What should I do after getting my braces off?

Smile! 

Sometimes your teeth feel a little strange as you have been so used to the braces. 

They might feel smooth and strange - but you will feel normal again very quickly. 

After a few days, we will take some 'after' photos of your fabulous result - these are great fun to prepare to the 'before' pics. We take close-up photos of your teeth and bite as well as full-face photos of you from different angles. We will also fit you with your new retainer, the purpose of which is to keep your new smile perfectly straight. 

It is usually advisable to seek a check up and clean appointment with your general dentist now that the braces are out of the way.
