An orthodontic emergency is important and should be handled right away. A loose bracket, a broken bracket or rubber band, or anything lodged in the brace or tooth may qualify as a type of orthodontic emergency in Roseville. Madison Orthodontics knows how to fix these and other problem areas that often happen when patients wear braces.
Brackets are an important part of braces. They serve to hold the braces in place with the use of wires. Brackets are bonded with adhesive directly to the teeth. Eating hard or crunchy foods can cause the brackets to loosen and need fixing. If food gets stuck behind your braces, patients can try to use dental floss to get it out. If food has become stuck,, call our offices so that we can remove it. An orthodontic emergency in Roseville is something we try to fix right away and quickly. We use both traditional and Invisalign braces. Traditional braces are the most common types of orthodontics we usually use. Traditional braces are the kind that use brackets, spacers, rubber bands, and other metal pieces that are placed over the teeth and align them into position with gentle force over time. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners made using a 3-D computer graphics program customized to each individuals mouth. The braces should only be removed for eating, brushing and flossing until the final phase is finished and the teeth are aligned. Many patients are very happy with their braces once they are completed.
Our office also has the ability to create functional appliances for our patients. This helps to modify the growth pattern of the upper and/or lower jaws. Functional appliances can help correct overbites, crossbites and underbites.
