Braces problems

Reset Decrease Increase
Although there are very few true orthodontic emergencies, during the course of treatment you may discover that parts of your braces may become loose or broken.

You may also discover that wires may shift and begin irritating your lips or checks.
In this case study we will address some possible orthodontic situations and how they may be remedied at home.
If you have a problem that you cannot resolve on your own call your orthodontist office. Your orthodontic team may be able to give you advice on how to solve the problem yourself or schedule an appointment so that your problem can be fixed.

Your teeth can become sore the first time separators or wires are placed or following an orthodontic activation appointment.
Usually the teeth are most sore during the first 24 to 72 hours. After 72 hours, the teeth usually start feeling better.
Maintain a soft food diet as needed. If necessary, take the pain reliever you would normally use for a headache. During the first week of treatment you may notice sores or ulcerations inside your mouth. This can happen because your checks and lips are not used rubbing against your braces. Over time, the skin of inside of your mouth will get tougher and you will no longer have sores.
To provide some relieve for your lips and checks, rubbing against your rough braces, you can place a small pea size amount of wax or cotton on the area of the braces that is causing the sore or ulceration.

To place wax, brake off a piece and roll it into a pea sized ball. To get the wax to stick, dry the area with a cotton swab and place the ball of wax over the area of irritation. Mold the wax with your fingers until it is smooth. Remove the wax when eating or brushing and re – apply as needed. The sore should improve within a couple of days and completely heal within a week.
If it is worst call your orthodontist and have it examined.

During the course of treatment you may discover that a band or bracket is loose. This is usually caused by playing with your braces or eating hard or sticky foods. This is generally not an emergency, unless it is associated with pain or discomfort. You will need to call your orthodontist office to make an appointment in order to have the band or bracket put back on.
