Emergency Care

If you find yourself in an unfortunate situation that requires immediate medical attention, we invite you to head to your closest emergency room or urgent care facility for assistance.

If you are experiencing an orthodontic emergency, we can help. In many cases, you can fix the problem temporarily until it is time for your next appointment. For example, if you have an irritating wire poking at your soft tissue, you can cover it in dental wax or push the wire back into place using tweezers. Once you have fixed the problem, contact us to follow up and determine the best time to be seen.

Remember to call us and let us know if you may need a repair, this way we can allocate the correct amount of time to your appointment.

It’s the weekend or after hours? No worries, the doctor has his contact information on the answering machine. If you call and do not get through, leave a message. The doctor or one of our team members will call you shortly to follow up.

Once you get your braces placed, you may experience some discomfort for up to a few weeks. Try rinsing with salt water or taking an over-the-counter pain reliever to ease the discomfort.

If you experience a more severe issue such as an appliance breaking in half or getting in the way of being able to properly open or close your mouth, call us immediately before the problem gets any worse. Remember we are always here for you and will provide the best care!
