Emergency Info

Boy with braces smilingHere at Meister Orthodontics we proudly offer comprehensive orthodontic care to patients in and around St. Paul, Minnesota including Mendota, Mendota Heights and Roseville. If you experience an orthodontic emergency that you cannot resolve on your own, call us as soon as possible so that we may fit you in for a repair appointment. In the meantime, this feature can help resolve minor problems you may encounter during your orthodontic treatment.

Sore Teeth

If your teeth are sore after a visit…You may take acetaminophen or other non-aspirin pain relievers while you adjust to your new braces. A warm washcloth, heating pad or warm salt-water rinses may reduce the soreness in your jaws.

Wire Irritation

If your braces cause irritation… Try moving the wire away from the irritated area with a cotton swab or eraser. If the wire will not move, try covering the end of it with a small piece of cotton or a small amount of wax. If the wire is painful, you can cut it with nail clippers or scissors that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol.

Loose Bracket

If the main wire or a bracket comes loose… First, call our office to see if the bracket needs to be re-fitted. If you have a situation where you must cut the wire or slide a bracket off the wire, you may use fingernail clippers that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol. Please call our office on the next business day to schedule a repair appointment.

Lost Separator

If a separator comes out… Call our office to see if needs to be replaced. Some patients may lose a separator during treatment, which is common.
