Orthodonic Emergencies

Immediate treatment

Trauma or injury to the face, mouth or teeth is an orthodontic emergency that requires immediate treatment. Infection or swelling of the face, mouth or gums or severe discomfort also requires immediate attention. In any of these situations, seek care right away from the dental office or emergency room. For loose, broken pieces of orthodontic hardware, please call the dental office for further instruction.
