Dental breakage and chipping can occur due unexpected impact or high pressure. For instance, your front teeth will be damaged if a projectile lands around the mouth or if you collide with a hard object. In addition, chipping could occur due to poor habits like biting on hard candy or chewing ice and other hard objects. When this type of incident occurs, you will not only need to think about functional repair — you will also have to plan for cosmetic repair.

You may think that your orthodontic time is done once your braces come off; however, this isn't the end of your treatment as a whole. Your teeth are straight now, but they won't necessarily stay straight. Once braces come off, teeth tend to drift back into their original positions. They'll do this until they get used to being in their new positions in your jaw. So, your orthodontist usually asks you to wear a retainer to hold your teeth in place until things stabilise.
