Question:

My bracket on my furthest bottom tooth broke. What do I do?

I have Damon braces. The furthest bracket broke but the wire was never fully in the bracket so I don't understand how it may have contributed to my teeth getting straighter. I think it was only there to hold the wire away and keep it from irritating my gums. Should I contact my dentist for an appointment and risk being charged a fee that could be avoided or wait until my next visit?

Answer:

Hi brackets are devices used in the orthodontic industry that help align and straighten teeth and help to position them with regard to a person’s bite, while also working to improve dental health. They are often used to correct under bites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, cross bites, open bites, deep bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw The application of braces moves the teeth as a result of force and pressure on the teeth. There are four basic elements that are needed in order to help move the teeth. In the case of traditional metal or wire braces, one uses brackets, bonding material, arch wire, and ligature elastic, also called an “O-ring”[2] to help align the teeth. So dont neglect .the entire treatment depends on braces See ur doc n get it fixed
