Travelling aboard for 6 months

#1 Post by HerBraces2016 »

Hi,
I am wearing braces since 6 months ..and suddenly i got the opportunity to travel aboard for 6 months.
I don't want to remove the braces because i don't want to my teeth to become bad again..but I am afraid that a bracket fell off while I am aboard... less than 10 days to my travel date and I got an appointment to see the doctor on monday ...but I need to know what do you think the best option here

Thanks!

Depends on where you are traveling. Most countries have orthodontists that could help in case of needed repairs.

And you can always take your own ligatures and change them every month.

Also, dentakit.com, the sponsor of this board, has an emergency kit that looks pretty cool.
