What Is an Orthodontic Emergency?

While true orthodontic emergencies are rare, they do occur occasionally. An orthodontic emergency is any issue with your dental appliances that an orthodontist needs to address immediately. When you can't wait for your next appointment, it's vital to call your emergency orthodontist and schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

Orthodontic emergencies could include:

  • A knocked-out or out-of-position tooth.
  • A bracket or band falls off.
  • A separator or spacer comes loose.

Other issues are often easily or temporarily solvable until you visit the office. Minor problems you can remedy without an emergency appointment include:

  • General soreness: It's common for your mouth to feel sore after getting braces or having your wires tightened. You can rinse your mouth with a saltwater solution or take pain medicine to alleviate pain. It's also best to eat soft food until your pain subsides.
  • Loose appliance or bracket: When part of your appliance is poking you or a bracket becomes loose, place a piece of wax on the offending part or bracket to keep it in place. If your bracket is removable, place it in an envelope to save and bring to your next appointment.
  • Loose wire: Sometimes, you can take care of loose wires yourself. Use a pair of tweezers or needle-nosed pliers to put the wire back in place. You could also tie a piece of floss around the wire and bracket to hold it in place until your next appointment.
  • Poking wire: You can remedy a poking wire by pushing it down with a pencil eraser or placing wax on it.  

Emergency Orthodontic Care

Receiving emergency orthodontic care will help relieve your pain and keep your treatment on schedule. While many issues can wait until your next appointment, contact your emergency orthodontist as soon as possible if you experience untreatable pain or have broken appliances. Your orthodontist will provide the proper solutions to fix the problems and alleviate discomfort.

"Best Orthodontist ever! We spoke about my options the first day I went to see him. He sent me to a Prosthodontist to assist in my care. He also chose my oral surgeon. I had jaw surgery one year ago and got my braces off in October. My teeth look amazing!! I have referred friends that are wanting to get braces or get their children braces to Dr. Nicolas. I am soooo glad I chose him. Very sweet doctor"
