    It is possible to put the original braces back on, but it may not be as effective especially if it's been a long time since the last treatment and teeth have moved significantly, also the brackets (attachments to the tooth) doesn't stick on as well and more likely to pop off frequently.

    Best to discuss this with your orthodontist or dentist who carried out your treatment as to what is the best option available.
