True orthodontic emergencies are rare, but when they do occur we are available for you. As a general rule, you should 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.
Simple problems can sometimes be easily resolved or temporarily alleviated, while you wait to see us for your next appointment. Allowing your appliance to remain damaged for an extended period of time may result in disruptions to your treatment plan.
