Braces are attached to teeth with a special adhesive and tend to sit in the middle of your teeth. If a brace is knocked out during sport or while eating a hard food, the attachment to the tooth will fail. Occasionally, the brace is rotated on the wire and sticks out into the lip. Household tweezers may be used to push the brace around and back up against the tooth. A small amount of wax may be used to then keep it in place until you can arrange to come in and see us to have it fixed.
