Emergency Dentist for Braces

Sore Teeth

Many patients that have braces may experience sore teeth after having braces installed. You can take non-aspirin pain relievers while you make the adjustment to the new braces. A warm cloth, heating pad or warm salt water rinses may help reduce the soreness in your jaws.

Wire Irritation

If your braces are causing irritation, try moving the wire away from the irritated area with a cotton swab or eraser. If the wire will not move, try covering the end of it with a small piece of cotton or a small amount of wax. If the wire is painful, you can cut it with nail clippers or scissors that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol.

If a loose or broken wire from your braces is irritating your mouth, cover the wire end with a small cotton ball, beeswax or a piece of gauze and then visit the dentist as soon as possible. If a wire gets stuck in your cheek, tongue or gum tissue, visit the dentist immediately.

Loose Bracket

If the main wire or a bracket comes loose, contact the dental office to find out if the bracket needs to be re-fitted. If you must cut the wire or slide a bracket off the wire, you may use fingernail clippers that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol.

Lost Separator

If a separator comes out call the dentist to see if the separator needs to be replaced. Sometimes patients lose a separator during treatment.

With any traumatic dental injury, it’s a race against time. Contact ATA Dental Center’s emergency dental care office immediately.
