Broken Bracket Over The Holidays? Here’s What To Do

Orthodontics Marietta GA

Having your teeth straightened usually doesn’t require much work on your part. Once your braces are bonded on, your main job is to keep them clean and it’s even easier if you’re wearing Invisalign trays. But there may be times when traditional braces will require a little more attention. With the holidays coming up, there will be a lot more eating and snacking taking place. If you’re not careful, you can run the risk of breaking a bracket (or two).

Broken Brackets and What To Do

Broken brackets can sometimes seem like a cause for alarm, but they’re really an easy fix. With many people taking time off during the holidays, you might be away from home when it happens or our office may be closed for a day or two. If that’s the case, here are some quick tips to help keep you comfortable over the holidays should you experience a broken orthodontic bracket:

Use Your Wax – Use your orthodontic wax to cover any moving or loose appliances that are making you feel uncomfortable. This will protect your cheek from becoming sore.

Remove It – If the bracket is at the back and it can easily be removed, just take it off until we are able to see you; we will replace it once you come in.

Leave It – If the bracket is still attached to the wire, you are usually safe to leave it in place until your appointment with us.

  • We are beyond thankful for Dr. Kincer and his team!! Dr. Kincer is one of the most honest and conservative Orthodontist, which is a VERY rare find in the industry. We moved to south Florida about halfway through our treatment of 18 months and did not switch orthodontists; that’s how much Dr. Kincer means to us! Our daughter’s smile is absolutely beautiful!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the BEST at what he does!!! Both of my girls have been under Dr. Kincer's care, with exceptional results. They both began treatment at age 8, because of their tiny mouths that required Phase I and Phase II treatments. As a result of his recommended treatment plan, our girls will have exceptional teeth for life. Our family is incredibly thankful for Dr. Kincer's meticulous care that resulted in BEAUTIFUL smiles!!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the best. I am almost a year into my treatment and i have nothing but great things to say. He is so kind and his team is amazing. They are simply amazing and truly care for what their customers need and what their teeth need. I highly recommend Doctor Kincer to anyone looking for orthodontics.

  • Excellent orthodontist. Invisalign was the best money I ever spent on myself. Dr. Kincer is meticulous, thorough, has attention to detail, and fixed my flared teeth. Everyone is always complimenting my smile. He is always timely, professional, and his support staff (Jennifer and Lynn) are really caring. He is able to shave down teeth to make them aesthetically fit my smile and proportions. Dr. Kincer and Lynn really make sure their patients are comfortable-- especially when it comes down to removing attachments for invisalign and IPR, when your teeth are already sensitive. I recommended him to my brother and little cousin for orthodontic work and for their retainers :)

  • After having my braces off for 12 years. I go in today to see my little sister get her braces off, and Dr. Kincer readjusted my Old retainers to fit again!! He is a great orthodontist!

  • Our family has been using Dr. Kincer for the past 10 years. Our oldest daughter has had amazing transformations with her treatment and our second is shaping up to do the same. Couldn't ask for a better, more friendly place.
