Q: What happens if my brace breaks?
A: If your brace breaks, please contact our friendly reception team immediately for an appointment. Depending on the severity of the break, we may need to schedule an emergency appointment to fix it. Until your appointment, try to avoid eating hard or sticky foods and avoid putting pressure on the affected area.
