Proper care of your fixed braces will reduce the chances of getting tooth decay or damaging your braces during your treatment.
YOU are now the owner of a new fixed brace! Please remember that your fixed brace is quite delicate and you should follow the rules below to help your treatment to progress without any problems.
If the metal continues to cause discomfort, place the white wax provided over the bracket or wire causing the problem, having dried the area first with tissue or cotton wool to allow the wax to stick.
It is essential that YOU maintain a careful brushing technique around your brace. Failure to do this will result in swollen gums and possibly tooth decay. In addition there may be permanent white marks on your teeth around the brackets.
