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?

As much as I dislike going to the dentist because I don’t like shots Dr. Klasinski administered multiple shots for numbing purposes in my last couple of appointments with absolutely no pain. The staff is very outgoing and friendly. I highly recommend Kewaskum Family Dentist.

Dr Sara and the staff at KFD are great! They care about their patients. Dr Sara is gentle and takes her time when working on your teeth. Directions are always easy to understand. My questions are always answered. They go the extra mile to make sure everything is right.

Been going to Kewaskum Family Dentistry for 40 years. Congrats to Dr. Dennis Connor on retirement. The transition to seeing Dr. Sara Klasinski has been seamless. The staff is still great. Dr. Klasinski I feel is very good. The procedures are as comfortable as can be and basicly painless. The cleanings have been great and my recent crown procedure went great also. No discomfort after the procedure.

From the Virtual consultation to the in office visit, everything was great! Dr. K was lovely and explained everything to my son and I in a way we could understand. The staff at the front desk were professional, helpful and friendly. I am very happy I chose this practice for my children's dental needs.
