    Introduction

    There are very few true orthodontic emergencies. Most problems can be remedied at home. However, if you have a situation that you cannot resolve on your own, call us as soon as possible, so we can fit you in for a repair appointment. In the meantime, this feature can help resolve minor problems you may encounter during your orthodontic treatment.

    Call our office to see if it needs to be replaced. Some patients may lose a separator during treatment, which is common.

    If your teeth are sore after a visit...

    ...it is because the periodontal ligaments of your teeth are inflammed when your teeth start to move. This is a temporary condition. It will wear off after a day or so. If your natural pain threshold is low then you might need to have something soft to eat on the first day or if necessary to take some normal analgesics.

    If your braces cause irritation...

    Try moving the wire away from the irritated area with a cotton swab or eraser. If the wire will not move, try covering the end of it with a small amount of brace wax.
