Broken Braces

This can occur if the patient bites down on hard or sticky foods or, in some cases due to a bite interference. Generally not considered an emergency, this can occur for most patients undergoing orthodontics. Please contact the clinic and they will let you know what to do. In the early stages, this is not usually a problem, however as we come to the terminal stages of treatment brackets which come off need to be assessed by the orthodontist.

Poking wire

As the teeth move around, the wires can adjust to extend behind the last molars. This can occur more during space closure as well as during bite correction. Some orthodontic wax can help in alleviating any tenderness temporarily. Any one of the orthodontic team can cut or trim the excess wire.

Lost or broken retainers

There is an increased chance that teeth can move if the retainers are lost/broken in the early stages after orthodontics. It is important to contact the clinic as soon as possible to ensure a new retainer is made or the old one repaired.
