Instructions & Emergency

After the implementation of the fixed orthodontic appliance, irritated areas in the mouth may appear. Once such areas appear, you can place a special dental wax (that your orthodontist has given you) on the area – bracket that is responsible for the irritation. In that way, irritated areas in the lips, cheeks and tongue are soothed. Usually, the irritation of mouth’s soft tissues goes away after one week, without the need of further action. Washing the mouth with warm salt water also helps during the first days after the implementation of the appliance.

During the first 3-4 days after bonding the fixed orthodontic appliance it is frequent to feel toothache. These symptoms will disappear soon, and the patient gets used to the orthodontic appliance without difficulty. In cases of intense pain you can take a common headache analgesic (Depon, Aspirin etc).

During your meals you must be careful to avoid sudden bites of large and hard pieces of food. When food is hard to chew, you should cut it into smaller pieces in order to avoid bracket loosening. Sticky foods like chewing gums, candy and pop corn should be avoided.

Even when all the instructions are followed during the therapy, there is a possibility a bracket to cut off, or the wire’s edge to disturb the cheek. In this case, please contact the secretary of the clinic in order to arrange an appointment.

Following the rules of oral hygiene is necessary during the orthodontic therapy. Please follow the instructions that you have been given by the medical team, which are related to the duration and frequency of the suggested tooth brushing technique.

In any case and any time, you can call your orthodontist in his mobile number 6948741860.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
