Tips for dealing with broken braces and injuries: It is not an orthodontic emergency if a bracket comes loose from the tooth or a separator falls out.

Loosened brackets , or brackets detaching from your teeth, can happen – and neither are serious emergencies . This can result from eating hard/sticky foods, playing with the brackets , or bumping into something with your braces.
Use orthodontic wax to hold the broken bracket in place until you can see your orthodontist. If the bracket is completely loose , they will easily reattach it.
