1. This appliance is held in place by bands cemented onto the teeth. Therefore, if the bands or wire attachment become loose, please call the office for an appointment on the next business day.

  2. There may be some slight discomfort with the newly cemented bands on the teeth. However, this should disappear as soon as the tongue and teeth have a chance to adjust to the presence of the appliance. 

  3. Please avoid sticky foods such as tootsie rolls, taffy, caramels, or chewing gum as well as hard candy and ice. These may loosen the cement under the bands.
