If part of your braces feel rough or sharp, you can try to tuck a poking wire out of the way with the eraser end of a pencil. If it is still bothering you, you should try putting orthodontic wax over the sharp part of your braces. If you are still experiencing discomfort after trying these steps, then you should call the office and we can advise you of what you should do.
If I one of your brackets or bands comes loose, and it is not bothering you, then it is usually to wait until your next appointment to repair or rebond it. Just call the office ahead of time to let us know that something feels loose. However, if it is bothering you, or if you are unsure of what to do, then you should call the office and we can advise you.
