how can i apply denture adhesive to braces?

Why?: Braces are fixed, not removable, appliances. If a fixed brace has come loose see your orthodontic specialist asap. If you have been fitted for a removable orthodontic appliance and it doesn't fit well, wearing an ill-fitting appliance can cause harm. See your orthodontist. If you feel you must use denture adhesive, just follow the package directions.
