Emergency Care

Orthodontic Treatment in Central Texas

Just In Case

Sometimes, appliances might be broken or bent during your orthodontic care. If there are any disturbances, such as loose bands, loose brackets, broken or poking wires, please call our office for an appointment during patient hours. For your convenience and the convenience of scheduled patients, it is not possible to handle emergencies on a walk-in basis. In the meantime, here are some helpful hints to remedy some of the problems you may encounter until our office can see you.

  • If a tie wire is irritating your mouth, cover it with wax or tuck it under the arch wire with a blunt object like a pencil eraser or Q-tip.
  • A loose band or bracket can generally be left in place until seen in our office. Call us during patient hours, when you notice a loose band or bracket. We will schedule you to reattach the loose appliance if indicated.
  • A broken or poking archwire can often be bent in with a pencil erasure or cut with nail clippers. Call our office, during patient hours, if you do not feel the problem has been resolved properly.

Kind Words from Our Community

Every person on the team is super friendly and patient. My little guy had to have quite a bit of work done but they made him feel so comfortable and celebrated his bravery afterward. He went home telling everyone he wanted to go back to the dentist every day after school. You can tell they love what they do and they genuinely care, most importantly the kiddos can feel it!

My daughter and I love Dr. A. She is so kind and funny we would recommend this Ortho Office any day - it's the best hand down, and we can't forget about Dr. G he's also amazing!
