Even if you have swallowed it, nothing terrible will occur. Visit the attending physician, and he will correct situation. The orthodontist also has to make toothbrushing regularly. But it does not mean at all that it is possible to treat toothbrushing and care for briquettes carelessly – the wrong implementation of doctor's instructions can delay treatment.
