Orthodontists examine patient x-rays and photos taken of the patients bite externally to determine the severity

of the malocclusion and decide upon the most suitable form of treatment. Patients receiving orthodontic care

range from those seeking treatment for not only health reasons but also for cosmetic reasons. Other health problems

can occur as a result of improper jaw and teeth alignment and can range from breathing problems such as snoring and

sleep apnea to affecting the way a patients speaks.

Orthodontists use a range of different techniques depending on the patients diagnosis after assessing X-rays of the teeth

and jaw and using molds to assess the treatment from start to completion.

Separators or Spacers

Separators are little rubber doughnuts that may be placed between your teeth to push them apart

so that orthodontic bands may be placed during your next appointment. The separators will be removed

before we place the bands. Separators do not mix well with sticky foods, toothpicks, or floss.

The palatal expander “expands” (or widens) your upper jaw by putting gentle pressure on your upper molars each

time an adjustment is made. The animation below will instruct you about when and how to adjust your expander.

When you achieve the desired expansion, you will wear the appliance for several months to solidify the expansion

and to prevent regression.

Loose Wire

Using a tweezer, try to put your wire back into place. If doing this and using wax doesn’t help, as a last resort use a small

fingernail clipper to clip the wire behind the last tooth to which it is securely fastened. If your discomfort continues, place wax on it.

Loose Bracket

If your bracket or band is still attached to the wire, you should leave it in place and put wax on it. If the wire comes out entirely,

wrap the bracket with a tissue

Poking Wire

Using a pencil eraser, push the poking wire down or place wax on it to alleviate the discomfort.

The lips, cheeks and tongue may also become irritated for one to two weeks as they toughen and become accustomed

to the surface of the braces. You can put wax on the braces to lessen this. We’ll show you how!
