Be Ready For Anything

At first, having orthodontic treatment may take a little getting used to.

While we try to minimize discomfort, it isn’t uncommon to experience a bit of soreness when appliances are first put on, or some minor aches as teeth begin moving into new positions.

Yet it’s comforting to know that genuine orthodontic emergencies are rare.

But, since they do happen from time to time, our Alliance and Canton patients should know how to handle them.
