Does Removing Braces Hurt?

Posted on 7/18/2022 by Star Orthodontics
Does Removing Braces Hurt?You will braces if you have misaligned teeth. These oral appliances are used to straighten and fix the positioning of any misaligned teeth. Besides, braces can close gaps between your teeth and help improve your smile. After getting oral braces, it will take a significant amount of time for your teeth to finally adjust to the required shape. When your teeth have adjusted to the required position, they will have to be removed because they have done their job. When this time comes, you will schedule an appointment with us to have them removed.

The Removal Process

When getting dental braces removed, most people don't experience any form of discomfort. However, dental work can be uncomfortable for some people due to the swelling and soreness that come with brackets removal. The discomfort is caused by the release of pressure from your teeth. Furthermore, your teeth could be extremely sensitive due to the fact nothing is binding them together.

If you notice any discomfort because braces have been removed, you can use pain-relieving medication to feel better. Getting braces removed by professional experts is more reliable because it doesn't result in discomfort. Our dentists are equipped with highly sophisticated equipment that makes the removal process easier. You are warned against trying to remove braces by yourself because it could cause significant damage. Handling sharp objects can cause cuts and increase the risk of infections.

After getting the braces removed, you need to take good care of your teeth. Remember that braces are meant to fix misaligned teeth — you shouldn't do things that can cause misalignments. Avoid biting on hard food surfaces that could increase the risk of chipping. Instead, you should stick to eating soft foods until your teeth are well adapted. This will help improve your oral health.
