Emergency Care

Even though you are careful, you may occasionally damage your appliances. We want our patients to be informed of problems that may occur, and understand how to solve them, at least temporarily, until it is possible to return to our office.

Loose band or bracket

If a band or bracket comes loose from the tooth, call our office for an appointment. While a tight band or bracket actually protects a tooth from decay, a loose band or bracket is extremely dangerous and decay can occur under it very rapidly. If the band or bracket is still attached to a wire, leave it in place and apply wax if there is discomfort. If the band or bracket comes completely out, place it in an envelope and call for an appointment.

Broken archwire

If the main archwire breaks (the one that goes all the way around the outside of your braces) call our office for an emergency appointment.

Loose wire

Try to place the wire back in the tube. Place wax over it if there are any discomfort and call for an appointment.

Poking wire

Sometimes a poking wire can be safely turned down so that it no longer causes you discomfort. Try to tuck the wire back in and out of the way with the blunt end of a toothbrush, or some other smooth object. If you are unable to take care of a poking wire, apply wax and call our office for an appointment.

Lost tie-wire or elastic tie

This is not a real emergency, but please notify an assistant at your next appointment.

Soreness

Soreness during treatment is to be expected. Warm salt-water rinses and Advil are helpful in relieving soreness.

Accidents involving teeth

Contact our office immediately, or contact your general dentist.

Please remember: If you are involved in contact sports, a regular mouth guard can be fitted over your braces for added protection.
