Are You Experiencing an Orthodontic Emergency?
Orthodontic emergencies are few and far between, but when they do happen, our orthodontic team is available to assist you. We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible if you experience severe pain or a troublesome appliance problem that cannot be fixed at home. We will help you schedule an appointment with the orthodontists to address the problem.
You might be surprised to learn that you may be able to solve many problems yourself temporarily until you can get to our office. If there is a loose piece that you can remove, put it in a plastic bag or envelope and bring it with you to your next appointment. If your braces are poking you, put soft wax on the piece that is sticking out. If the wire has slid to one side, you can pull it back to the other side with needle-nosed pliers, replacing it in the tube on the back tooth.
After alleviating your discomfort, it is very important that you still call our office as soon as possible to schedule a time to repair the problem. Your treatment plan may be disrupted or delayed if you allow your appliance to remain damaged for an extended period of time.
