Removing your braces is a cause for celebration. You'll have the straight and brilliant smile you've always wanted. You'll also be happy to learn that getting your braces removed is not a difficult process. The material used to bond the brackets to your teeth is strong enough to allow your orthodontist to control their movement while still being easy to remove when the treatment is finished.

Removing Your Braces: An Overview

First, it's important to note that having your braces removed isn't painful. You might, however, experience some discomfort and sensitivity during the process. During the actual removing of the brackets, certain areas, such as your lower front teeth, could experience sensitivity to the pressure needed to do so.

How Braces are Removed

During your appointment to have your braces removed, the dental team squeezes the bracket's base so the bond is broken and the bracket comes off easily. In most cases, the separation between the brackets and the tooth occurs where they are glued together, leaving the adhesive still on your tooth. When removing your braces, this is the method preferred by orthodontists because it reduces the chance of damage to the tooth's structure and enamel.

Removing the Adhesive

The process of removing the adhesive left behind on your teeth is typically painless. The dental team usually uses the same kind of hand-held dental instrument that is used by a general dentist to repair a cavity. While removing your braces, however, this instrument causes very minor discomfort. In fact, many people note that it feels more like a tickle rather than pain. Only the adhesive is being removed during this process with the tooth's enamel remaining untouched.

After Removing Your Braces

It's natural that your teeth and mouth will feel different after your braces are removed. Some patients note that their teeth feel slimy because they are used to the roughness of the braces. You might also notice that your gums are slightly inflamed and puffy. This usually goes away after a few days of flossing and brushing normally.
