Last year we discussed the candy crisis one can encounter when they are undergoing orthodontic treatment or already have braces in our [link url=http://myorthodontists.ca/madukebulat_news.php?i=14]What To Do In A Candy Crisis[/link] blog post.
This year, we thought we would remind you of those potential candy crises, to ensure we stop them before they happen.
Dislodged braces are no stranger to the MadukeBulat orthodontics team. Christmas or not, we see kids and adults alike coming through our doors with a wire hanging loose, or a completely dislodged brace.
Even though we give fair warning regarding the consumption of hard, gummy, chewy or sticky candies -and let’s not forget the caramel chocolates too- these treats often seem like a worthwhile risk at the time to our patients, but dislodged braces are definitely an inconvenient hassle for you – any time of the year.
If this happens, however, we encourage you to call our office right away to schedule an appointment. The sooner you have it addressed, the less damage that will occur.
Also, feel free to peruse our Patient Guide section of our website, as it also offers helpful information on how to address braces concerns such as these.
If you have an orthodontic emergency after regular office hours, please give MadukeBulat a call and follow the emergency prompts to contact our team. We are here to help you every step of the way, which includes during holiday treat blunders!
