At Goodman Orthodontics, our mission is to help patients throughout Manhattan, Riverdale, and the greater New York City area achieve beautiful, healthy smiles that they’re proud to call their own. We offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options including clear braces and Invisalign clear aligners, but the most popular treatment we offer is still the tried and true method of traditional metal braces. We strive to provide high-quality care and ensure treatment goes off without a hitch, but accidents can happen – and it’s important to know how to handle them. And if you ever happen to break a bracket on your braces, here’s what to do.
Whether it’s from a fall, an accident during sports, or accidentally biting down on a food that’s too hard to eat with braces, the moment you break a bracket on your braces can be a frightening one. After all, you’re in the process of working towards a beautiful, healthy new smile. Will breaking your braces pose a threat to that?
Thankfully, while breaking your braces does require immediate attention, it’s not the end of the world. Simply keep a calm head and follow these steps if you find yourself with a broken bracket:
Breaking your braces can be stressful, but don’t worry too much. With prompt, immediate action, you can easily mitigate any damage and prevent a broken bracket from derailing your treatment. Feel free to reach out to us at our contact page if you have more questions about handling orthodontic emergencies, or if you’d like to schedule a consultation to pursue orthodontic treatment for yourself, you can request one using our easy online form. We can’t wait to hear from you, and we look forward to helping you achieve your dream smile!
