Taking them off was actually the least painful part of the process for me – and that’s saying something, cause I was in essential agony for four years ๐Ÿ™‚

They just pop the little pieces off, using some kind of little ultraviolet gun thing, and then scrub the paste off of your teeth. Over before you know it. Your teeth feel slick and clean afterwards – it is so nice!

If I remember correctly, it didn’t hurt. They use wire cutters or something, and I don’t remember how they get the brackets off, but once they were off, it felt amazing. No weirdness, it was awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚ They might leave a little of the glue on by accident. I’ve still got some on there, but it’s only a grain or so on one tooth.

Doesn’t hurt one bit! They just snap them off. It’s really quick.

It will take a couple weeks to get used to the feeling of not having them though. It’s so weird.

@misskarianne:  please wear your retainer. I know its a pain in the ass, but I didnt and wish I did!     <—- Yes yes yes.   I accidentally lost my retainer but I wear a nightguard for TMJ on my top row of teeth.  So the top row are still perfectly straight but my bottom row shifted when I had my single wisdom tooth removed.  Such a bummer.  Luckily you don’t see the bottom row too often when I talk or smile, but it still bothers me.

P.S. *happy dance for couawilou*

They have a little tool to pop the brackets off with and then they scrap all of the glue off of your teeth.  Doesn’t hurt a bit.

Your teeth do feel a little odd afterwards because your mouth has gotten so used to feeling the braces and now they aren’t there.  But that sensation doesn’t last too long.

I remember my teeth had little white-ish blotches on them from where the braces had been (but this was a long time ago, the glue they use may be different now) I had thought it was permanent discoloration but it went away after a while. So if your teeth look weird at first I wouldn’t worry, plus it’s so subtle only you would notice it anyway.
