During any orthodontic emergency, our very first priority is getting you out of pain. When you come to Richter Orthodontics, we make comfort a concern all the time, which means we are prepared to end your suffering quickly.
With our caring team and comfortable environment, you can relax while we repair or replace your orthodontic device or appliance so your treatment can continue uninterrupted.
We provide a number of emergency services that can get your mouth back to normal:
- Mouth Pain – You can relieve pain inside your mouth with over-the-counter medications or a warm compress, but if you’re experiencing discomfort because a sharp wire or orthodontic appliance is hurting the inside of your cheeks or lips, call us right away so we can ease your pain.
- Loose Bands or Brackets – If one of your bands or brackets becomes loose or falls out, we may be able to provide instructions over the phone to fix the problem temporarily until you can be seen.
- Lost Devices – Losing a separator, retainer, or other device is usually the type of problem that can wait until your next appointment. We can replace it and make sure it fits comfortably. No matter what, you should call us first to find out for sure if you need to schedule an appointment sooner.
