My orthodontist gave me these bands but they always pop! Should I continue to wear them?

even while I eat they pop!

When you are eating, you should take off your bands. This is because they are more likely to snap when you have food in your mouth, and you may end up swallowing them unnoticed. However, it would be good that you consult your orthodontist and finds out why the bands are popping.

1st of... You aren't supposed to wear them while you eat.

Also I hardly wore my bands and I got my braces off 6 months early. I know people who wore theirs every day but got theirs off later.
