Stained Elastic Ligatures

I was already careful about avoiding curry but still got my elastic ligatures (for those of you who don’t know, ligatures are those little rubber bands on each bracket that hold the archwire in place) stained by eating pickles =(. I went into my dental office today to ask if anything could be done to whiten them, but alas I’m stuck with the neon yellow-green until next visit =(… I checked for some advice but it looks like there are no real great options once they’re stained. So besides curry, you can add pickles to the list.

    No, not this time. I thought I would spare the audience. The people who have braces know very well what it looks like.
