True orthodontic emergencies could be considered rare, but occasionally minor problems can cause minor discomfort. As a general rule you should call the office when you experience severe pain or when you have a painful appliance problem that you can't take care of by yourself. We will be glad to help you schedule an appointment to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
In the event that an emergency occurs at night or over the weekend, you can call the office and you will be directed to an answering service that will put you in contact with one of our staff members. Sometimes visiting the office to take care of your emergency can be challenging or impossible.
You might be surprised to learn that you may be able to temporarily solve many problems yourself until you can make it to the office.
