There are a few reasons why you may need immediate orthodontic care from Avenue Orthodontics without a scheduled appointment. If you experience an orthodontic emergency in Whitestone, New York, Dr. Eleni Michailidis and Dr. Abraham Chahine can provide prompt and attentive care. We understand the anxiety or discomfort that can come from trauma or damaged appliances, and our team is here to help. Please call our orthodontists right away at 718-767-8400 for any emergency care you may need.

Emergencies

A true dental and orthodontic emergency may occur in the case of trauma to the mouth. If you experience this, and there is a significant injury or damage to your braces, then you should call us immediately to inform us of the situation. We can advise you over the phone on what your next steps should be. Depending on the exact situation, you may or may not need to be seen immediately. Because teeth can be put at risk for major damage or even permanent loss by a traumatic injury that isn’t properly cared for, it’s best to be safe and call your orthodontist right away instead of trying to take care of any problems yourself.

Non-Emergency Situations

Other than trauma, there are few situations that constitute actual orthodontic emergencies (although they may feel like they are at the time). You can take some simple steps to deal with them, and then call our office during regular business hours at 718-767-8400 to schedule an appointment so that we can take care of the problem.
