Orthodontic emergencies are rare, but when they do occur Rivera Orthodontics is here for you. As a general rule, you should call our office when you experience severe pain or have a painful appliance problem that you cannot take care of yourself. We will be able to schedule an appointment with our orthodontist to solve the problem.
You may be surprised to learn that you can temporarily solve many problems yourself until you can get to our office. If your appliance has a loose piece that you can remove, put it in a plastic bag or an envelope and bring it with you to your next appointment.
After alleviating your discomfort, it is very important that you call our office as soon as possible to schedule a time to repair the problem. Allowing your appliance to remain damaged for an extended amount of time may result in disruptions to your treatment plan.
If you are in need of emergency orthodontic care, please contact our office in El Paso, Texas as soon as possible for us to schedule your appointment with Dr. Jaime Rivera.
