What should I do if the braces become loose from the arch?
Usually, the braces will remain attached to the arch. If the braces have turned around from the arch and are causing irritation, try to turn them back toward the correct position and fix them in place with orthodontic wax. Do not discard the braces if they do become loose from the arch, as it is often possible to reattach them. Call your orthodontist and inform them about the situation.
