Dental wax covering the part of the appliance hurting the mouth is often a quick remedy for loose appliances. This wax is available at our office. Please ask at your visit if you would like to have some.
Dental wax can also help if you have a loose wire. Tweezers can be used to adjust the wire back into its proper place. However, please call the office first to make sure this is the best thing to do. Please let the office know if you have a loose or bent wire, or if something just doesn’t feel right, we are here to take care of you and your braces!
Also, know that things happen, and it’s not necessarily something that you ate or did on purpose. At Viva Smiles, we are patient and understanding, no matter the situation that arises.
