Broke Jaw 41/2 weeks ago. Surg.used rubber bands. How long is the recovery period? Doc. removed all bands but 4 this week. I can't reach the molars to attach the bands any recommendations. She wants me to remove the bands before we every meal and leave bands off a total of 4 hrs. I can't put the Bands on the molars Help. I can't see in mouth to do procedure. Can I just put the 2 front bands on and skip the bands on the molars? How much longer? Im really getting depressed. I'm a teaching tennis pro the inactivity is driving me crazy.
