Brackets are usually attached to the wire by a very short rubber band. Cut the rubber band and save the bracket. So see the Orthodontist to put it back. If you have orthodontic wax, put it on top of any loose brackets about to fall off. This will keep the brackets in place until they can be properly replaced.

When you get braces do you get the wire the same day as the brackets?

yes, well at least that is for me, my friends, and my sister. I got my braces 3 days ago and after they were done putting on my brackets, they let me rinse out my mouth, then they fit the wire to my mouth and put the colored bands on. If you didn't get the wire the same day as the brackets, there is no point of even wearing the brackets because the wire is what applies the pressure to the brackets and makes your teeth move.

What is a brace for your tooth?

'Braces' are pieces of metal (called brackets) which are fixed onto your teeth. They are connected by a metal wire running through them. Braces are used by orthodontics and are fixed onto teeth. The brackets and the wire put pressure on the teeth and move them into being in the perfect, straight position, leaving you with perfect straight teeth! every six weeks or so the orthodontist will tighten the wire on the braces (roughly six weeks is how long it takes for teeth to move into their new positions) and this will gradually move the teeth into the correct positon. -
