If something doesn't seem right, please be sure to give us a call to schedule a time to examine the issue.Contact Us
There are several problems you can probably solve on your own until you can get to our office:
- If you are able to remove a loose piece of appliance, put it in a plastic bag or envelope and bring it with you to your next appointment.
- If your braces are poking you, put soft wax on the piece that's sticking out.
- If the wire has slid to one side, pull it back to the other side with needle-nosed pliers, replacing it in the tube on the back tooth.
After you alleviate any immediate pain or discomfort, it is very important that you still call our office as soon as possible to schedule a time for us to repair and examine the problem. Allowing your appliance to remain damaged for an extended period of time may disrupt your treatment plan.
