It's been a while since I had mine removed but from what I remember: The orthodontist will remove the rubber bands, then the main wire. Next he uses pliers to remove the metal brackets that are stuck to your teeth with the dental adhesive. Then they have to use some type of solvent to remove the adhesive. It's not bad at all, just a little weird when they're prying the brackets off. They will probably make another mold of your teeth for your retainer.

They remove your bands and wire and then rip off your brackets with pliers. Then they will probably fit you up with a retianer.

They remove the wire. Remove rubber bands. Pull brackets off. Clean any leftover glue off.

It doesn't hurt at all!:)
