What to Do in an Orthodontic Emergency

  1. Call Our Office. The first step you should always take in the middle of an orthodontic emergency is to call our office. We try to fit all of our patients with urgent needs in as soon as possible to minimize discomfort. Over the phone, we’ll also walk you through first aid guidance and steps we advise you to take to manage your situation until you reach us.
  2. See Dr. Hall for an Emergency Examination. Once you arrive at our office, Dr. Tom Hall and our experienced dental staff will get to work examining your orthodontic appliance and smile. This may require collecting diagnostic images, like X-rays. Dr. Hall will review his findings with you, along with his recommended treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.
  3. Get the Treatment You Need. After all of your questions and concerns are answered and you understand your treatment options, you can consent to the recommended procedure. In many cases, our team can quickly jump into action fixing your appliance, but if your discomfort is due to an underlying oral health issue, we may recommend that you visit your general dentist.
