Broken ligature

Anyone ever break a ligature on your braces? I just did, and I'm not sure what I am supposed to do. I left a message at my ortho's office, but is there anything I should do in the meantime? Thanks.

Re: Broken ligature

If your talking about the little rubber ligatures that go around your brackets, it's probably not a big deal. There's nothing you can, or need to do in the meantime, either. Your ortho will let you know if it warrants a visit, but I doubt it, unless he was trying to do something special with that particular tooth.

Re: Broken ligature

I agree with tictac...it's no big deal at all. Don't worry about it too much
