No needle but dang it hurts like crazy. It's all worth it in the end. You might just grow into it too.

No needles are used but make sure to take an asprin before you go because your mouth may be a little sore.

No needles needed. It does not hurt to put them on. It will cause some tension for a couple of days. Eat soup and mashed potatoes for those days.

Orthodontists put on braces by glueing a bracket to your teeth. After that, they put a wire through a small hole in the center of the bracket. sometimes in the very back, the wire could stick out and poke you, but is no where near as sharp as a needle

It doesn't hurt at all at first. You will be a little sore after a few hours but it's very manageable
