Dentistry - Orthodontics

In brief: Minutes

It takes just a few minutes to disconnect the braces from the teeth.
It takes longer to remove the residual bonding material from the teeth and then polish the teeth. Additional time required to take impressions for retainers and to go over post-braces oral hygiene instructions. Ask your Treating Dentist or Orthodontic Specialist how much time you should set aside.
