Right now I'm nearly 16 and I have had palate expanders for 5 and a half months, this is because there is a tooth behind my main lower two teeth. I have some pretty bad jaw asymmetry and when I mentioned it to my orthodontist he said that I might have to have rubber bands then. I read a few posts and saw a lot of people saying, 'never to have rubber bands'. I was just wondering why this was and if there was any other solution? Thanks.
