We know even
despite your best efforts, the wires and bands on your braces may come loose.
If this happens, please contact Hinesly Orthodontics as soon as possible so that we can check and repair your
appliance. If any piece of your appliance comes off, be sure to save it and
bring it to the office with you.
In an emergency, you can temporarily fix the loose wire by
using the back of a spoon or the eraser end of a pencil to carefully and gently
push the wire back into place. If the loose wire is causing irritation to your
lips or cheeks, put wax or a wet cotton ball over the broken wire to relieve
the pain until your appointment.
Don't hesitate to reach out to us at in our Ann Arbor office at (734) 769-7600 or our Tecumseh office at (517) 423-6300 immediately if you experience any issue with your braces.
