Getting braces, or any other form of orthodontic care is one of the “big” events in life for most people. It’s great to get started because it means at the end of your treatment, you’ll end up with an amazing, beautiful smile that’ll be the envy of everyone.

But what happens if you run into a problem during orthodontic treatment? It’s not always easy to know what to do. Fixing other emergency health problems is straightforward – but orthodontics can be murky. To help clear it up, let’s look at what you should do during an orthodontic emergency.

Find the pieces
If you’re experiencing an orthodontic emergency, chances are that you’ve had braces installed by a orthodontist. And it’s also likely that your emergency is directly related to broken wires or brackets.

To help Dr. Galati fix your broken braces, it’s important that you find any of the broken pieces that may be laying around. From brackets to wires, make sure to pick them up and bring them in with you to get your braces fixed.

You’ll also need to make sure that you come in to see us as soon as possible after you run into an orthodontic emergency. Our team here at Galati Orthodontics in Scottsdale, Arizona, has the experience and skills necessary to help you get your braces back in shape.
