A Guide through Orthodontic Treatment
Brace Removal  & Orthodontic Emergencies
Brace Removal ('Debonding')
This   is   where   I   will   remove   your   brace,   or   in   the   case   of   invisalign,   you   finish   your   last set    of    aligners.    Much    like    in    your    appointment    for    Records    at    the    beginning    of treatment,   my   orthodontic   nurse   Magda   will   take   photos   and   more   moulds   of   the teeth. These are used as a record of ‘before and after’ . The moulds are sent off to a laboratory to make plastic retainers.
Orthodontic Emergencies
There   are   very   few   true   orthodontic   emergencies   however   sometimes   a   bracket   can come   off   or   you   may   feel   a   wire   sticking   into   your   cheek.   If   you   do   break   a   bracket   off or   damage   a   wire,   book   an   appointment   and   I’ll   refit   it.   It   is   good   to   remember   what you were doing so you can prevent it from happening again. Please   see   this   video    for   tips   on   how   to   deal   with   common   emergencies   which   may be   especially   useful   if   you   can’t   come   in   to   see   me   within   a   few   days.   Using   a   nail clipper on wires that are digging in is recommended providing you’re very careful.
