If you experience a breakage or loosening of any of your appliances, please call our office as soon as possible. Please do not come directly to the office. By calling us first, we will be able to schedule a time to see you. If you have a scheduled appointment already, please call to let us know that you need something repaired so that we may add additional time to your appointment if needed. Please save any items that fall off the teeth (if possible) and bring them with you to the next appointment. Safely store items in a labeled envelope or baggie.
