I have really sensitive teeth but I was fine getting my braces off. When they pulled off the brackets off it was uncomfortable but it did not hurt. Then they scrape the cement/glue off. That takes a long time and hurts a little but is so worth it.

I've had braces on my top teeth twice and once on my lower teeth. It wasn't that bad getting them off. It was worse when the first pair came off when I was nine because my teeth were still settling in. Last time I barely felt anything. There was blood though and cement flying around in my mouth though! Getting braces off isn't as bad as people say.

I just got my braces off this Tuesday! It really wasn't bad at all. I am so relieved and I can finally eat something as simple as an apple. I'm already used to my teeth and I feel so much more confident.

I got my braces off a bit ago, it was a bit uncomfortable and there probably will be bleeding in your mouth, but it's normal so don't be alarmed. They just kinda pulled the brackets right off with these orthodontic pliers, and it surprisingly didn't really hurt much at all. Just a lil discomfort but it was fine. And my teeth look awesome! You'll be fine, I'm sure.
