Abstract

Complications with orthodontic dental appliances can potentially be considered a dental emergency. It is described as any unscheduled orthodontic appointment for the treatment of an emergency problem with an orthodontic appliance that may affect aesthetics, eating, or pronunciation. Orthodontic emergencies sometimes happen, and they can be stressful for both the patient and the parents. They range from basic situations that can be handled by a general dentist to more complicated cases that necessitate a referral to a specialist orthodontist An online questionnaire of about 13 questions was distributed among dental interns and general practitioners in Riyadh city. Questions were focused on different types of orthodontic complications and emergencies that could occur during daily dental life practice and the proper way of managing them. Significant difference was seen among genders when inquired about the management of TMJ dysfunction during active orthodontic treatment (p-value: .047). As far as the work experience of participants was concerned, statistically significant differences were observed when inquired about the management of labial laceration caused by orthodontic appliance (p-value: .038). Most common practice on receiving patients with orthodontic emergency was revealed to be specialist referral.
