I just got rubber bands [on braces] yesterday.....

My orthodontist told me that I CAN take them off when I eat - I don't HAVE to. I guess my question is, it even possible to eat with them in? Thanks!! God bless :)

When I had them, they were on my front teeth which made it really hard to eat with them in. You probably should take them off to eat. You could swallow it if it comes off. That wont hurt you really, but its kinda annoying.
The twenty minutes you spend eating wont mess with what the rubber bands are doing.

I was told to eat with mine in but I had trouble with that and it was kinda gross when food would get stuck and shoot off of the rubber bands while eating... Lol
I wouldn't eat with them in. Just make sure you put them back in!
