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 one of our offices in Norfolk, Chesapeake 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 with Eastern Virginia Orthodontics.

The Braces Come Off!

At your local Virginia Beach orthodontist, our experts, Dr. Anthony Peluso and Dr. Walker Shivar will let you know when your braces are ready to come off. We will then schedule a debanding appointment, where our orthodontists 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, this process is easy. You may feel some slight pressure when the braces are being removed. Our orthodontists will also take pictures of your teeth to see how beautiful your smile looks and place them 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, the final step of your orthodontic treatment. Even though your braces are now removed, you still need to wear your custom-made retainer to ensure your teeth stay straight. Your teeth have a 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’ve worked so hard for. Your Virginia Beach orthodontist will give you specific care instructions as to when you should wear your retainer and you should follow these instructions closely.

Caring For Your Teeth After Braces

After getting your braces debanded, you may feel some discomfort and tooth sensitivity. You will have to get used to the feeling of your teeth again without braces. Your teeth will be more exposed after being half covered by a bracket for months, so please be sure to brush and floss your teeth often. This task will be even easier without your braces and brackets, enjoy!
