Have you ever found yourself in a dire dental dilemma, wondering who to call? At Hemphill Orthodontics, we know that orthodontic emergencies can pop up when you least expect them. Whether it’s a broken bracket or a lost aligner, Dr. Hemphill and our dedicated team in Celina are always ready to turn that frown upside down. We’re here to create beautiful smiles and keep them shining, too!
Braces work tirelessly to align and perfect your smile. But even orthodontic warhorses like braces can occasionally run into a snag. Take a broken bracket, for example. It might happen while you’re enjoying a snack. But don’t worry; Dr. Hemphill and the team at Hemphill Orthodontics have seen it all before. A quick visit to our Celina office, and we’ll have that bracket back in action, no fuss, no muss.
Then there’s the infamous poking wire. If that wire decides to poke out and say hello, it can be more than a minor annoyance. The good news? It’s nothing a pair of nail clippers at home can’t handle temporarily. And for a more permanent fix, we’re just a phone call away. We’ll trim or reposition that wire, and it’ll be back to being a friend, not a foe.
Preventing these little surprises is all about playing it safe. Regular check-ups with Dr. Hemphill can keep those wires in place, and being gentle with your food choices can prevent those brackets from breaking.
Aligners work undercover to reposition your teeth, but what happens if one goes missing? Losing an aligner can feel like a mini-crisis, but don’t worry! At Hemphill Orthodontics, we’ve got your back (or, more specifically, your teeth!).
Imagine you’ve just enjoyed a delightful meal. But then…oh no! Your aligner has vanished! It’s not in its case, and panic sets in. First things first, take a deep breath. Dr. Hemphill and our Celina team are just a call away. We’re ready to whip up a new aligner and keep your smile transformation going right under everyone’s noses.
Preventing a lost aligner is as simple as always keeping it in its case when not in use. Please think of the case as its secret hideout, a place where it’s safe and sound. And if you’re worried about misplacing it, consider keeping a spare case in your bag or car. It’s like having a backup plan for your backup strategy!
Aligners are all about convenience and discretion, but they still need a little TLC. With a bit of care and the support of Hemphill Orthodontics, you can keep those aligners on track and your smile on the path to perfection. After all, even amazing aligners need a helping hand sometimes!
Retainers and Expanders Emergencies
Retainers and expanders are like the trusty sidekicks in orthodontics. Each plays a vital role in maintaining and enhancing your smile. But even sidekicks can stumble, and that’s where Dr. Hemphill and our team at Hemphill Orthodontics come in.
Let’s talk about that retainer first. It’s your smile’s best friend, keeping everything in place. But what if it goes missing? Losing a retainer can feel like losing a part of the team, but don’t worry, we’re here to save the day. A quick call to our Celina office, and we’ll have a new one ready for you in no time. To keep that retainer safe, treat it like a treasure. When it’s not in your mouth, it should be in its box, safe and sound. We always say, “It’s either in your face or in the case!”
Now, onto expanders. These handy devices work wonders in creating room for a perfect smile, but they need a minor adjustment now and then. If something feels off with your expander, don’t try to fix it yourself. Please think of us as the expander experts, ready to make those necessary tweaks and get everything back on track.
Hemphill Orthodontics is always on call for a retainer rescue or an expander emergency. We’re here to ensure your orthodontic journey is smooth sailing, with a perfect smile as the ultimate destination!
General Orthodontic Emergencies
Orthodontic adventures aren’t just about braces, aligners, retainers, and expanders. Sometimes, life throws a curveball, and you find yourself in a general orthodontic emergency. It could be a mouth injury during a friendly game of soccer. Or, it could be a fall that’s left you with more than just a bruise. When orthodontic appliances are involved, things get more complicated. But fear not, for Hemphill Orthodontics is here to catch that curveball!

But we have the tools and expertise to turn that mishap into a minor hiccup. We’ll assess the damage, make the necessary repairs, and have you back on the field in no time.
