Loose Brackets

Many patients have trouble following the dietary recommendations they hear from their orthodontist. Unfortunately, many of these choices result in loose brackets. The pieces of food debris left in your mouth peel away the brackets and diminish your braces’ structural integrity. Please get in touch with our office to get the brackets bonded again and avoid any treatment interruptions.

Poking Wires

Every now and then, the end portion of the archwire becomes loose and starts poking at the inside of your cheeks. You’ll want to get in touch with our office to fix the situation and avoid any damage to your mouth. Keep in mind this won’t necessarily set back your treatment, but you should still seek to fix the situation with professional help.

Lost Clear Aligner Trays

Some patients choose to have their orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® clear aligner trays instead of traditional metal braces. In spite of the many advantages clear aligners have, there’s one thing many patients should look out for: misplacing or losing their aligners. You can set back your treatment quite a lot if you lose your aligners and stop wearing them. Please get in touch with our office for more clear instructions.

Pain and Discomfort

All patients should expect a measure of discomfort when they first get braces. The same will happen following any adjustments or when wearing a new set of clear aligners. Discomfort is not news around orthodontic care, but you should be wary of any prolonged sensation of pain. Excessive, throbbing, or persistent pain may be a sign of deeper dental problems that can even become life-threatening. Please contact emergency services and your orthodontist as soon as possible.
