Our Durrett Orthodontics staff members always encourage immediately calling our office for better assistance in the case you need orthodontic emergency care in Tampa, FL. This involves when you are in severe pain, or your orthodontic appliance is causing you pain, and you are not able to fix it.
Oftentimes, however, dental emergencies can be safely and temporarily fixed in the comfort of your own surroundings. Our orthodontist will provide you with wax for comfort if your wires are poking at you and causing you pain. If a piece of appliance falls out, then carefully take it out and place it in a container until you can see your orthodontist. Needle nose pliers are useful for fixing sliding wires. If this seems to hard or is causing you further pain, then please contact our clinic right away for experienced assistance and emergency care in Tampa, FL. Even if you manage to control the discomfort, we still encourage you to schedule an appointment with us in order to get to the root of the problem. This will help to keep it from happening again.
