Loose Brackets

This is one of the most common problems that plague patients with traditional metal braces. You’ll see, most patients who wear braces will also have to make sacrifices regarding their choice of foods and beverages. Patients undergoing orthodontics will have to say goodbye to hard foods that can break off into smaller bits that will peel away any brackets, no matter how strong the bonding agent is. Please get in touch with us to get that situation worked out and reattach any loose brackets.

Poking Wires

This is another unfortunate and common situation. Orthodontic emergencies include poking wires that come off from their place and start hurting the inside of your cheeks. There are plenty of fixes for this situation, and you might want to learn more thanks to the blog post we link below. Unlike other situations, poking wires may not necessarily delay your treatment. Still, please get in touch with our team to get the professional help required to avoid any additional complications.

Lost Clear Aligner Trays

Some patients choose not to start their orthodontic care without conventional metal braces and instead choose Invisalign® clear aligners trays. They are an amazing alternative for patients who wish for a more discreet treatment option. Unfortunately, one of the common problems is that patients lose these trays when they don’t pay close attention during mealtimes. Lost aligners can set you back and cause considerable delays. Try to get in touch with our office as soon as possible to get a replacement set.

Pain and Discomfort

Regrettably, one of the problems that many patients report is the discomfort they feel during the first few days after getting their braces installed. Patients who wear aligners will also note some degree of discomfort when they switch to a new set of Invisalign trays. Discomfort shouldn’t be an unexpected side-effect of orthodontics, so make sure you’re in touch with your orthodontist for proper guidance on what to take or how to remedy the situation. Please note, though, that if you feel pain and it persists for longer than 3 days, you should get in touch with emergency services that examine you and determine you’re not having a potentially life-threatening problem.
