Getting your braces off! What you should expect

Getting your braces off! What you should expect

Fortunately, getting braces taken off is easier and faster than getting them put on; the whole process often takes about an hour. Your orthodontist will first remove your braces from your teeth all at once, often leaving the archwires in place.

How Often Do You Go to an Orthodontist After Braces?

Do not miss any of the recommended visits by your orthodontist; they are just as crucial as they would be with conventional braces. They want to make sure they are functioning properly and that you are wearing them often enough.

What Happens at Your First Orthodontic Visit?

The orthodontist will examine your teeth, mouth, and jaws. They may ask you to open wide or bite your teeth together and might ask about whether you have problems chewing or swallowing or whether your jaws ever click or pop when you open your mouth.

How Can Orthodontics Save You Money?

Any little dental problem has the potential to develop into a bigger one in the future, which might lead to increased expenditures. You may reduce your healthcare expenditures by having orthodontic treatment to address such difficulties.
