    Patient Forms

    Please print and fill out the forms and bring them to your first appointment.
    emergency care
    loose brackets/bands
    wire irritations
    lost separators
    discomfort with orthodontic treatment
    If an appliance or bracket is loose, call us right away and we’ll schedule a time to see you. If it is a bracket loose, trimming the wire may make you more comfortable. You could use fingernail clippers that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol.
    Sometimes discomfort caused by a wire on your braces can be resolved by moving the wire away from the irritated area with a cotton swab or eraser. If the wire will not move, try covering the end of it with a small piece of cotton or a small amount of wax. If the wire is painful, you can cut it with nail clippers or scissors that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol. If you cannot resolve the wire irritation, call our office for an appointment.
    Most patients lose a separator during their treatment. Do not worry about losing a separator, but call our office to see if it needs to be replaced.
    During the first week after your braces are in place and routine adjustments are complete, you will likely feel some pain, soreness or discomfort. You may take acetaminophen or other non-aspirin pain relievers while you adjust to your new braces. A warm wash cloth or heating pad may reduce the soreness in your jaws.
