Unfortunately there is always a possibility that you will undergo problems with your braces.
If you do not have any discomfort and the problem will not interfere with treatment, the ortho-dentist may delay repairs until your next regular appointment. In any case, call the office before your regular appointment. We might need to schedule more time for your next appointment or plan an extra appointment.
Please call the practice when you have any problem with your braces! Then we can schedule an appointment instead of having to disappoint you when you come directly to the practice.
