If you experience an accident that involves dental or facial trauma, proceed to your nearest emergency room. Inform the ER doctor that Commonwealth Orthodontics is providing orthodontic care and they will contact us if necessary.
Otherwise please call us during regular hours to make sure we are aware of the accident and to schedule an appointment to check the appliances.
If you are having a problem that is causing severe pain or bleeding, please call the office. Listen for the on-call number and follow the instructions given.
Loose Brackets & Wires
If you have a loose bracket, try to replace the wire into the bracket with your fingers or tweezers. If you cannot replace it, cut or remove the wire and call the office during regular office hours.
If you have a long wire or bracket that is causing irritation, cover it with wax and call the office during regular office hours to schedule to have it clipped or adjusted.
