Loose Wires and Braces

You may find that a wire or band of your braces becomes loose – which is no cause for alarm

If it happens, just contact our office as soon as you can so we can take a look and check it, and fix what needs repairing.

There are some temporary fixes for loose wires, as well, that you can try if you can’t get right into our office for us to check it out. Try using the back of a spoon or the eraser end of a pencil to carefully and gently push the wire back into place. If the loose wire is causing irritation to your lips or cheeks, put wax or a wet cotton ball over the broken wire to relieve the pain.
