Orthodontist in Laguna Beach, CA

There are a lot of mechanical problems that can arise during orthodontic treatment. Between the wires, brackets, and bands, there are many parts involved! If something goes wrong, you should schedule an appointment with our orthodontist in Laguna Beach, CA, to check that everything is in its proper place. In the meantime, you can take various steps to handle these issues until your appointment.

Loose Bracket

A bracket may come loose after eating something you’re not supposed to, like sticky or hard foods. These tough foods can disrupt the stability of the resin that holds the bracket in place. The bracket may move or break as a result.

Contact our office if you have a broken or loose bracket. Until you visit our office, you can use orthodontic wax to cover the bracket to prevent it from poking your tongue or cheek. 

Broken Wire

A broken wire isn’t effective at moving your teeth. To keep your treatment on track, you must make an appointment with our doctor to repair the broken wire. However, a broken wire usually pokes the inside of your mouth, causing pain, discomfort, and sometimes a sore.

Don’t try to cut the wire on your own. Instead, try to secure the wire by pushing it back up with a pencil. You can also use a bit of orthodontic wax to cover the end to reduce friction and pain. Finally, if the wire has already created a sore, rinse with salt water to prevent infection.

Loose Spacer

We may employ a spacer to create gaps in your teeth where bands will be placed. If your spacers become loose or fall out, make an appointment with our office. You’re likely ready to have your bands put on!
