Broken Brackets Emergency
An orthodontic emergency is any situation that involves one of the following:
- Severe pain that cannot be relieved with over-the-counter pain medications.
- Any loss of function where the patient cannot wait to be seen during regular office hours.
If any of the above situation is true, please follow these instructions:
- Urgent messages should be left BOTH on the office voicemail (412.366.0776) and then the emergency number left on the voicemail.
- When leaving a number on the emergency number, please leave a time when it is acceptable to receive a return phone call.
In the event that Dr. Komoroski is out of town or away at a meeting, there is a qualified proxy to see emergencies, please contact the office.
Please note, a loose brace is not an emergency. Please call the office at 412.366.0776 for an appointment to secure.
