What is an orthodontic emergency?
An orthodontic emergency may include:
- Trauma to your face or jaw
- Severe pain that won’t go away
- Excessive bleeding
- Sudden swelling of your face or mouth
- Trouble breathing
If a bracket or wire breaks or comes loose, this is not a true emergency, but we would like you to contact our team so we can advise you if we need to schedule a special appointment for repairs. We can also instruct you on quick fixes you can complete at home in the meantime.
What should I do if I’m having an orthodontic emergency?
Contact our team straight away at 949-561-1088 if you are having an emergency. We can get you in to our office, or instruct you on the best next steps. If you or your child has suffered severe trauma or bleeding, please get yourself to the nearest emergency room.
