In Case of Emergency
Our doctor and clinical staff are available for you in the event of an injury emergency after normal business hours. Should you have an emergency and require our assistance after hours, please call our office at 603-898-4722. Our recorded message will provide you with the telephone number of the doctor who is on call. Call the doctor and leave a message if you should reach their voicemail. He or she will return your call as soon as possible to assist you.
Occasionally, an orthodontic patient may experience a problem such as a broken brace, broken expander, or a loose or poking wire. We do supply wax to our patients that may be used to cover an irritating brace or wire, however, we understand that there are instances when more assistance is necessary.
Please call us immediately if something has broken or if you have a problem with a wire, brace, or appliance. We make every effort to assist our patients if something is causing discomfort. During regular business hours, we will schedule an emergency appointment for you. This will generally be a short appointment in order to make you comfortable and remove and/or secure the bracket, appliance or wire. Since we work our emergency patients into our existing schedule, it may be necessary to schedule a longer appointment at a later date in order to rebond loose or missing braces, or replace a broken appliance.
Even our most careful patients occasionally have some damage to their appliances. Here's what to do:
