How many times have you had a patient come in with a reported broken bracket? Every day I’m sure! Repairing a bracket is a snap and no big deal these days but how many times have you removed a wire, repaired the bracket and then discovered that there is also a broken bracket on the other arch that you now have to sit back down and repair? That sucks. And the solution to making sure this never happens again in your office is incredibly simple.
This scenario of double timing the bracket repairs can be easily avoided by making it policy in your office to remove both archwires before repairing a broken bracket. This policy is simple, effective and necessary. You don’t have time to waste and neither does your patient!
