At King Orthodontics, we know orthodontic emergencies are never convenient nor timely. If you are a patient of record, Drs. King and our team are committed to your dental health and are more than willing to see you after hours or over the weekend. As a general rule, you should call the office when you experience severe pain or when you have a painful appliance problem that you can’t take care of yourself. We’ll be able to schedule an appointment to resolve the problem. If you have a orthodontic emergency after regular office hours, please give us a call. If you are calling us after hours, please follow the emergency prompts to learn how you may be able to solve the problem yourself, or, if you cannot, how to contact Drs. King and team.

Common issues include:

  • Broken Brace

You might be surprised to learn that you may be able to temporarily solve many problems yourself until you visit our office.
