Getting Braces And Watching For Gluten

Recommended Posts

We are heading for braces and I'm concerned about the possibility for gluten in the stuff they make impressions with and also the glue they use to hold the braces to the teeth. Also wondering if the rubber bands they use would contain gluten. Anyone experience this yet?

I have braces ... I washed my mouth out really good after each of the impressions were taken as we could not verify whether it was gluten-free. I did not get sick.

I think the glue is okay. If it's not, I don't know of any alternative. I have no problems with the rubber bands.
