Home Care for Braces

Braces should be checked once a week to see if they are loose or bent. If a bracket or band comes loose or you break a wire, please call our office so that we can arrange an appointment to have it repaired.

Damaged or Malfunctioning Braces

If a bracket or band comes loose or you break a wire, please call our office so that we can arrange an appointment to have it repaired.  Please try and explain what has happened and be as specific as possible with the receptionist. If you lose your rubber bands, we can mail you some more or drop by the office and pick them up.

Sore Teeth

It is normal for the teeth to be sore for about 2 or 3 days after the placement of braces. Use Tylenol or Advil to help relieve this discomfort. Some irritation to the cheeks and tongue is also normal, however, if you feel anything sharp poking you or sores start to develop, please call our office.

Elastics

Elastics (rubber bands) are attached to your braces to exert the proper force which in turn creates the right amount of pressure to move teeth. For this force to remain constant, elastics must be worn at all times and changed out every day. Not wearing your elastics will only make your treatment longer. Please remember the following:

  • It’s your responsibility to place the elastics on your braces between appointments. Please wear them as instructed. You should only remove them when brushing your teeth, gums and braces after meals. Place them back on immediately.
  • Always carry a few elastics with you. If one breaks you can replace it right away. Call the office and we will mail you an additional supply of elastics if your supply is low.
  • If you forget to insert your elastics one day, don’t double up the next day. Continue on with regular instructions.
  • Elastics will get worn out. Once they lose their elasticity, they will not provide the proper pressure on your teeth and jaws. That’s why it is very important to change them as directed, even when they are not broken.

If your elastics break frequently, a wire or band loosens, or a hook breaks off please call our office immediately. Don’t wait until your next appointment because these problems need to be corrected as soon as possible.

What do our patients have to say?

I absolutely love Dr. Sara and her staff!! I cannot say enough good things about her work and their professionalism. We switched to Dr. Sara for regular dentistry during 2020 and could not be more pleased. We have used Kewaskum family dentistry for several years now for orthodontics with 3 family members. I highly recommend this team!

After going to a Dentist for 30 years in WestBend it was time for a change. I’m very happy I did. The treatment I’ve received has been the highest quality from the complete staff and I highly recommend this group

When I moved to the area 3 years ago, I was trying to find a good and adorable dentist. Many people would tell me about a small family practice in Kewaskum. I was blown away with the work Kewaskum Family Dentistry provided. About a year ago, I ended up moving and was looking for another dentist. I found myself frustrated and at a dead end. All the dentist I contacted where not taking any new “customers” (yes, someone actually did say that to me) I contacted Kewaskum Family Dentistry and I got in the next week! When I went in I was greeted “Hey Aaron, how are you?”, I was surprised they remembered me. It was a awesome experience and I am more than willing to drive the hour for this type of A1 service. They are simply the best choice.
