what all do they do to your teeth when they take off your braces?
do they shave your teeth down to make them even or what?

Josh R
They scrape off the cement (ouch) and yeah, they pretty much shave your teeth down. Good luck. If you've got a list of things to do before you die, I suggest you start doing it.

yeah i think they do. ask them if they will when you get there

They just file ur teeth to make them all even at the bottom. Dont worry it doesnt hurt

Yea, they take a sander basically to get all the glue off and even out the bottoms of your teeth. Not gonna lie, if you have sensitive teeth (which I do), it's probably one of the worst experiences your mouth could ever have. It was really painful for me. Not to mention gross because you are tasting burnt sand from your teeth.

Rachel S
they take them off, & then they use all these tools to get the cement off, & then they razor your teeth down to be even. :)

Yes, they file the cement off the enamel and usually fit you for retainers.

they punch you in the mouth until ur teeth are straight

I 'm pretty sure they don't save your teeth down ,they braces should have even them out .

Kkcourva...(j's WifeY)
nada they just pull off the back brackets and use this defice to take off the pieces on your teeth that the rubberbands go on but after they take it all of your teeth will feel slimy idk i just know mine did and everyone else thats gotten them taken off. it doesn't hurt just kinda uncomfortable but real quick

Joel R
They don't shave your teeth, but they do get all the excess glue off. It's a very exciting day, and your teeth will feel slimy.

They give you retainers ,http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://klarschorthodontics.com/images/Clear%2520retainers.JPG&imgrefurl=http://klarschorthodontics.com/reta
here is a pic

They will take all the wires and glue off. It is a long process but time sure does fly by! Then yes, they do kind of shave your teeth to be all even and straight. They even kind of make your side teeth turn in, like corners. When you first get them taken off it will feel very slippery lol and weird! But they will also have to get a mold of your "new" teeth so they can make retainers.

Where Boys Fear To Tread
Yes they make them even and straight. Other than that they just shave off all the cement that attached the brackets. I think thats pretty much it.

..: smile if you mean it :..
They take the braces off, then do their best to clean the glue off of your teeth. If you want your teeth reshaped, you need to go to a dentist not an orthodontist.

Well, they gave me this two piece retainer thingy...

Just saying...But who is giving all of us these thumbs downs?

Depending on the shape of your teeth, yes. This usually only occurs on the front few teeth. I had my front four teeth on my top four shaved down slightly because the bottom of my teeth resembled ridges, and they wanted it straight. They won't shave down a lot and it doesn't hurt. You probably won't even feel it.

They also remove your braces, remove the glue, and give you your retainers.

They don't shave your teeth but they do have to drill the glue off your teeth. This can be a lil painful depending on how sensitive your teeth are but it usually only hurts the front teeth. I hope this helped.

They clean them and off you go, with the big fat bill !

They pull out the little wire part (it doesn't hurt). Then they pluck off each brace one by one (that doesn't hurt either, really easy). Then they scrape the glue off ur teeth (it kinda hurts). Then they like shine ur teeth with this really cold thing (i hated that part). Good Luck, and hope you love your new teeth!
