Spacers and rubber bands? (Braces)

Yesterday I got temporary rubber spacers. Do I still need to wear rubber bands?

yes. The more you wear rubber bands the quicker you get your braces off. I speak from experience; my treatment finished 6 months earlier because of it

Uh-oh. The only two answers and they're both completely different! I do wear my rubber bands all the time (except until most of the pain from tightening a goes away), but I wanted to know because they're trying to pull my teeth in opposite directions, and it's extremely painful, aside from the pain from getting the spacers.

No u don't. The rubber spacers are there instead of the rubber bands! Hope this helps
