If you have a broken dental appliance, it's important to take action right away. Look for any broken pieces of tooth or dental appliances and make sure to bring them with you when you visit the dentist. This is because a piece of tooth or sharp dental appliance, such as an orthodontic wire, can cause irritation in the mouth and, if left in an oral wound, can lead to infections or scarring. Additionally, a broken dental appliance can interfere with your ability to open and close your mouth, or it can be swallowed accidentally. Fortunately, the dentist can help.
They can smooth the rough edges of the tooth, replace parts of the tooth, or repair broken dental appliances. This will help ensure that your mouth is healthy and functioning properly.
