When you get them, you can just feel annoyed because they put this thing where it makes your mouth bigger. Besides that, nothing hurts about getting them. And bring lip balm! Your lips gets super dry. After you get your braces, it can hurt for 2 to 14 days. It hurt for about 2 weeks for me :/ You can't eat sticky stuff like gum, caramel and hard stuff and artificial stuff for the first week. I had to have sou for the first and second week because i hurts like crazy when I bite down. And ask for wax! When a bracket is pocking your gum, you can put wax on it to protect your gum. IDK what kind of braces you're getting but I got daemon braces (plain silver metal braces without colors) so IDK what kind of braces you will get but ya that's how I felt when I got them. One of my tooth was underneath my gum so I had t get surgery to get that tooth out but it's most likely that you won't do that surgery :P Good luck!
well it wont hurt at first but after 15 minutes or so then you'll feel it. For about 72 hours you wont be able to chew anything without pain in your teeth. Then nothing. This happens every time you get them tightened. They don't take that that long to put on maybe half a hour even less
What sannic said. I suggest taking some Advil or Aleve or aspirin or something about an hour before each scheduled appointment, and then getting ice cream after, as the cold helps numb your face for a little bit. Also, it's a great excuse for getting ice cream:) Pick good colors!
