Question:

Two of my brackets are loose??????? Help!?

I have braces and two of my bottom brackets got loose today, they're the brackets on the left side of my back bottom teeth.When I go back to the orthodontist will they have to redo all my bottom braces, or they just fix those two? What should I do this is my second time breaking my braces, and I just got them January. Will this increase the amount of time I have to wear braces for? I have to wear them for two years and I hate them soooooooooo much! By the way is there anytime to decrease the amount of time I have to wear them for?

Answer:

They'll just have to fix the brackets that are loose. It will increase the time you have to wear the braces for, because when they put on the wire after fixing your loose brackets, the wire has to be the same size as it was before instead of a tighter size that will tighten your teeth more. There isn't really any way to decrease the amount of time you wear your braces for; just try not to get any more loose brackets.

They will only need to repair the broken brackets, I know because ive had mine for 3 weeks and have broken twice already. My orthodontist said that if they are broken for a long time if can increase how long you have to wear them for by a tiny bit. Hope this helps!
