Wire out of a Brace
Just as a wire may protrude from a brace early on in treatment it is possible for a wire
to come out of a brace. The solution to this problem is to simply reinsert the wire in the
brace using a pair of tweezers or needle nose pliers.

Expander is Loose
If an expander becomes loose we do not want you to activate it until you are seen.
Usually the expander can be pushed back onto the tooth until you get back into our office.
Sticky foods are usually the cause of this.

Wire Poking
Early on in treatment as the teeth move, it is possible for the wires to protrude from the
back brace. This problem can be solved by taking a nail clipper and snipping the wire as
close as possible to the brace. If you cannot clip wire, placing some wax on it will help to
keep you comfortable.

Initial Soreness
After the initial placement of braces or following an adjustment the teeth may be tender
for a couple of days. This occasionally happens and will pass. An over-the-counter pal
reliever such as Advil or Tylenol may be helpful in alleviating this initial soreness.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dr.
Hersh or Dr. Beattie at The newest state of the art orthodontic facility in
West Bloomfield/Commerce Township at (248) 926-4100.
