Loose brackets or brackets detached from your teeth can happen. This can result from eating hard/sticky foods, playing with the brackets, bumping into something with your braces, or from a multitude of other reasons.
This is not a serious emergency and does not impose on the effectiveness of your braces.
If you have a loose bracket or if a bracket breaks, call our office to fix it. In the meantime, leave it in place and cover it with wax if needed. If the bracket breaks off entirely, you can carefully remove it and we will repair it during your next appointment.
