Do Rubber Bands or Chains on Braces Actually Work?
I am a Class III, 20 year old, with an edge to edge bite. My upper jaw falls .05mm ahead of my lower jaw. (overjet?) My question is how effective is rubber bands or chains at correcting this malocclusion? I have noticed that the problem seems to be literally 50% maxilla underdeveloped and 50% mandible protruding. Is it possible to achieve a class I bite eschewing surgery and using rubber bands or chains? If so, how does it work, do the jaws actually move? When is surgery necessary?Thank

Rubber bands can achieve significant correction with braces or Invisalign
Do they work?
