True Orthodontic Emergencies Are Very Rare
As a general rule, you should call our office when you are experiencing pain or if something breaks or doesn’t feel right in your mouth. Sometimes pain can be caused by a wire sticking out the back or a hook on the brace that is rubbing the cheek. If you can’t make it to our office then you can use finger nail clippers to cut the wire or some wax to cover the hook on the brace. This will temporarily help relieve the discomfort. Then when you can make it to the office Dr Couser will take a look and help resolve the discomfort. When in doubt when something doesn’t feel right, call our office and we can either help you over the phone or have you come in so Dr Couser can take a look. You can always reach Dr Couser on his cell which is located on the business card that was given to you or you can call our office and get the number from the answering machine.
