Caring for your Reverse Pull Head Gear
Sometimes, when we have to move the upper teeth and jaws ahead so as to correct an ‘underbite’ we will ask you to wear a neat appliance called a reverse pull head gear which will attach to your rapid palatal expander appliance by way of elastics.
The elastics will be supplied by the office, so remember if you are running low, ask us for more when you come for your next appointment.
This is easy to take care of, you only have to remember to put in on when you are at home and when you go to bed.
Following the directives of the government and the Order of Dentists of Québec, starting March 16th 2020 to May 1st 2020, all non-urgent appointments whether for elective treatments or for preventive oral care (such as examinations and cleanings) must be postponed to a later date. We will therefore be open EXCLUSIVELY FOR EMERGENCIES for patients with acute pain, infection or trauma requiring immediate care.
If you require urgent treatment and do not have flu like symptoms, such as cough and fever, that you and any close family members have not traveled recently, you can contact us at 514-484-7225. Our opening hours for dental emergencies will be monday to thursday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
Thank you for your collaboration. These directives will be revaluated periodically in light of the current situation.
Sincerely your TGO Orthodontics Team
