It’s not unusual to sometimes break a wire or bracket when you have braces.
There’s nothing to panic about, but you should take action to get your broken braces fixed.
Damaged braces can cause discomfort, cuts and abrasions inside the mouth and, if left unfixed, make your treatment less effective.

A broken wire or moving bracket can be sharp so you may need to take action to protect your mouth before your Orthodontist can see you.
