What To Do If You Have A Braces Emergency

True orthodontic emergencies are rare, but when they do occur we are available for you!

As a general rule, call the office when you experience severe pain or when you have a painful appliance problem that you can't take care of yourself. We'll be able to schedule an appointment to resolve the problem. You also have our cell number for evenings and weekends, call if you need us!

Often we can work together to find a solution over the phone to save you a drive to the office. You might be surprised to learn that you may be able to temporarily solve many problems yourself. 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. Allowing your appliance to remain damaged for an extended period of time may result in disruptions in your treatment plan.
