Orthodontic emergencies are rare, but when they occur, we are here to help. If you experience severe pain or encounter a painful appliance problem you can't manage on your own, please call our office to schedule an appointment for resolution.
In some cases, you may be able to address the issue yourself until your appointment temporarily. For example, if there's a loose piece, save it and bring it to your next appointment. If braces are causing irritation, applying orthodontic wax to the bothersome area can help. If a wire has moved, gently reposition it using tweezers or use floss to tie it back in place.
However, always call us to arrange a proper repair as soon as possible to avoid disruptions to your treatment.
For after-hours emergencies, please call our office at (732) 493-8886 and follow the prompts to connect with our emergency line.
