How you can help

It is important that you adhere to the advice given to you by your Orthodontist, looking after your braces and keeping your scheduled appointments. All this can help to reduce your overall treatment time.


Fortunately, it is rare to have serious orthodontic emergencies. However, problems may arise in the form of broken or lost braces and long wires. If this occurs, please telephone the practice as soon as possible for advice or an emergency appointment.

Outside normal surgery hours, please leave your details on our telephone answering machine and we will return your call as soon as possible or call the emergency mobile tel 0793919881 if it is really urgent.

Any irritation caused by broken braces or long wires can be minimised by covering the area with soft orthodontic wax until you are able to attend the clinic.
