Accidents happen. Emergencies happen. Life happens. During your orthodontic treatment, you may encounter an unexpected emergency. Most common orthodontic emergencies are minor and do not require a visit to the emergency room. These emergencies can be resolved with a visit to our Johnson City orthodontist office.
(If you find yourself experiencing an unfortunate trauma that is not a common orthodontic emergency, we urge you to visit the emergency room immediately.)
If a bracket or wire pops out of place, a rubber band comes off your braces, or you require a braces emergency appointment of any kind, don’t panic! We offer a 24/7 emergency line, because your needs are our top priority.
For any emergency you experience, chances are good that we’ve dealt with a similar dental emergency. We encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jewett at your earliest availability, or give us a call on our emergency line. We want to prevent further damage to your mouth or appliance, and we want to relieve your discomfort as soon as possible.
