Braces day, please check that you do not have any loose braces by gently trying to slide each one (usually when brushing your teeth at night). If a wire or brace comes loose, do not be alarmed. If a tie wire is protruding and irritating, use a blunt instrument (back of a spoon or a pencil eraser) and carefully push the wire out of the way. If you have a loose or broken appliance, please call us and we will make the appropriate arrangements to adjust or repair it. If a piece comes loose, save it and bring it with you to the office.
