When you have orthodontic care, you may run into some orthodontic emergencies. Orthodontic emergencies do happen rarely, however if they do occur, you will be happy to know that our orthodontists are available around the clock to help you. We ask that you call our orthodontic practice West Palm Beach FL whenever you experience severe discomfort, or when you have a problem with your braces that you simply cannot take care of by yourself. We will be able to schedule an appointment with you so that this problem can be resolved. Happily, you may be able to temporarily solve many braces problems yourself until you come to our office for your next scheduled appointment. It is helpful to learn the different names of the parts of braces so that you can talk to our office staff and describe exactly what the problem is. Even after you do fix the problem, we recommend that you contact our office to schedule a time when you come in to have the problem repaired. When you first get your new braces, you may feel soreness in your mouth, and your teeth may feel tender. If the tenderness is severe, we recommend that you take aspirin. We can also show you how to put wax on braces to lessen any discomfort. If an appliance is poking you inside your mouth, place wax on the part that is doing this. If you have a loose bracket, leave it and put wax on it. If the wire comes out completely, wrap the bracket with the tissue.
Do not ever hesitate to call our orthodontic practice West Palm Beach FL whenever you have an emergency related to your braces.
