If you or your child wears braces, it is important to know whom you can turn to for braces-related emergencies. Our Greenwich emergency orthodontist, Dr. Victor Pardi, is here to provide assistance during any number of different orthodontic predicaments. We would like to take the opportunity to inform you about some common orthodontic emergencies and what to do if you find yourself in the midst of one.

One orthodontic emergency that our patients often visit our Greenwich emergency orthodontist with is when a ligature breaks off. The ligatures are the small rubber bands that stretch around your brace’s brackets. If one ligature breaks or pops off, it is likely that others around it will begin to fall off too, so you should contact our Greenwich emergency orthodontist as soon as possible so that you can come in and Dr. Pardi can replace them. Another related orthodontic issue that happens occasionally is one of the brackets breaking off. This usually occurs as a result of trauma to the face and mouth. If a bracket breaks, you should also visit Dr. Pardi as soon as possible. In fact, if you ever experience facial trauma while wearing braces, you should always visit our Greenwich emergency orthodontist after right away, even if you do not think any damage to your braces has occurred. There may have been damage that you are unaware of that could inhibit your treatment process, and so it is best to allow Dr. Pardi to make sure everything about your braces is in tact. Other issues that Dr. Pardi can help with include: mouth irritation from braces, protruding wires, lost ligatures, and any other orthodontic related problem that you may encounter. Our friendly staff works hard to accommodate emergency patients in a time efficient and orderly manner.

Did you know that the most effective time to seek orthodontic treatment for your child is between the ages of 7-11 years old? Many parents think that orthodontic work is not necessary until all of the child’s permanent teeth have erupted, but in reality, you can save time and money by investing in interceptive orthodontic work provided by our Greenwich orthodontist, Dr. Victor Pardi. Interceptive orthodontics is a service that focuses on addressing potential orthodontic problems before they advance to a point where extensive treatment will be necessary. This means that scheduling an early intervention appointment for your child will allow Dr. Pardi to uncover any issues that present themselves, and recommend preventative treatments to address them.

Some of the work that falls under the category of interceptive orthodontics includes: arch expansion, which makes room for permanent teeth to grow in properly, where crowding could have been an issue without the treatment. Our Greenwich orthodontist also often suggests the use of orthopedic growth appliances, which enhances your child’s jaw growth, decreasing the likelihood of orthodontic problems later in life. At Dr. Pardi’s office, we like to consider interceptive orthodontics as phase one of a two-step process. Phase two occurs once most of the permanent teeth have come in, where we then evaluate if further work is necessary. Usually, using interceptive methods first greatly decreases the amount of work that is needed later. Phase two of the treatment process then tends to be much simpler, and therefore much less expensive for the parent.
