Breakages of appliances during treatment

Any broken appliance is considered an emergency, and you should contact your orthodontist as soon as possible.

Immediately call reception after an appliance has broken to enable us to attend to your problem as speedily as possible.

If an appointment is not available immediately, or you are in an area where orthodontic services are not available, please consult a dentist to relieve any pain that is present.  

If no pain is present, and you are not experiencing any discomfort, attend the next available emergency appointment with your orthodontist, preferably within a week. This waiting period should not adversely influence your progress.
