Emergency Care

For situations requiring immediate medical attention, you should contact your doctor or local emergency medical services.

For orthodontic-related emergencies, our office is here to help. Most emergency situations can be temporarily taken care of at home, though. Usually loose brackets and wires that are causing some discomfort or poking can be covered in wax or pushed back into place. Loose and poking wires can be manipulated using tweezers or a pencil eraser. It’s still important to call the office and set up an appointment to have the issue corrected.

In the event of a more severe issue (an appliance breaks, a wire slips loose, or is preventing the mouth from opening or closing) call our office to schedule an appointment and have the problem taken care of right away.

Keep in mind that there may be some discomfort for up to one week after getting your braces on, and for several days after an adjustment. Therefore, it is important to rinse with warm salt water regularly throughout the entire course of treatment. Additionally, taking an over-the-counter pain reliever may help alleviate the pain.
