Some of the common issues we treat require emergency care, while others can be managed until your upcoming appointment. If the advice below doesn’t resolve your issue, feel free to call with questions or concerns. We’re here for you!
If your bracket, wire, or appliance is loose, give our office a call. Place wax on any pieces that are irritating your mouth to stay comfortable until your visit.
If a bracket or appliance breaks, leave it in place if possible and call us. If the piece can be easily removed, place it in an envelope and bring it to your next appointment.
It’s normal to experience tenderness after getting braces put on or tightened. While this isn’t an emergency, we do want to help you find solutions to your discomfort. A soft diet, salt-water mouthwash, and over-the-counter medications can all help ease your pain.
