Braces in Solihull & Bromsgrove

Emergency Dentist Solihull & Bromsgrove

Emergency Dental Care

While orthodontic emergencies are rare, they do occur, and it is our goal to make your orthodontic treatment as comfortable as possible.

Our compassionate team at Orthodontics for You is always available to answer your questions and provide information about any orthodontic related issue. If you have a broken appliance, poking wires or experience intense discomfort, we will do our best to book you in for an urgent appointment.

Common orthodontic problems include:

  • Loose or damaged brackets are often caused by eating sticky or hard food. The bracket needs to be replaced or repaired. If the bracket is broken and still attached to the wire, cover it with orthodontic wax, so you are comfortable and then call our office to book an appointment.
  • Mouth sores and tooth soreness, especially after an adjustment can be alleviated with over-the-counter medication. To help ease mouth sores rinse your mouth with a solution of salt water.
  • When your teeth start to move a poking arch wire can irritate the soft tissue of the cheeks. Contact our practice for guidance and to book an appointment.

Emergency Dental Care

Contact us immediately if you experience trauma to the mouth, gums or teeth, infection or swelling of the gums, mouth or face, or severe and unmanageable discomfort.

Do not try to self-repair a damaged orthodontic device. We can restore or replace any parts of a damaged brace system whether it is traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, Invisalign®, hidden braces or Quiksmile.

If you are experiencing an orthodontic emergency, call us on 01527 309509 if you are a Bromsgrove patient and 0121 401 1268 if you are a Solihull patient.
