Isn't it harmful both for the teeth and the gum to put elastics DIRECTLY over the teeth (no buttons) under an invisalign aligner in order to close a gap? I am really worried about my gum. I have the impression that the elastics put too much pressure and might cause a periodontal disease as I already have receding gums.
Can a Rubber Band Be Worn Directly over the Teeth (No Buttons) Under Invisalign Aligners in Order to Close a Gap ?
