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.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Kewaskum Family Dentistry. They have taken me from being totally embarrassed to open my mouth and smile to wanting to show my smile to everyone I meet. It’s not just showing off a great looking mouth full of teeth, but even more so how it makes you feel about yourself. The whole crew at Kewaskum go out of their way to give you what you came there for….a great big beautiful healthy smile and the most friendly caring people you will ever meet. It’s easy to understand why they needed to build a bigger facility….can’t wait to see it!Thanks again for what your crew has done for me and many, many others…..Keep going and Growing!!!

I simply cannot say enough great things about Kewaskum Family Dental. The ladies up front were all so nice, welcoming, and knowledgeable. Everything was super smooth and easy. Dr Sara is simply the BEST dentist I have ever gone to! She is so gentle and warm and she explained each step to me in words I could understand. Her assistant Molly was great too. She brought me into the room and just chatted away with me to put me at ease. Anyway, GO, you will be so happy you did!
