Here’s what you need to know about getting your braces removed:


1 Schedule your appointment

The first step in getting your braces off is to schedule an appointment with your orthodontist at Signature Orthodontics. Your orthodontist will perform a final check of your teeth to ensure that they have properly aligned, and that your bite is correct. They will then remove your braces and discuss what comes next.


2 Prepare for your appointment

Before your appointment, it’s important to follow your orthodontist’s instructions for preparing for the removal of your braces. This may include avoiding hard or sticky foods in the days leading up to your appointment and brushing and flossing thoroughly.


3 The removal process

The actual process of removing braces is quick and straightforward. Your orthodontist will use special tools to remove the brackets and wires from your teeth, and then clean your teeth thoroughly.


4 Post-removal care

Once your braces are removed, it’s important to follow your orthodontist’s instructions for post-removal care. This may include wearing a retainer, using a special mouthwash, and avoiding certain foods that could damage your teeth or affect their alignment.


5 Enjoy your new smile!
