Common Braces Problems

There are few orthodontic emergencies during the course of your treatment. However, you may discover that you have loose or broken braces or a shift in the orthodontic wire which can irritate your lip or gums. The orthodontist will give you some wax to cover a sharp wire in case this happens to you. If there is an incident you can not solve yourself, then you might want to call the practice for problems with braces. Along with poking wire, loose elastic tie, wire out of the tube or slot and loose or broken braces can all be solved in less than 5 minutes by your dentist.
