Elastics are put in place to ensure that an overbite doesn't develop, they should be worn all the time, and some people recommend wearing double at night. They should only be taken out to eat or to brush your teeth, not wearing them will only prolong the amount of time you have your brace on, so it is vital that they are worn all the time. Hope this helped.
