Your braces represent a serious investment in correcting minor alignment issues with your teeth. Each of your routine adjustment sessions with Dr. Stacee Burson will apply a minute amount of tension to the orthodontic hardware. This will effectively stretch the periodontal ligaments anchoring each of your teeth in its socket.

Certain sticky and hard foods could pose a threat to your braces. This could bend a wire, damage a band, pull out a spacer, or even knock a bracket loose. If your braces are damaged it could significantly increase the amount of time needed to achieve your ideal smile.

In a situation like this, you should never attempt to repair your own braces. This could lead to further damage or even harm your mouth.

The wisest course of action is to call 903-334-8080 to schedule a timely appointment at Dr. Stacee Burson’s orthodontic clinic. In just a few short minutes she can assess the severity of the problem and the best method to repair the damaged braces.

This often calls for removing and replacing the damaged piece of braces hardware. If the damage has significantly altered the tension on your periodontal ligaments, Dr. Stacee Burson might also need to perform a minor adjustment.

If you are in the Texarkana, Texas area and you have damaged braces, you should call 903-334-8080 to have the problem examined and repaired at Orthodontics by Dr. Burson.
