Orthodontic Emergencies

Although major orthodontic emergencies are relatively rare, when they do happen it is important to seek immediate attention.


What can I do if I have a minor orthodontic emergency?

By comparison, a minor orthodontic issue is something you can usually take care of yourself, or wait until your next scheduled appointment for care.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TREAT YOUR ORTHODONTIC EMERGENCIES YOURSELF, IF YOU FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE TRYING TO RESOLVE THE EMERGENCY OR ARE UNSURE HOW TO HANDLE THE EMERGENCY.

What should I do if I am experiencing abnormal levels of discomfort?

If you have severe pain, swelling or bleeding please call the office. If your call is received outside of business hours and you require urgent care, you will be directed to our 24 hour emergency line.

For your convenience, and the convenience of scheduled patients, it is not possible to handle emergencies on a walk in basis.

We keep time available for comfort visits every day, so if you are in pain you can always be seen that day. As long as there is no pain, these issues do not need to be corrected immediately. We will try to find an appointment within a few days that works well for you.
