Call and discuss the problem with your orthodontist or office staff. You may need to visit right away, or you may be able to fix the problem yourself until your next visit to the office. If an injury (such as a blow to the mouth) caused the problem, seek help right away. Your orthodontist will let you know if you need immediate attention or if the problem can wait until your next appointment.
If you do not have any discomfort and the problem will not interfere with treatment, the orthodontist may delay repairs until your next regular appointment. In any case, call the office before that regular appointment. Make sure enough time is scheduled to complete the repairs.
