Emergency Care

You probably won’t experience a true orthodontic emergency in Lacey, Lakewood or Yelm, because they’re pretty rare. But since they do occasionally occur to our patients at Whitewater Orthodontic Studios, you should know how to handle it.

Common Issues

The following orthodontic emergencies and their treatments are listed in the order from least severe to most severe. Only the most severe emergencies may require immediate attention by Dr. Leavitt.
