Rubber bands on braces

hi, I guess you are talking about cross arch elastics where you have to engage the rubber band in hooked teeth in upper and lower arch. If thats the case, just engage it in one arch first with finger and thumb. Pull it over the other hooked tooth (as advised by your dentist) and then just engage the other arch. There are some good videos on youtube on this.
