Emergency Orthodontist in Wellington, FL, for Emergency Orthodontic Care

What To Do in Case of Emergency

Call our emergency orthodontist in Wellington, FL, as soon as possible if you break or loosen any of your appliances. Please do not come directly to the office – by calling us, you will allow us to create a time to see you. Even if you have a regular appointment scheduled, call us immediately to notify us if you need an appliance repaired.

Loose Brackets or Bands

Call our Wellington orthodontic office immediately for advice if a bracket or wire is loosened. The bracket may need to be re-fitted as soon as possible. You may have a situation that requires cutting a wire or sliding a loosened bracket off a wire at night or over the weekend. If you need to cut a wire in case of emergency, you may use fingernail clippers that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol. Please call our office the next business day, so that we may schedule an appointment for you.

Wire Irritations

Sometimes discomfort caused by a wire on your braces can be resolved by 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 piece of cotton or a small amount of wax. If the wire is painful, you can cut it with nail clippers or scissors that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol. If you cannot resolve the wire irritation, call our Wellington orthodontist for an appointment.

Lost Separators

Most patients lose a separator during their treatment. Do not worry about losing a separator, but call our Wellington orthodontist to see if it needs to be replaced.

Discomfort with Orthodontic Treatment

During the first week after your braces are in place and routine adjustments are complete, you will likely feel some pain, soreness or discomfort. You may take acetaminophen or other non-aspirin pain relievers while you adjust to your new braces. A warm wash cloth or heating pad may reduce the soreness in your jaws. If you are pregnant, nursing or have a chronic condition, please consult with your doctor prior to taking any medication.

Life-Threatening Emergencies

Life-threatening emergencies are almost unheard of in orthodontic treatment. In the very unlikely event you experience a life-threatening medical emergency, please call 911 and go directly to the nearest hospital.
