Question:

My brackets keep coming off?

I have braces and the brackets keep coming offOne of them has come off twice Today one of my front ones came offI've had braces for over 2 yearsAre they coming off because I've had them on for a long time?

Answer:

This kinda happened to me also. Are you sure your teeth aren't hitting the other brackets? If so, they can come off eventually from the pressure of other teeth. You can go to your orthodontist and have the brackets re-positioned so the teeth won't hit them. Their not coming off because of having them for this long, it could be the glue, but it's probably not the problem.

It's possible that the glue has weakened over time. You could also be putting extra strain on your braces somehow. Your orthodontist can tell you what to do about this, I'm sure.
