Here are a few pointers to help you in a sticky situation.
If Something Is Poking You
For immediate relief, place wax or sugar-free gum right on the spot. If the end of a wire is poking your cheek, get help cutting it with sterile nail clippers. Give us a call, and we will try to get you in for an appointment the next morning.
If You Have A Sore In Your Mouth
Rinse with warm salt water twice a day to help it heal. You can also use wax or sugar-free gum on the braces if you have irritation on your cheek or lip. Schedule an appointment if the sore has not resolved within a week.
In A Bracket Moves Or Becomes Loose
Remove the bracket if you can, or place wax or sugar-free gum on the area. Give us a call and we will try to book you for an appointment the next morning.
If A Chain Breaks Or Falls Off
This should not cause any pain. Use wax or sugar-free gum if soreness occurs. Call and we will get you in for an appointment as soon as possible.
In Case Of An Accident
Call our after-hours line and the doctor will help direct you to get the appropriate medical attention. In case of severe accident, please call your medical doctor to get appropriate medical attention.
