Orthodontic Emergencies

Orthodontic emergencies are uncommon – a loose bracket or wire is NOT an emergency unless it is cutting into you and causing bleeding and pain. Common sense will usually fix the problem…. if there is something poking into the gum or cheek cover it with wax or cotton wool until we can sort it out. You usually only need to panic when you see the ambulance, police and fire department …;-)
