Got a poking wire, a loose bracket, or other problem with your braces? This Orthodontic Emergency Kit can keep you comfortable until you get over to your orthodontist.
Each Orthodontic Emergency Kit contains:
- An Orthodontic Cutter
- A Push Stick
- A Container of Dental Wax
- A Mouth Mirror
- An Alcohol Wipe
- A booklet with full instructions
Keep it in your car, desk, or at home for a fast fix. The Kit zips around on three sides and opens flat like a book, and measures approx. 8" X 5". The case is made of water resistant vinyl. Using this Kit, you can cut a poking tie wire or arch wire, temporarily fix a loose bracket or band, or push your arch wire back into place. This Kit is intended for "emergency" maintenance on your braces. You should make an appointment to see your orthodontist or dentist afterwards.
Take this Kit with you to your orthodontist or dentist for more thorough in-person instructions on how to use the items in your Kit.
When cutting tie wires or arch wires, please be careful not to swallow any tiny pieces of wire. Use a tweezer and let someone help you, if possible. When in doubt, wait and let your orthodontist do it for you.
This Kit is intended for adult use
on metal or ceramic braces. It will not work for Invisalign or other clear plastic braces.
