for $4. A sanrio is a rubber that girls use to tie or braid their hairs. For short, you can simply use sanrio or hair rubber bands to close your teeth gap without going to your orthodontist.
You can also try buying on Amazon these orthobands if you are not that comfortable using my home-made bands. Buy in Amazon.
