True orthodontic emergencies rarely happen but nothing in life is completely foolproof. Many problems that occur with braces can either be resolved at home or can wait until your regularly scheduled visit. However, some problems require immediate attention from our office.
Dr. Joosse and the JFO team will review common problems and what to do if you encounter them. You’ll also receive general guidelines, like the importance of keeping your teeth clean and certain foods that you’ll need to avoid.
WHEN TO SEEK EMERGENCY CARE
Traumatic accidents or sports injuries to the face, mouth, teeth or gums.
Pain, redness or swelling in the gums, mouth or face as result of an infection
Severe, acute dental pain in any form
