Emergency Info

Emergency Orthodontist in Sudbury

In the event that something on your braces becomes loose or breaks, it's probably not a true emergency. However, you should contact our practice as soon as possible. We have three conveniently located orthodontic offices in Sudbury, Parry Sound and Espanola and serve patients from the entire Ontario area. Contact our nearest office ASAP during normal business hours to explain what has happened so we can determine the best course of action to take.

Here are some directions for dealing with issues with your braces:

Sore Teeth

It is common to have some soreness or discomfort following routine orthodontic adjustments. You can use a salt-water mouth rinse to help relieve soreness or irritated gums. Simply dissolve one teaspoon of salt in eight ounces of warm water and rinse vigorously. You can also take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as acetaminophen for pain and discomfort.

Wire Irritation

Sometimes wires can irritate your gums. If this happens, try to gently move the wire away from the area. You can also place a small piece of dental wax on the irritating wire end to alleviate the discomfort. If this doesn't work, you can carefully cut the end of the wire with sterilized nail clippers. If the wire continues to bother you, contact our office to make an appointment.

Loose Wire or Bracket

If a wire or bracket becomes loose, please call Sudbury Orthodontics immediately to set up an appointment or for further instructions. If you need to cut the wire or slide the bracket off, use sterilized fingernail clippers.

Lost Separator

It is common to lose a separator during orthodontic treatment. Just call our office for instructions if this happens.
