RIVERVIEW, Fla. (PRWEB) September 19, 2018
Patients in need of emergency orthodontic care are encouraged to call SouthShore Orthodontics and schedule an appointment with Dr. Matt Ahrens at their earliest convenience. Dr. Ahrens is a respected orthodontist in Riverview, FL, who offers emergency after-hours care for serious problems like soft tissue damage caused by loose brackets or wires. He also teaches patients how to avoid orthodontic emergencies before they start any orthodontic treatment.
Patients with braces are more susceptible to soft tissue injuries and other dental emergencies than those without braces. This is because brackets and wires protrude from the teeth and can become caught on objects or cause soft tissue injury if the mouth is accidentally struck by an object. In some cases, brackets and wires may come loose or fall out of the mouth. In many of these situations, it’s important to seek help from an experienced orthodontist in Riverview, FL. Dr. Ahrens performs after-hour emergency orthodontic services as needed to help patients who are experiencing unexpected orthodontic problems.
In addition to tightening loose brackets and performing other emergency orthodontic services, Dr. Ahrens also educates patients on how they can avoid situations that might compromise their orthodontic appliances or oral health. Those who regularly engage in sports may be advised to wear mouthguards to protect their mouths from injury. Dietary changes and improved oral hygiene routines may also be recommended to help patients avoid emergencies and experience the best possible treatment outcomes. Even if patients disregard these recommendations from Dr. Ahrens and suffer orthodontic injuries as a result, they are always encouraged to receive compassionate, experienced emergency orthodontic care whenever they need it.
Dr. Ahrens encourages patients with loose brackets and other common orthodontic problems to receive convenient emergency care. To schedule an after-hours appointment with the respected orthodontist in Riverview, FL, patients are invited to call SouthShore Orthodontics.
