Orthodontic emergencies may be rare, but we are ready and willing to help you whenever you are having trouble with your braces.
Any time you have pain, it is important to contact us. Many problems can be solved simply at home, though we will be happy to schedule an appointment with you for further assistance.
If a wire falls off, place it in a bag until you are able to come to our office. If something is irritating your gums, place soft wax on any part of your braces that is sticking out. Whether you are able to fix the problem or not, it is very important to let us know the issue during your next appointment. We may need to take a look at your braces to see if we need to do any repair work to ensure treatment can continue as planned.
