Now that you have your braces, there may be a few things that could happen during your treatment. Most of these things are not emergencies and can be taken care of at home. We are always here to help. Please call our office if you still have questions or need further assistance. 

Woodstock: 770-928-9227
Lithia Springs: 770-739-1111
Call our office as soon as possible if you break or loosen any of your appliances. Please do not come directly to the office – by calling us, you will allow us to create a time to see you. Even if you have a regular appointment scheduled, call us immediately to notify us if you need an appliance repaired.
Call our office immediately for advice if a bracket or wire is loosened. The bracket may need to be re-fitted as soon as possible. You may have a situation that requires cutting a wire or sliding a bracket off a wire at night or over the weekend. If you need to cut a wire in case of emergency, you may use fingernail clippers that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol. Please call our office the next business day, so that we may schedule an appointment for you.
Sometimes discomfort caused by a wire on your braces can be resolved by moving the wire away from the irritated area with a cotton swab or eraser. If the wire will not move, try covering the end of it with a small piece of cotton or a small amount of wax. If the wire is painful, you can cut it with nail clippers or scissors that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol. If you cannot resolve the wire irritation, call our office for an appointment.
Most patients lose a separator during their treatment. Do not worry about losing a separator, but call our office to see if it needs to be replaced.
During the first week after your braces are in place and routine adjustments are complete, you will likely feel some pain, soreness or discomfort. You may take acetaminophen or other non-aspirin pain relievers while you adjust to your new braces. A warm wash cloth or heating pad may reduce the soreness in your jaws
Please make sure you are taking the proper precautions while wearing braces. This means not eating anything sticky, chewy or hard. These braces are put on with a good glue however, they are not permanently placed so they can come off if you are not careful. Always wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth and your braces. We offer free mouth guards for our patients.Make sure you keep them clean and floss daily.
