Initially, you will feel quite uncomfortable as they are being allocated but with time, you will get used to them. You should consider the doctors recommendations of taking care of them after they have been implemented.

Painful to get. Painful to tighten. Remember, braces are designed to force your teeth and bone structure into a certain shape. Slowly, and painfully. MUAHAHAHA! Just kidding, But seriously they do hurt but get them while you are young and still growing, not at a later age, or you will have loose teeth.

They're terrible at first. It's not too bad. But, I would look into Invisalign. It's cheaper, easier, and you have to wear them for less of a time. They only work for certain people, though. Seriously, though, you should check it out and see. But, whatever happens, it'll be fine. :)

Haha! It was fun. Oh, really? So, we can't talk about it now? I mean, it's up to you when we talk about it. But, I'm told I give good advice, and I definitely would like to listen to you. So, just let me know.

Nah I don't want to talk about it through here. It's nothing to do with me doubting, it's about others. Heavy subject we'll talk about it Monday cause unfortunately I'm really busy tomorrow.
Report as
Yeah, I thought you wouldn't want to talk about it here. Alright, well, I'll make sure and make myself available to talk on Monday. Well, I gotta get off now. Talk to you Monday!
