Emergency Info

Sore Teeth
If your teeth are sore after a visit, you may take acetaminophen or other non-aspirin pain relievers while you adjust to your new braces. A warm wash cloth, heating pad or warm salt water rinses may reduce the soreness in your jaws.
Wire Irritation
If your teeth are sore after a visit, you may take acetaminophen or other non-aspirin pain relievers while you adjust to your new braces. A warm wash cloth, heating pad or warm salt water rinses may reduce the soreness in your jaws.
Loose Bracket
If the main wire or a bracket comes loose, first, call our office to see if the bracket needs to be refitted. If you have a situation where you must cut the wire or slide a bracket off the wire, you may use fingernail clippers that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol. Please call our office on the next business day to schedule a repair appointment.
Lost Separator
If a separator comes out, you should call our office to see if it needs to be replaced. Some patients may lose a separator during treatment, which is common.
