    hi

    I wear elastics however last night I was tired and attached my elastics in completely the wrong area and woke up this morning with an achy jaw and pain in my teeth, anyway I took the elastic off immediately and the pain has subsided, could I have caused any permenant damage to my teeth or ruined my orthodontic treatment? Thanks

    I'm sorry I don't know enough information to help you. Could you go back to the dentist/orthodontist who is treating you? Many times initial "damage" can be corrected and/or managed.
