Orthodontic Information

Try to move the wire away from the irritated area with a q-tip or pencil eraser. If the wire does not move, place a small amount of orthodontic wax over it. If you cannot find the wax we provided you with, you can purchase it at most convenience stores. If you need to cut a wire, you may use fingernail clippers that have been washed and sterilized in rubbing alcohol. Call our office the next business day so that we may schedule an appointment to see you.

Contact the office as soon as you notice a band or bracket is loosened. You may need to cut the wire with clean fingernail clippers that have been sterilized in rubbing alcohol after sliding the bracket or band off. Call our office the next business day so that we may schedule an appointment to see you. Watch Video

You may experience some discomfort the first 3-5 days after an adjustment. Over the counter non-aspirin pain relievers will help relieve most discomfort.
