How to deal with breakages and emergencies
When you have your fixed brace fitted you will be shown a video and given an information leaflet explaining how your brace works and how best to look after it. It is vital you stick to the rules when wearing a fixed brace. Eating the wrong foods, wearing the wrong mouthguard or biting on pens and fingernails can all result in breakages of the brace, which in the long term can extend your treatment time.
Breakages slow down the speed of treatment and your treatment may not progress as planned. Should you detect any problem with your braces, please contact us as soon as possible to enable us to rectify any problems. We will do our best to get you an appointment as soon as possible.
Emergency appointments will be booked when slots are available.
If you have a problem which requires emergency advice outside of practice hours, please call the practice on 01582 465200.
