OUR TREATMENT PLANS
WELCOME NEW PATIENTS!
Your First Visit
LOOSE BAND OR BRACKET
The seal created by the cement (glue) has been broken. Call our office and schedule an appointment. If band and bracket detaches from wire, save it and bring it with you to your next appointment.
BROKEN ARCHWIRE OR HEADGEAR, LOST LIGATURE OR HOOK
These problems could cause the teeth to shift in the wrong direction and must be corrected as soon as possible. Call our office and schedule an appointment.
That's the term for a wire that sticks out and causes irritation. Try tucking it in with the eraser part of a pencil. If that does not work, dry it with a napkin and place wax over the wire to prevent further sticking.
To relieve soreness, rinse your mouth with warm salt water and/or take Advil or Tylenol as directed.
