Question:

3 of my brackets fell off in 1 day!!?

I have just had my brackets for my braces fitted and already 3 have fallen off! Is this normal and what should i do about it?? I have a appointment next week to get my wire fitted.

Answer:

Hey, it happened to me too! The day I got my braces put on in fact! I got home, looked in the mirror and heard a pop! I called them and went right back to the office and while checking the rest 2 more brackets came off! The teeth they were on had fillings and one had a crown. The bonding agent they use on regular teeth doesn't hold as well on fillings and crowns so they had to use a different type of bonding agent. A week later a different bracket came off, also on a tooth with a filling. Since then, I haven't had a single bracket come off and that was 7 months ago. It sounds like they may just need to use the stronger bonding agent on your teeth like they did on mine. Do call them right away though, the longer a bracket stays off your tooth, the longer your treatment will take.

No that isn't normal. I had braces twice. Call them or have your parents call them. They put the brackets on before they put on the wire so that they will have set properly. You will have to wait another week when they reapply the missing brackets.

that happened to me when i got my braces, like a month in i had a donut and hte whole top row fell off. considering you have an appoinment next week i'd wait till then or call them ahead of time to inform them your brackets fell off. it's probably because they used to thick of a band.
