In brief: Relocate the ring

Your orthodontist may repositioning the ring so it is not submerged into the gum. He also may change it to bonded molar tube and eliminate the ring.
Many times, he may elect to remove the ring and treating the gum by either laser, cut back the gum to allow more clearance of the ring away from gingiva.
