Both my husband and I used this practice based on the recommendation of our dentist. A technician put on my braces and Dr. Owen came by just to check on me very briefly. Despite following all of the orthodontist's orders, both my husband and I experienced extensive decay beneath the bands on our molars and even bicuspids. I later learned from another ortho that banding teeth is a rarity because of this exact problem. Between the two of us, my husband and I had to spend an additional $40,000 on dental restoration. I would not recommend this practice to anyone.
