Should I wear box elastics for all day? ?

During the day I wear triangle elastics and at night I’m supposed to wear box elastics. Should I wear box elastics all day so I can get my braces off faster ?

    You should follow the instructions you were given by your orthodontist.

    Wearing rubber bands incorrectly, or for different time periods than you were told, can actually make your treatment longer. Your teeth can move incorrectly and you'll have your braces on longer while your orthodontist corrects your mistake.
