It hurts. I had the metal damons with 6 clear on the top. The molars were fine but the incisors hurt a bit. Lots of pressure. The clear brackets were bad getting off. They broke up when my ortho tried to break them off and he was working on those teeth most of the time.

I wasn't nervous until they actually got started doing it. I don't remember it hurting the first time I got debanded, but this time sure did! My teeth are sensitive to cold, so the polish and the vibration from the tools to get the glue off was extremely uncomfortable for me. Removing the brackets wasn't bad at all, neither were the impressions.

Not Nervous..

That being said, that tool they used to get the glue off.. OMG, I didn't know I had sensitive teeth until that moment. at least 8 of my teeth are sensitive to those vibrations and I felt more pain in those few minutes than my entire treatment combined...
