a piece of my wire from my braces fell off

Question Posted Sunday June 17 2012, 9:36 pm

A week ago, a bracket at the end of my mouth fell off. My dad tried to clip off the extra wire,but it ended up getting bent downwards. We tried calling my orthodontics to set up an appointment to fix it, but they said to wait until my next check-up (which isn't for another month or so). Earlier today, I noticed that the piece of wire was gone. I don't know when it fell off; the last time I know that it was still there was Monday or Tuesday of last week. I'm really scared because I think that I might have swallowed it. I told my parents, but they couldn't really do anything to help me. Has this happened to anybody else before? And what am I supposed to do? Thanks in advance

I had braces a couple of years ago and had similar accidents all the time, and I NEVER had to wait too long to get something like that taken care of... all I can tell you is to call again and have them give you an appointment soon, as in within the next couple of days, or even just show up & ask if they can make time to fix this (it sounds like something that would only taken a few minutes). They should NOT be asking you to wait another month to fix something, especially in the case of metal and wires INSIDE YOUR MOUTH. Plus, braces are kind of a time-sensitive treatment, & even one little bracket missing for one month can make a difference; they shouldn't be prolonging anything. Like I said, I would personally just show up & ask them to fix it. You're paying them good money for this service, after all.
