It is rare for a problem with your braces to be an emergency, however, we strongly recommend that you contact us should any major concerns arise. We will show you how to look for potential problems with your braces.

If the orthodontic archwire is annoying your cheek or gum, please place wax over this area and contact us as soon as possible. If a bracket is loose, please contact us as soon as soon as possible. Please note that avoiding hard and sticky foods will help prevent unnecessary breakages of your braces.

Repeated breakages will certainly slow down your orthodontic treatment.
