Removable Braces

When first fitted, your removable brace can cause some soreness for the first few days. You may also find that your speech sounds different; again, this will improve after a few days.

removable bracesYour removable brace should be worn day and night. You can remove it for meals, brushing your teeth, playing contact sports and swimming.

Your orthodontist will show you how to keep the brace clean, and how to insert and remove it. When you are not wearing it, keep the brace in the brace box given to you.

Be gentle when removing and inserting the brace. Avoid clicking the brace in and out repeatedly with your tongue, as this will cause the brace to break.

If you lose your brace or it breaks, please ring Pristine Orthodontics as soon as is reasonably possible for an appointment.
