A metal coil for closing space has come off

If you have had a metal coil placed on your brace, you should carefully inspect the coil so you know which teeth it is attached to.

If the coil comes off and you have recovered it, use a pair of tweezers to put it back on. It will need to be stretched a fair amount to go on!

If you are unsure what to do or you are unable to put the coil back on, contact the practice for advice on whether we need to give you an earlier appointment.
