Call or text us right away if you experience an orthodontic emergency, like a broken or lost appliance, even if you have a regularly scheduled appointment soon. We’ll guide you to manage the problem until you can come in to see Dr. Liy.
The most common orthodontic emergencies are broken brackets or poking wires on braces. You can prevent most of these problems by following our food recommendations and care advice. Still, wires and brackets sometimes break even when you are being careful with what you eat and how you chew. Don’t stress. Get in touch with us right away to fix the problem and avoid treatment delay.
