What would happen to someone's orthodontic braces If they were to die with them on?
docgobbler, you don't have to be such a jerk. i thought this question was kind of interesting. it's nice to read how other's think no matter how odd their question is.
It would probably eventually rust or something and decompose...
They would be buried with them? Why?
Yeah. They'd probably leave them on.
You have too much time on your hands to be thinking thoughts like this. In any case, the braces would be left on and the dentist would pro rate for the time that had been expended on the case. Geesh, go find something better to do!
it depends on the wishes of the person and of the family - if the family or the person really wanted them to be off then they would have them taken off. It's between the family and the funeral home at that point. So if you have them on, and you don't want to be buried in them and have in your will you want them off, then they'll take them off a dead person, and of course they would charge you for that. If it matters to you. Honestly when you are in that situation, you are in so much shock that it isn't going to matter that much to most people. I don't know why you would ask such a question. At that point it isn't going to matter.
