An orthodontic emergency is any circumstance that causes pain, threatens a patient’s health or interferes with the course of orthodontic treatment. Should this occur, please call your Orthodontic Office during business hours or after hours to reach Dr. Daczkowski. Some examples of emergencies include:
- Broken wires that impede another tissue area in the mouth
- Loosened bands
- Unusual oral pain
- Broken brackets
- Allergic reaction to braces
Never attempt to handle an orthodontic emergency on your own. Call your Orthodontist. If the emergency is life threatening, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.
