The braces that are applied on my teeth are loose and fall off all the time. I return to my doctor and he places them back, but they fall off again. What is the solution?

Hi. I have an appointment next week to have fixed orthodontics for both jaws. I want to know, can I smoke shisha or cigarettes once the braces are installed?
Dr. Hadi Darvishpour :
Hi. It’s better not to smoke for the sake of the health of your teeth, because since you have braces on your teeth, the risk of tooth decay increases as a result of poor oral hygiene during the orthodontic treatment.
