Orthodontic emergencies, while rare, can happen in an instant. When they do, our team is here to help you. Whatever your situation, Dr. DeSantis and the Atlantic Orthodontics team can help you with compassion, relieving your discomfort as quickly as possible.
While you should always call our team when you experience severe pain or discomfort, you may also be able to make temporary adjustments to help you stay comfortable until you can visit our office.
If there is a loose piece, you can remove it and store it somewhere safe until you get to our office. If your braces are poking you, dental wax can be a great way to protect your mouth until we can make an adjustment.
Regardless of your issue, it remains important to contact our office afterwards. Ignoring a broken or malfunctioning appliance for long periods of time may defeat the purpose of your orthodontic care and extend your treatment time.
If you are experiencing an orthodontic emergency, call our team at (386) 672-4981.
