Finally after 2yrs, the time has come when I can just get rid of my braces. My dentist has scheduled an appointment on Friday 4braces removal. I’m really excited about that. Do I need to take any kind of precautions after the braces removal? It has been years that I had candies and chocolates. Can I eat them now? My dentist in the last visit told me that I have to wear a plate after braces removal. What is the role of that plate?
