Here is a small video that shows how easy, fast and painless braces can be removed. I use a special plier that squeezes the bracket at it’s base causing the bracket to shear off of the tooth. As you can see it takes a matter of seconds. After the braces are removed, an orthodontist needs to remove the adhesive. That can be done by another plier that shears the adhesive off or a high speed carbide finishing bur can be used.
