Emergency Orthodontic Care Tips

Posted .

Getting braces, or any other form of orthodontic care is one of the “big” events in life for most people. It signals that an amazing, award-winning smile is just over the horizon – and who doesn’t want that?

But what happens if you run into a problem during orthodontic treatment? It’s not always easy to know what to do. Fixing other emergency health problems is straightforward. Orthodontic emergencies, though, aren’t as straightforward. That’s why we put this post together.

Find the pieces
If you’re experiencing an orthodontic emergency, chances are that you’ve had braces installed by a orthodontist. A typical emergency here involved either your wires or brackets.

To help Dr. E. Glenn Glassman fix your broken braces, it’s important that you find any of the broken pieces that may be laying around. Whether it’s just pieces or an entire bracket, it’s important to bring everything you can.
