My braces wire is pushing my bracket/teeth.

My arch wire went below my bracket. I feel as if it's pushing my teeth out a little and it feels uncomfortable. Is this an emergency? What should I do?

Answer: Braces Wire Out of Bracket

By Sarah h

Anytime you lose a bracket or a wire becomes dislodged, you should call and report it to your orthodontist. They will determine from the information you provide, if you need to come into the office immediately or if it can wait until your next orthodontic check up. If the wire has become dislodged from the bracket, more than likely you will need to have it corrected immediately. If not, it is very possible it can shift your teeth in another direction or out of the current alignment. This will in turn prolong your treatment.
