I got my braces off last year in January. It didn't hurt, but they pressure and stuff does make it a little uncomfortable, but don't worry Yeah, your teeth do feel slimy after getting them off for a little while, but it doesn't last long. Now I wear a retainer, and I shouldn't have to wear one now since I lost all my baby teeth By the way, congrats!!

I just got mine removed a week ago and it only hurt a little when they were taking it off, but when they chipped off the glue that didn't hurt at all. It was really fast and your teeth feel slimy afterwards. congrats though!

I got my braces off 2 years ago and it didn't hurt at all. To be honest, I didn't even feel anything! It also was really fast, I had no idea they were done until they told me. You have nothing to worry about, the hard part of having braces is already over! Congratulations by the way!

I had only top braces, and it took only like 30 secs for the braces to come off, and it didnt hurt!!! and then you rinse your mouth out and then she scrapes your teeth to get the glue off then you rise your mouth again then you're done!!! but your teeth feel slimy for awhile after

It hurt when I got my braces off! And my teeth felt really slimy! The first thing I did was chew gum, but I guess I wasn't used to chewing without my braces, because I bit my lip 13 times! But now everything is chill and I'm glad I don't have my braces. Plus, I have really straight teeth!

I don"t remember it hurting for me, but I do remember my teeth feeling really slimy, lol

It doesnt hurt, except maybe your jaw from holding your mouth open. And hope the orthodontist doesnt scrape out any of your fillings (she scarped out 2 of mine and now i have to get them filled again )
