I'm getting braces, people say it hurts a lot and my teeth are really bad!! Should I be scared? Or are they just exaggerating?

They are good people who don't have a reason to mess with me so I'm scared and worried.

I just got my braces off in the summer, and to tell u the truth, I LOVED THEM! I didn't have to have an expander, and it didn't hurt. It just felt weird for a couple of days. Make sure u get wax and a flosser (your orthodontic should supply those to you already,) and u should be good. Make sure to ask questions to your doctor, and check if your wire that goes to the back of your mouth isn't too long, or you will have to go back and get it clipped like I had to do. I am getting my braces on again this year. Have fun!

It's not that they hurt a lot, but they do make your mouth sore. It's nothing like cutting your arm or anything like that.

yes it hurts and it is okay to be a little anxious but just think how bad it will be without them. if someone has something, like their teeth, that they don't like about themselves, it can effect thuings like their self esteem and therefore they wont be as confident and out going. get the braces and ask for some pain killers.

At first they hurt but when you have them for a while you will get used to them

My teeth were really bad too and I'm not exaggerating it KILLED for the first week or two.. But my friends had them and some said it didn't even hurt so it depends. Here's a tip though, soft foods and don't use metal cutlery, it hurts so much if you bump them!! Just remember its worth it in the end, mine are off and I love my teeth now :)
