Dental Braces

Can your adult teeth fall out if the orthodontist tightens your braces too tight or even just a bit?

No. The dentist would always be sure your teeth were healthy before putting the braces on. If you had over-lapping teeth (your teeth are too large to let others come in aligned your dentist may pull the odd one) before the braces are applied.
