Emergency Info

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.
