Here to Help
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.
The following orthodontic emergencies and their treatments are listed in the order from least severe to most severe, but only the most severe emergencies require immediate attention by Dr. Dietrich.
