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.
If you notice any loose or broken parts of your braces, call Children's Dental Village to get them fixed. If you are comfortable (use wax if necessary), we can see you during regular office hours. Otherwise, please call the office and we will see you as soon as possible.
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.
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.

As we continue to adapt to the changing nature of Covid-19, our office routinely monitors the Community Level of Covid-19 as part of CDC public indoor guidance/safety protocols. Currently, our community level is LOW, which means masks are welcome but not required in our office. If you or your child are at severe risk for illness from Covid-19, we encourage you to wear a mask in all public indoor areas, per CDC guidelines. As we continue to monitor our local levels, we will require indoor masking in our office if our local level is upgraded to HIGH.
Children’s Dental Village team members will continue to adhere to Covid-19 safety protocols. The health and safety of our patients and families is our top priority and the clinical team will continue wearing all proper personal protective equipment. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
