Theoretically speaking, yes it is possible to remove the braces for one week or one month and then resume the treatment again after some time, but it is a procedure that you will always be advised against.... you might not have a problem with the additional cost of the treatment due to removal of the braces and then rebonding of the same, but you should also realise that this step gives a major setback to the flow of the treatment and can delay the treatment and at the same time can also reverse the changes that would have been achieved till that stage.... clear aligners would be a better option for you if you wish to go to family functions without showing off the braces..... regards.....

Should be possible at an additional charge.... quite often than not people do discontinue due to family functions.
