Here are some solutions to emergencies that may occur during the braces Treatment:
- Relax one of the rules: Call the clinic and make an appointment. If the tape or braces come off the belt, keep it and bring it with you to your next appointment.
- A protruding wire causing a gum injury: Try inserting it with a pencil eraser. If that doesn't work, dry it with a tissue and apply wax to the wire to prevent further sticking.
- Breaking a base and losing a wire: These problems can cause the teeth to move in the wrong direction. Contact our team and schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
- In case of pain: To relieve any pain, rinse your mouth with warm water and salt/or take Advil or Tylenol as directed by your physician.
