You already know some of the basic, simple suggestions you’ve been told before. Remember not to “play with” your braces and don’t eat sticky or hard foods.
It is very important to take note of all these little things because they can cause bigger problems if you choose not to follow them!
For example, eating too many sticky or tough food items may lead loosening arch wires or bands – even an out-of-slot wire.
Playing with your braces could also result in soreness as well as potential additional injuries such like poking arches into a hole it wasn’t supposed to be pushed through. Here are some other issues that might happen when wearing metal brackets:
- lost elastic
- a loose band
- tooth soreness
- poking arch wire
- an out-of-slot wire
- a sore inside your mouth
Braces emergencies are an unfortunate but inevitable part of life with braces. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to remedy these uncomfortable situations but there is help for you with whatever your needs may be (yes, even if it’s just a simple problem). In this article we are going to discuss some solutions for small problems that might seem insignificant at the moment; however, they could easily turn into something more serious or painful if not addressed right away.
When braces don’t fit quite as nicely on one side as another or when adjustments take too long – these little things make people feel like their teeth aren’t straight because our eyes naturally adjust towards what’s different about them! With any emergency situation involving your prosthesis such as broken brackets – have faith.
We’ve seen it all, from poking arch wires to brackets that are seemingly too big. If you’re struggling with discomfort in your mouth while wearing braces or need some wax for the long-term then let your orthodontist know!
We understand how frustrating and difficult it can be when people who wear braces experience pain due to metal bracket against their lips and/or cheeks. That’s why there are a variety of options on hand such as putting wax over physical pins if there is an issue with them pushing into sensitive tissue inside one’s lip area or out-of-slot wire causing friction within the front teeth because they don’t fit correctly anymore.
Tooth soreness is a normal part of getting braces or Invisalign. It’s often caused by increased pressure on your teeth and will go away in time, but if it doesn’t you can use ibuprofen (Advil) or acetaminophen (Tylenol).
Most tooth pain goes away within 2 days when there are new aligners put into the mouth to straighten them out. You might also feel some discomfort from tightening phases for braces because they increase the amount of force that pushes against your teeth without warning before letting up again. Taking over-the-counter medication like Advil could help with this minor discomfort, which would make adjusting easier!
If you have any questions or are unsure about something, don’t hesitate to contact your family orthodontist or search for an expert orthodontist near you here. They will help answer your questions and address the problem with efficiency so that it doesn’t become a larger issue.
