Frequently asked questions

What happens in an orthodontic emergency?

Orthodontic emergencies are rarely serious. The only urgent requirement is to ensure that there is no injury to the gum or cheek. Should such an accident occur, an appointment with an orthodontist is essential. Only a specialist can distinguish between simple discomfort and a more serious problem. If the situation is inconvenient, it is of course necessary to resolve the problem quickly. In some cases, there are also techniques and tools that can be used to resolve the problem yourself, such as wax sticks that can be applied to the affected area to prevent injury.

What is an emergency?

An emergency occurs when the situation deviates significantly from what the orthodontist had initially planned.

Sometimes, such a situation will require rapid intervention by the orthodontist. However, some emergencies can wait a few days.

With this in mind, it's a good idea to consult an orthodontist whenever any changes occur. For example, when a band comes off and wires begin to graze the cheek.
