Using the back of a spoon, tweezers, or another clean tool, attempt to work the wire back into place. If needed, you can tie it in place with floss. If nothing works, you can clip with wire behind the last spot it is fastened to. Then, call us so we can make a more permanent fix.
Types of Retainers
Which Is Best?
No retainer style is right for every patient. Removable retainers can get lost. Wire retainers can make adjustments, where aligner style ones cannot. Fixed retainers mean brushing and flossing around them.
In the end, it depends on the needs of the patient. We will help you determine which is right for you.
