Desert Orthodontics provides emergency orthodontic care in Las Cruces, NM. Call 575-521-0900 to learn more and schedule your appointment.

When your orthodontic equipment is broken or loose, contact our office right away. Although it may not seem like an emergency situation if you’re not in pain, having broken brackets or missing elastics can throw your orthodontic treatment off track or even extend the amount of time you’ll need in braces.

If you already have an appointment scheduled, we still ask that you call to inform us when repairs are needed so we can change the length of your appointment. When you have an orthodontic emergency outside of our regular hours, call our office and follow the instructions provided.
