I'm wearing self-ligating braces but my orthodontist put rubber bands on it

Hello, I'm from Portugal, my english is far from perfect, i hope you can understand me .
2 months ago i began orthodontic treatment ,I'm wearing self-ligating braces but my orthodontist put rubber bands on it, i don't understand ,the brackets themselves hold the arch-wire, but she also uses rubber bands in every bracket , i thought self ligated braces didn't use elastics to hold the arch-wire.
Thank you
