3 elastic ties have come off do I need to call the ortho?

I have had my braces for three years and haven’t really had this problem until now. About two weeks ago I had an elastic tie(the like colored band around the tooth) fall off and figured it was fine. Then sometime last week another one came off and today I noticed another one came off. Two of the places where it can off is where my rubber bands go so I just figured that is why they came off. I go to the ortho in two days but I feel like it is really weird that they keep falling off.

    Since your appointment is only 2 days away, my opinion is that you can wait until then.
