                      If a wire causes irritation- push the wire  away from the area using the eraser

                        end of a pencil or a cotton swab. If the wire cannot be tucked away, cover

                        the end  of the wire with a small piece of wax or a cotton ball, until you can

                        see us for an adjustment.

                        If a wire breaks- cover the end of the wire with dental wax, and call the office

immediately for an appointment.

 

                       If a wire comes out of the brace- attempt to reinsert the wire with a pair of 

    needle nosed pliers or tweezers.  If the wire is not sticking you, place a piece of

                       wax over the area. If the wire is sticking you and wax does not help, the wire can be

                       cut with a small wire cutter or nail clipper close to the back of the last brace. 

                       This is a last resort if professional help is not available.

                                                                                  

                       If a bracket or band becomes loose- it usually remains connected to the main wire.

                                         Call the office as soon as possible to schedule an appointment.

 

                       If you suffer a trauma to the teeth or mouth- if it is causing pain call your dentist

                       or go to the emergency room.  Otherwise, call the office to schedule an

                       emergency visit.

                                                                                                         

                        If an appliance such as an expander becomes loose- if it is not causing pain or

                        discomfort, call the office during normal business hours.
