What Happens If You Swallow Braces Rubber Bands ?

If you swallow a rubber band from your braces, it’s unlikely to cause any serious harm. However, if you’re concerned about its safety, call your doctor or dentist.

If you swallow a large amount of rubber bands at once, they can form a small lump in your stomach that may cause discomfort.

In this case, call your doctor or go to the emergency room right away. If you swallowed just one or two rubber bands that are loose and not attached to anything else (like the wire of your braces), they may pass through your digestive system without causing any problems at all.

If you swallow a single rubber band while eating food, it’s unlikely to be able to get past the opening between your lips and teeth. If it does get past this opening, it will most likely move down into your throat on its own or with help from coughing or swallowing.
