The Emergency Kit for Wired Jaw and Braces was designed for emergency wire cutting and for short term management of any loose or broken wires. The kit includes:
- Wire Cutter,
- Orthodontic Wax,
- Wire Locater Tool,
- Dental Mirror, and
- Detailed instructions.
It is recommended to keep wire cutters around at all times while your jaw is wired shut, in case the wires need to be cut in an emergency situation.
There is a risk that the patient may suddenly become sick or nauseous
and vomit, and the jaw wiring may pose a choking hazard. If the vomit
cannot escape completely and quickly enough through the mouth and nose,
it can pass back into the windpipe and down into the lungs. This poses
both a choking hazard, but can also cause infection or pneumonia.
