Hi my 13 year old son has just got twin block braces today but am needin a little advice dentist told us he must wear them at all times apart from eating but he has been told to wear them whilst sleeping however the bottom brace comes off very easily when its knocked with his tounge am just wondering if anyone else has experienced this as im a little uncomfortable letting him wear it whilst sleeping due to the easiness it comes off when knocked therefore am worried it could choke him whilst he sleeping anyone any advice ??

Hiya it sounds like it might be loose??

Dd has to literally flick hers off so never had the worry of her choking, she's had it for 8 months and I'm amazed at the results!

Ring them in morning. ....

it sounds too loose to me too. it should fit tightly and not move about.
I am surprised they told him to remove it for eating, when dd had hers we were told this was the most important time to wear it so the jaw gets used to that position.
good luck with it, they are not easy to get used to, but the results are amazing.
