Call us right away if you are experiencing an orthodontic emergency. Dr. Youngker and his highly skilled team are here for you and can see you quickly. We are available at both of our office locations in North Oklahoma City and South Oklahoma City.
The most common orthodontic problems that patients encounter are loose brackets and poking wires. Pain and discomfort can occur if the problem is not resolved quickly. We encourage you to call our office as soon as possible to avoid issues like pain and unusual dental movement.
If you are unable to see us right away, there are some temporary solutions available. Wax can be placed over a poking wire or bracket. If you have a loose wire, you can use clean tweezers or needle nose pliers to guide the wire back into the bracket.
Please bring any parts of your appliance that may have broken or fallen off to your next appointment.
We are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Most of the time, we can talk you through orthodontic solutions over the phone. It is helpful to understand the parts of your orthodontic appliance so we can provide the quickest and most accurate solutions.
Properly caring for your orthodontic appliances can prevent many emergencies. Make sure to avoid sticky, chewy, crunchy, or hard foods, wear a mouthguard while playing sports, and maintain good oral hygiene.
