Often the brackets are held onto the archwire by a very small elastic ring – which in many cases are coloured and change at each adjustment appointment.

If any of the small (usually coloured) elastics happen to come off between appointments, this is not a major problem.  If it’s within a week or two of your next appointment then that’s quite alright and of no concern.  If it happens any earlier than that then please call one of our receptionists during normal business hours and they will advise whether we need to see you any sooner to replace the missing module.
