    July 12th, 2013

    Our friends at the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) have put together a helpful list that outlines when you should call Dr. Kevin Ison and Dr. David Eichel to schedule an initial consultation. Here are 12 warning signs indicating it’s time to check in with us:

    1. Early or late loss of baby teeth

    2. Teeth that meet in an abnormal way

    3. Mouth breathing

    4. Finger sucking or other oral habits

    5. Crowding, misplaced, or blocked-out teeth

    6. Jaws that shift, make sounds, protrude, or recede

    7. Speech difficulty

    8. Biting the cheek or biting into the roof of the mouth

    9. Protruding teeth

    10. Difficulty of chewing or biting

    11. Facial imbalance or asymmetry

    12. Grinding or clenching of teeth

    Do any of these warning signs fit you? If so, give us a call at 513-772-6500 as soon as possible! Dr. Kevin Ison, Dr. David Eichel, and our staff know orthodontic emergencies are never convenient or timely. If you are a patient of record, we are committed to your oral health and are available to you.
