The day my best friend got hers, she said she felt like running around screaming.
I guess they hurt the 1st days. After you get used it, (like when they tighten and stuff)

Hello, I have had braces for three years now, they dont get hurt putting on, but they get sore for two days or so. So eat stuff like pasta, pudding, and soft foods. Other than that, nope! Perfectly fine, no worries.

The first week or so you want to eat soft foods, cause it's kinda hard to bite into foods. It really doesn't hurt much when you get them on, it just feels weird in your mouth. You'll get used to it though. The first few days it will be a bit sore. Overall it really doesn't hurt much, and it's nothing really to get worried about.

They don't hurt that bad.

The first week or so, you might find it hard to chew. Not cause they hurt so much, but because you won't be used to the braces being there. Eat healthy food but soft foods, such as soup.

When you get them tightened, they will hurt for a couple of days. Take an Advil to ease the pain.

Also, be careful of what you eat. Stay away from super hard foods, and don't eat anything super soft. Gum is okay, as long as it's sugar free.

Remember: Your teeth are your responsibility. Brush every day and floss. If you don't, there will be an ugly line of plaque where the braces used to be. It's disgusting. Be sure to tell your parents if a wire pops.

- If a wire is poking you in the mouth, place wax on it. It should help.
- If you end up getting rubber bands, don't worry if they pop. It's actually pretty funny when they pop in your mouth while you're talking and fly across the classroom.(x
- No matter what people tell you about braces, (ie, "They're torture!", "Painful. Very, very painful."), don't stress. They're not bad.(:

They don't hurt super bad. Just take some medicine right after you get them on. I have some friends who didn't take any medicine afterwords and their mouths were hurting for about 2-3 days. It all I had a jet bite which isn't that serious. I have had them for a little more than a year and I have had no problems. I'm so happy 'cuz I'm getting them of this summer! You really don't need to stess about them! Just remember it will feel really weird at first but thats o.k.

toodles, chicbling11
