Emergency Care

Doctors

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.
