We recognize that emergency situations do arise from time to time. Generally, orthodontic emergencies are not true medical emergencies. Examples of medical emergencies include bicycle or automobile accidents, a serious fall or any other blunt trauma no matter what the source or injured body part.
Obviously, broken brackets, loose wires, trauma to the teeth or even tooth-loss issues related to trauma should only be addressed after any other medical emergency has been assessed by a physician and the appropriate treatment rendered.
In the event of an orthodontic emergency during or after normal office hours, please call our office at 239-434-0030. We will make every effort to respond promptly.
