The braces installed in your mouth by Dr. Chris Trockel were designed to realign your teeth through the course of multiple adjustment sessions. If your braces are bent or damaged in any way, it could increase the number of adjustments needed to realign your teeth.

Should something happen, you need to call 918-364-2222 to schedule an appointment at True Smile Orthodontics as soon as possible. In the interim, there are a few things you can do to reduce your chances of suffering further complications.

When he first installed your braces, Dr. Chris Trockel gave you a piece of special orthodontic wax. If a sharp point is threatening your cheek or gums, you can secure it inside the wax to prevent further injury. If you don’t have the wax on hand, you might be able to improvise with a chunk of pencil eraser.

If something is bent or damaged, you should avoid manipulating it or attempting to repair it yourself. Should a spacer fall out shortly before your next adjustment session, you should call True Smile Orthodontics for further advice. In most cases, he will likely recommend scheduling an earlier adjustment.
