Emergency Services

There may be times throughout the life cycle of your braces to contact Children’s Dental Village for an emergency appointment. If any part of your braces is damaged, loose or causing discomfort please contact Children’s Dental Village as soon as possible. Below are situations that may warrant emergency care.

Broken or Loose Brackets

Loose or Poking Wires

Sometimes as teeth begin to adjust and move, a wire may begin to poke or stick.  If this begins to cause discomfort, use a Q-tip or pencil eraser to gently move the wire to a comfortable position and contact Children's Dental Village for an adjustment.  As long as you are comfortable, we can see you during regular office hours.  

Sore Teeth and Mouth Irritation

Generally soreness of teeth will subside within 24-72 hours of an adjustment. Over-the-counter pain relievers can be used during this time to lower discomfort levels. If pain continues to be significant an adjustment may be made to reduce the movement of the teeth.
