What To Expect During Deband


The moment you have been anticipating for months has finally come. Your braces are ready to come off and reveal your perfectly straight teeth! This appointment will take approximately one hour and you will leave our office locations in either NorfolkChesapeake or Virginia Beach ready to show off your beautifully crafted smile from our expert team of doctors. Here’s what you can expect at your debanding appointment. 


The Exciting Orthodontic Appointment When The Braces Come Off!


At Eastern Virginia Orthodontics, our expert orthodontists Dr. Holly Andersen, Dr. Anthony Peluso or Dr. Walker Shivar will let you know when your teeth are ready for your braces to come off. We will then schedule a debanding appointment, where our doctors will remove your braces. During this appointment, we utilize orthodontic instruments to remove all the brackets and bands. Then we will remove any residual glue leftover on your teeth. Don’t worry though, this process is easy. You may feel some pressure when the braces are being removed.

We will also take pictures of your teeth to see how beautiful your smile looks and place in your final records. 


Fitting Your Retainer After Braces


Whether you have traditional braces removed, or you are finished with your clear braces treatment, you will be fitted for a retainer that will be the final step of your orthodontic treatment. Even though your braces are now removed and your smile is what you have always dreamed of having, you still need to wear your custom-made retainer to ensure your teeth keep straight. Your teeth have the tendency to move back into the positions they were in before braces, so it is crucial to wear your retainer to keep that beautiful smile you have worked so hard towards. Your orthodontist will give you specific care instructions as to when you should your retainer so make sure you listen and follow their expert advice. 


Caring For Your Teeth After Braces


After getting your braces removed, you may feel some discomfort and tooth sensitivity. You will have to get used to the feel of your teeth again without braces. Your teeth will be more exposed after being half covered by a bracket for months so be sure to brush and floss teeth your teeth often; now you won’t have bands and brackets to brush around making this task a breeze for you!
