Orthodontic Emergencies

If you experience any of the following, please contact Dovorany Orthodontics immediately at our Wausau area toll free number, (800) 258-5688.

Loose Bands or Brackets

A loose band or bracket on your braces can generally be left in place until you visit our office. Call the office as soon as you notice a loose band or bracket so we can set up a repair appointment.


A broken archwire, or one that is irritating the gum or cheek tissue, needs to be taken care of as soon as possible for replacement or adjustment. If a wire is irritating your mouth, cover it with orthodontic wax then contact our office.

Damage to Headgear or Appliances

A damaged headgear facebow or retainer should not be worn until it can be properly adjusted in our orthodontic office. Call the office as soon as possible to schedule an appointment to have the facebow or retainer adjusted.
