8. Can a removable brace be taken out?
A removable brace should only be taken out:
- For swimming and kept in a brace box which is available at reception.
- After every meal for cleaning with toothbrush and toothpaste and then put back in immediately.
Otherwise the brace should be worn full-time so that constant pressure is maintained on the teeth ensuring that they move quickly in the right direction.
Remember, if you cheat, your treatment will take very much longer and your teeth will not look as good as we would hope.
