Orthodontic issue during the holidays?
December 26th, 2012
Millions of patients undergoing orthodontic treatment will not be smiling
this holiday season, and not because they didn’t get the gift they wanted.
These are people whose teeth and/or braces fall victim to the hard, chewy,
gummy or sticky holiday treats.
We know orthodontic issues are never convenient nor timely. If you are a
patient of record, we are committed to your oral health and are available
to you. As a general rule, you should call our office when you experience
severe pain or when you have a painful appliance problem that you can’t
take care of yourself. You might be surprised to learn that you may be
able to temporarily solve many problems yourself until you schedule an
appointment. When working with your appliances, you need to know the
names of the parts of your appliances so you are able to identify what
part is broken or out of place. After alleviating your discomfort, it
is very important that you still call our office as soon as possible
to schedule a time to repair the problem. Allowing your appliance to
remain damaged for an extended period of time may result in disruptions
in your treatment plan.
If you have a orthodontic issue after regular office hours, please give us
a call and follow the voicemail prompts to contact our team! We hope
you’re having a great holiday season!
