Have a pokey or long wire?

Place wax to cushion the area or clip the wire with wire cutters or nail clippers. Also try to push the wire back into the bracket using a pencil eraser or tweezers until we can see you. Broken or loose bracket? Place the bracket in a Ziploc bag and call our office during business hours and let us know which tooth the bracket came off of. Some brackets being off are more urgent while other brackets can wait until your next visit. Lost a hook? Try placing your rubber band on the bracket instead. Call our office during business hours and let us know which hook needs to be replaced.
