Hello everyone,

I got braces on and started wearing elastics/rubber bands a couple of months ago. I usually eat with my elastics on, but tonight I guess one of them popped off and I swallowed it. After dinner, I took my elastics off to brush my teeth,and I found out that one of my rubber bands is missing. I probably swallowed it. I am so worried as it may cause any harm. What do I need to do? Please help me!!!

Best Regards!
