Hi, I'm Dr. Mike Glasmeier from the First Impressions Family Dentistry in Antioch, Tennessee, and today we're going to be discussing how braces are removed from teeth. For materials used, we will be using special dental tools to help remove the braces and the wires from the teeth. First, for step number one, well, what will have to happen is the wire will be detached from the brackets. It's not until the wire gets removed, the dental brackets will be removed. Using a special wire handler, the wire will be popped off from each bracket and the elastic bands will be removed. Once the wire has been removed, you can proceed on with removing the brackets. The brackets are held in by a special bonding cement, similar to a tooth-colored filling material. When each bracket will be grabbed by a special set of pliers, that will basically break the bond between the cement and the brackets, and each bracket will be slowly removed with these pliers. Once the bracket has been removed, the cement will be, have to be removed. So, the dentist will use a hand piece and a carbide burr to slowly polish off all the residual cement to make the teeth nice and smooth again. Once the cement has been removed, the dentist or orthodontist typically will take some new molds or impressions of the teeth so that retainers can be made after the braces has been removed. And these are the steps that an orthodontist or dentist will use to remove braces. It is advised, because dental tools are required to remove these that you, you consult a specialist for this to be done.
