I have 6 cavities on my upper teeth. My orthodontist wants to remove all of my braces and end treatment to fill the cavities

Is there any other way to keep them from removing my braces, i have spent so much money and time i cant stand to throw it all away like this. What should i do? Please help me.

Your orthodontist does want your teeth to rot away.

A frequent problem with orthodontics is poor oral hygiene that when combined with braces can leed to massive decay.  Not much good in straight teeth if you end up losing them.
