If a person who has braces dies, do they take them off before the wake? i know when someone dies they sew the eyes and mouth shut but wouldnt that make a bulge in the mouth? broaden my knowledge here. THANKS

I think that it wouldn't really matter, they usually close the mouth anyways at an open casket funneral.I think they would leave them on though for personal sake.
