Does Removing Braces Hurt?

Posted on 9/19/2022 by Star Orthodontics
Does Removing Braces Hurt?Braces are a type of orthodontic appliance that is used to straighten and fix the positioning of misaligned teeth. Braces can also close gaps between your teeth and help improve your smile. After getting braces, it can take as little as a few months or as long as several years for your teeth to adjust to the correct positions. When your teeth have finally adjusted to the correct position, we will ask you to schedule an appointment to remove the braces.

The Removal Process

When getting braces removed, most people don't experience any discomfort. However, the dental work can be a bit uncomfortable for some people due to the soreness that comes after brackets are removed. This is mostly due to the release of pressure from the teeth. Furthermore, the teeth could also be sensitive because nothing is holding them together. If you are experiencing any discomfort after braces are removed, you can help manage it by using pain-relieving medication.

Therefore, it is advisable to visit our offices and have our professionals remove your braces. They are equipped with the necessary tools that can safely remove wires and brackets from your teeth. Trying to remove braces at home is highly discouraged because it poses great danger. Many of the pieces on your braces are quite sharp and could lead to cuts.

Furthermore, there are many cases of people accidentally ingesting pieces of braces while trying to remove them. The wires on these braces might break, making it possible for the brackets to slip off your teeth and risk ingestion. This can result in a serious medical emergency that can also be life-threatening. Therefore, it is important to have your braces removed at our offices. Our professionals will ensure the process is safe and doesn't pose any risk to your oral and overall health.
