Can My Teeth Fall Out With Braces?

[dt_gap height=”25″ /]

The question I am answering today is: Can my teeth fall out with braces?

This is not a question you get every day. However, your teeth should never fall out with your braces. As long as you maintain proper care of your teeth during your treatment, this should not be an issue. The only time we worry about loose teeth and any kind of risk of teeth falling out with braces is a patient with extreme periodontal disease. That means the teeth are not fully anchored to the bone. These patients, however, should never start orthodontic treatment without periodontal therapy first.
