There are very few true orthodontic emergencies. Most problems can be remedied at home. However, if you have a situation that you cannot resolve on your own, call us as soon as possible so we can fit you in for a repair appointment.
Problems with teeth or jaw structure not fitting properly can cause speech difficulty, premature wear of the teeth and protective enamel and even increase the chance of injury to teeth and jaw joints if left untreated.

We are always excited to meet new patients on their first visit. Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatments. This important 1-hour visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs.
