Your general dentist is a licensed professional and they can under the law removebraces. However, what you should look out for is to see aprofessional orthodontic specialistwho can place and also remove your braces when your treatment is over. But if for some reason you’re in a bind then your general dentist is capable of removing the brackets and the glue from your teeth. All they need is a special set of tools and know how to follow the directions. Thanks nad have a great day.
