Problems and Solutions You may be able to solve many appliance problems temporarily by yourself until you schedule a repair appointment with our office. These problems need not cause delay in your treatment. Loose Band or Bracket If band or bracket is still attached to wire, leave it in place. If uncomfortable, place wax on it. If it comes out completely, place band or bracket in a ziploc bag and bring it with you to your appointment. Poking Wire Try to push sticking wire down with a spoon or eraser. If not possible, place wax on it and contact our office. Lost Tiewire Or Elastic Tie Soreness Notify us at next appointment. If sore, use warm salt water rinses, and you can take whatever pain medication you would normally use for a headache. Loose Appliance If appliance is sticking or poking place wax on it. IF YOU FEEL YOU ARE UNABLE TO HANDLE A PROBLEM ON YOUR OWN, PLEASE CALL US AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
