Other non emergency
Brace Discomfort or
soreness: If your teeth are
tender after your visit, you may use Advil, Tylenol or other over
the counter pain reliever to help alleviate the initial soreness
or swelling. Rinsing with warm salt water can also help to ease
your pain and help keep your mouth clean.
Lost Separators: Call
the office to have the separator replaced as soon as possible. Meanwhile
follow the instructions given to you at our office and use a small
piece of a clean rubberband to replace the separator.
Wire Irritation: Push
in the wire with a cotton swab or a pencil erasor. If this cannot
be done, then cover the problem wire with othrodontic wax or cotton
to protect your tougue, cheek or lips.
Please, if you have
any questions regarding anything you think is painful or unusual,
call us. We want to help!
