Should I get my bracket repaired immediately if it is important?

The reason why I'm asking is that the bracket that needs to get repaired , has an elastic band on it.So should I notify my orthodontist immediately?

Yes, your bracket is an important segment of your orthodontic treatment. While one bracket may not cause a severe interruption in your orthodontic treatment, it can delay movement of your teeth. Please contact your orthodontist's office for it to be placed back on.All the best,
