If the residual bonding material was placed by your orthodontist or their assistant, then they should take care of the issue.

The question is who laced the bonding material. Who ever placed the bonding is responsible; unfortunately, residual bonding agent is common and should be easily carved away from the suspect area.

Without having your pre-treatment records to evaluate, without being able to see the offending material, we cannot possibly provide an accurate answer. This is an educational site, not a diagnostic site. Have you been brushing 2x/day for 2 full minutes by the clock? Have you been flossing or using WaterPik every single day? If not, compromised oral hygiene can create those same symptoms.
