Why do my braces keep breaking?

almost every time I get new braces the wires come out and the brackets pop off. I don't eat anything sticky or that I'm not supposed to with braces.

When I first got my braces that happened with me too, I realized it was because the rubber band, the colored (if u have color) band over the bracket popped off. If those bands pop of then the wire won't stay in place because the bands secure the wire in the bracket. You should ask your orthodontist to put it back on for you.

Well, its probably not your fault if it keeps happening. It could be your dentist or maybe your teeth just hate the braces. :)

Maybe your grinding your teeth in your sleep and putting pressure on your braces
