Emergency Care for Braces: What to Do When Something Goes Wrong

Dealing with a dental emergency can be stressful, especially when you have braces. But don't worry, our team at Rangewood Orthodontics is here to help. In this section, we'll provide you with important information on what to do in case of an orthodontic emergency and how we can help.

What is Considered an Orthodontic Emergency?

Orthodontic emergencies can include broken or loose brackets, broken wires, lost or damaged rubber bands, and severe pain or discomfort. If you're not sure whether you're experiencing an emergency, it's always best to call our office and speak to one of our friendly staff members. They will guide you on the best course of action.

How to Handle Common Orthodontic Emergencies

In case of a broken bracket or wire, you can use orthodontic wax to temporarily relieve any discomfort. If the wire is poking your cheek or gum, try to gently push it back into place with a cotton swab or eraser. In the event of a lost or damaged rubber band, call our office for an appointment to replace it.
