Prosper & Melissa Emergency Dental Care
Urgent Oral Services
Orthodontic emergencies are quite rare but when they occur, it’s important to get immediate treatment before the problem worsens. General soreness is common with most orthodontic procedures and patients are expected to feel minor aches when their teeth are shifting into the correct position. As a general rule, if you’re experiencing any type of severe pain that is interrupting you from normal activities, it’s most likely a dental emergency and you should get in touch with our team as soon as possible.
Am I Having a Dental Emergency?
The first step in determining an orthodontic emergency is to rate your pain and determine if it’s a problem that you can take care of through the phone, or one where you may need to come into the office. Either way, give us a call and we’ll give you the necessary advice as well as schedule an appointment if needed.
Common orthodontic emergency treatments include:
- Lost wire or rubber band – rubber bands are used to hold the wire in your brackets, and both are extremely critical in positioning the alignment of your teeth. If one is lost or broken, call us right away.
- Knocked out or broken bracket – in a case where your bracket or tooth has been severely damaged, contact us ASAP. Delaying repair will extend your treatment time and your teeth may shift out of position
- Mouth soreness – although this is not considered an urgent emergency, in some cases, patients may experience severe irritation in the cheeks, lips, or gums. We recommend applying a small amount of topical anesthetic using a cotton swab to reduce pain. If this still doesn't help, give us a call.

“I chose to see Dr. Bietsch from a referral from a friend. I am so happy that I did. The entire consult was all about my son and never about the doctor. I was so impressed that I chose to see him myself for some orthodontic work.”- Amy
“We love Dr. Bietsch's office. It's very easy to find a qualified orthodontist, but more difficult to find the combination of highly qualified, and caring. I feel like going above and beyond, is just normal for Dr. Bietsch and his staff.”- Kelly
“I was walked through each x-ray, necessary procedure and plan to align a jaw, straighten teeth, and make sure both my children and I were going to be happy with the results. Very impressed.”- Aimee
