If you come across any of the following orthodontic and braces emergencies during dental braces treatment with our Delhi Dental Braces Treatment Center, kindly follow the following guidelines –
If you have a loose or poking orthodontic wire –
If your orthodontic wire has come out form the tube at the last tooth at the back side try to reinsert it with tweezers at home. If you are unable to do this then place a cotton piece or a piece of sugar free chewing gum around that area so that local irritation can be dealt with and kindly take an appointment with us so that we can mend it up.
If your orthodontic wire is poking you, try to push it away from the area with the help of a tooth pick and then cover it with a cotton piece or a piece of sugar free chewing gum around that area so that local irritation can be dealt with and kindly take an appointment with us so that we can mend it up.
Your Orthodontic Bracket has gone loose –
If your bracket has become loose, it will usually be connected to the main wire by a rubber ring in both tooth colored and metal brackets. An eyebrow tweezers at home can be used to re-position it.
If your bracket has come out, keep it safe and get it to us when you come to see us – don’t throw it off.
Your Orthodontic Separator comes off –
Do not panic if the rubber separator comes off, clean that area with a dental floss nicely and rinse thoroughly so that if any piece is left inside can come out easily.
If you accidentally swallow something –
Remain calm if you have accidentally swallowed any of the orthodontic appliance pieces. They will go in the stomach and through bowel movements they will get out of your body. If you feel difficulty if breathing and while you talk – kindly get emergency medical care. X – Ray of that area is required to detect the location of the swallowed piece.
If you break your Retainer –
If accidentally you break your retainer while chewing or otherwise kindly bring it to us, so that necessary repair can be done in time.
If you have tooth or gum sores –
Kindly apply Dologel-CT or Rexidine –M gel on that area. If pain is there take a pain killer which suits you.
PLEASE CONSULT YOUR FAMILY DOCTOR BEFORE TAKING ANY MEDICINE AS HE KNOWS WELL FROM WHICH ALL MEDICINES YOU ARE ALLERGIC WITH.
Minor sores and cuts will heal within 4 to 6 days.
