How about the small iron band off the tooth band?

Every summer vacation, not limited to orthodontics, Beijing Stomatological Hospital will be packed with twelve year old children and their parents. The winter holiday this year is no exception, so many children wearing orthodontic appliance, it is often said that the "mouthpiece", "braces". Now wearing the most common appliance is composed of metal brackets and metal wire, the children called "iron teeth tooth".
But the winter vacation has not finished, the problem has come, many orthodontic children because of appliances on the "small iron sheet" fall off, parents asked, this situation needs to go to the hospital for further consultation?
In this regard, Beijing Stomatological Hospital, Wang Hongmei, director of Orthodontics, said, this phenomenon is very common in the daily outpatient. These "small pieces of iron" (brackets) are attached to the surface of the teeth by bonding agents. They will be removed at the end of the treatment, so they should not be "sticky" too strong. If the appliance has encountered a large external force in the mouth, such as gnawing the bones, nuts and so on, it will easily fall off.
Director Wang said, if only the individual brackets in the mouth, no special discomfort, in fact, is not to run a special trip to the hospital, collect the "iron", visit to the doctor, the doctor will be re bonding according to the situation. If the loss of more, and from the appointment of consultation time is still very long, then can not be ignored, a large number of brackets fall off, the teeth will lose control, affecting the treatment effect.
Orthodontic treatment usually takes about two years time, due to the tooth surface bracket and arch wire, connecting position in the appliance and the teeth are more likely to accumulation of food residues, if you brush your teeth brush is not clean, in the course of time, it will induce dental caries or periodontal disease. Therefore, director Wang Hongmei reminded small patients, wearing orthodontic appliances, the most important thing is to adhere to three meals after serious brushing, and if the conditions permit, after eating snacks, but also brush your teeth. Only at the end of orthodontic treatment can you get a healthy, regular, white tooth
