In orthodontics, we are lucky enough to not have any urgent emergencies. The most common “emergencies” that occur are:

1) A broken bracket- To handle this, we recommend to put wax on the broken bracket for comfort, contact our office to schedule a repair.

2) A long wire- We recommend using cuticle cutter to trim the wire and use wax to alleviate discomfort. Call our office to schedule a repair, if needed.

Wah la! Those are the most common occurrences and the easiest way to handle them!
