Frequently Asked Questions

What if I have an emergency outside of office hours?

If you experience an orthodontic emergency outside of our regular office hours, please call our office. You'll receive information on who to contact for further assistance.

Can I go to the emergency room for orthodontic emergencies?

The emergency room is generally not equipped to handle orthodontic emergencies. It's best to contact our office directly so we can provide specialized care and guidance specific to your orthodontic treatment.

Can I wait until the next business day for an orthodontic emergency?

In most cases, we recommend addressing orthodontic emergencies as soon as possible to prevent further complications. However, if your situation is manageable and not causing severe pain or discomfort, you may be able to wait until the next business day. Contact our office for guidance based on your specific circumstances.

What if I have a dental injury while wearing braces?

If you experience a direct injury to your mouth or teeth, it's important to contact our office immediately. Apply ice to reduce swelling, and bring any dislodged teeth or broken pieces with you. We'll assess the situation and provide appropriate care.

I lost a rubber band. Is it an emergency?

Losing a rubber band is not typically considered an orthodontic emergency. However, if you run out of replacement bands, let us know during your next scheduled visit, and we'll provide you with more.

What should I do if a bracket comes off?

If a bracket becomes detached from your tooth but is still attached to the wire, you can leave it in place and contact our office to schedule a repair appointment. Avoid twisting or forcefully removing the bracket on your own.

Can I fix a broken archwire myself?

If you have a broken archwire, you can temporarily address the problem by bending it back into place with a pencil eraser or cutting it with clean nail clippers. However, it's crucial to contact our office to ensure the proper resolution of the issue.

What if a wire is poking or causing discomfort?

If a wire is poking your mouth or causing discomfort, you can try covering it with wax or gently pushing it back into place using a pencil eraser or Q-tip. If the issue persists, contact our office, and we'll provide further instructions.

What should I do if I have a loose bracket or band?

If you notice a loose bracket or band, please call our office to schedule an appointment. In the meantime, you can leave the loose bracket or band in place and avoid applying pressure to it.

What qualifies as an orthodontic emergency?

True orthodontic emergencies are rare, but they may include injuries to the mouth, severe pain, or significant damage to your braces. If you're unsure whether your situation is an emergency, it's best to contact our office for guidance.
