What should be done in case of an emergency during an orthodontic treatment


Dental orthodontic emergency

In case of injury to your mouth or your teeth, whether undergoing orthodontic care or not, you should be seen by your dentist as soon as possible. 

Broken or damaged dental appliances are likely to occur from time to time during your orthodontic care. If there are any disturbances such as loose bands, broken or poking wires, call our office as soon as possible so we can evaluate the urgency of the problem and schedule any appointment accordingly.

If a removable appliance needs adjustment, call us immediately to minimize tooth displacement.

Dental wax can be used in the midst to ease the discomfort of any cheek irritations or wires that need to be shortened,
