Dr. Gluck has some helpful hints to help remedy some minor problems while you are waiting to be seen in our office.
• Loose Band: If the band or bracket is still attached to the wire, leave it in place. If this is uncomfortable, place wax on it. If the band or bracket comes out completely, wrap it in tissue.
• Loose Wire: Try to place the wire back in place with tweezers. If that is not possible, clip wire with fingernail clippers behind last tooth to which it is securely fastened. If any discomfort, place wax on it.
• Poking Wire: Try pushing the wire down with spoon or eraser. If this does not work, place wax on the protruding wire for safety.
• Loose Appliance: If appliance, such as an expander is sticking or poking, try to temporarily push it back on to the tooth. Remove it if the entire appliance is loose.
• Soreness: Use warm salt water rinses and non-prescription pain reliever.

To avoid causing unnecessary orthodontic problems, be careful what you eat and avoid the foods outlined as off limits or prohibited while wearing braces.
