First things first. If this is a medical emergency call 911.

True orthodontic emergencies are pretty rare, but when they happen, we’re available to you. As a general rule, you should call the office when you experience severe pain or when you have a painful appliance problem that you can’t take care of yourself. We’ll be able to schedule an appointment to help take care of the problem.

You might be surprised to learn that you may be able to temporarily solve many problems yourself, at least until you can schedule an appointment with our office. Just call us at (503) 641-9100 and we’ll give you a hand.
