How to Fix Broken Brackets or Poking Wires


A broken braces bracket is the most common inconvenience orthodontic patients face when wearing traditional braces. The brackets and wires are fragile and can break for a number of reasons:

Eating the wrong foods.
Sustaining an injury to your mouth, according to Arizona-based Frost Orthodontics.
Brushing teeth incorrectly or too vigorously.
Using a toothpick or flossing roughly.
If you discover one of your brackets has broken, follow these steps to ensure it can get fixed with no complications.
