Damaged Braces Require Professional Repair

By | Braces | No Comments

The braces installed in your mouth at Dr. Muhammad Abey’s orthodontic clinic incorporate several different components. This includes metal brackets that have been cemented onto the face of your teeth and interconnect with wires. Most traditional braces also incorporate bands and spacers.

While these orthodontic hardware components are intended to be durable enough to handle the act of biting and chewing most common foods, they are not invulnerable to damage. This is more likely to be an issue if you frequently eat sticky foods, or crunch down on hard foods.

If a wire becomes bent or some other braces component does become bent or damaged it, could alter the tension applied to your braces, thus complicating the realignment process. This could increase the number of adjustments required to fully improve your smile’s appearance.

If you do notice a problem with some part of your braces, the wisest course of action is to contact Dr. Muhammad Abey’s to have it examined and professionally repaired. In many of these cases, he can simply uninstall the damaged braces component and replace it with a new piece of orthodontic hardware.

If you had braces installed in your mouth at Dr. Muhammad Abey’s orthodontic clinic in Wayne, New Jersey, and you have a problem with one of the orthodontic components, you should call 973-341-3180 to have it examined at Wayne Family Orthodontics.
