What should I expect when I get braces?
Please help.
I'm going to be getting braces and I need advice. . . what will it be like? Will it hurt?
What does it make you feel like mentally & physically


When you get them on, it doesn't hurt. But if you hadn't eaten before the appointment, EAT SOON, and VERY quickly because your teeth will HURT!

i got braces last in 2005, and I thought they would be awful. But actually, they're not that bad. They hurt when you get them on, but if you want pain meds, aleve seems the best, personally. Take one in the morning before school and another at dinner before you eat. That's what I do. And bring music when they're tightened (small headphones like iPod work best, don't get in the way) because it gets pretty boring. Also, brush good, and if you have pop, I tend to rinse my mouth with water afterwards. Good luck. But physically, nothing other than a sore mouth. Mentally, you feel a little different. But, everyone has braces these days, so no one looks twice at you, trust me. good luck! Oh, one more thing, I try to make them fun by getting bands in colors the go with the season (red and green now, summer is red, white, and blue, spring is blue, pink, and light yellow). Makes it a little more fun. Oh, and the little pointy brush (proxibrush) will very quickly become your best friend! Wishing you all the luck in the world! Bye! And be relaxed, get a before and after picture, make it a semi big deal! Again, good luck, and be cool! Bye!

when your waiting to get called on you will probably be nervous but you wont fell pain in the begining but then it hurts so bad you cant even eat bread

If you're at an age where most people are getting braces, it shouldn't affect you much mentally. It can hurt and make your mouth sore for a while, but the straight teeth at the end are worth it!

It depends on the person, really.

I didn't mind braces. I actually liked them. At my orthodontist we got cool colors for the bands, which was neat.

They hurt, I won't deny that. It's not terrible, but it is annoying. It can be hard to eat right after they get tightened, especially if your front teeth are being moved a lot.

Usually, I just fell asleep after each appointment, until they stopped hurting. (That's another thing: At first, they tighten the braces and maybe add springs or rubber bands. It depends on your teeth, of course. Later they don't because they're just there until your teeth are set enough so they won't move much when they get taken off).

Getting the 4 bands on your molars was the worst part. They're these metal things that go around your molars to anchor in the wire. They have to make sure they fit by trying on one or two per molar. Look at it this way: when our parents were kids, braces were ALL bands.

All in all, though, I liked having braces and I'm really, really happy with the results. I would have not wanted to go through life with my teeth the way they used to be!

I had braces and they hurt like hell, especially when I had to go in periodically and have them tightened.

I can only hope they've improved things in the last couple of decades.

Brushing your teeth is going to be a big pain in the butt.

But the straight teeth you'll have makes it all worth it, believe me.

I had braces for 6 years and hated every second of it. They hurt to get on, off and when they are tightened or the rubberbands are changed. Brushing your teeth will be a pain in the butt and all your dentists will constantly be telling you that you are not brushing good enough. But if you don't brush atleast 2 minutes every day you can get gingivitis and yout gums will get infected and swollen. That's what happened to me and 6 months after getting my braces off, my gums are still swollen from the stupid gum infections. I also hated the way I looked and felt really ugly but my teetth were really, really crooked. The only advice I have for you, is to not worry and for about a week after you get them on, and when rubberbands are changed, eat only really soft foods that don't have to be chewed much to swallow.

the only pain i had from it was when i had to sit there for so long with my mouth open...kinda makes the jaw sore. otherwise, depending on the tension they put on them, there may be a very small amount of soreness for a few days, but it's nothing extreme. just don't get hit in the mouth though...that can tear up your lip.

I have glow in the dark right now.

I just got braces last Wednesday. They cut the inside of your mouth, and it takes 4-5 days at least to get used to the new pressure. Mentally;; you have to get used to seeing yourself with braces
Physically;; you have to get used to pressure, a lil pain, and cuts on the inside of your mouth.

I had braces before. They hurt for the first couple of days that they were on and then they were fine. It tended to be sore for a couple hours after getting them tightened as well.

Don't be worried about it. So many people get braces and the end results are worth it!!

It will hurt first week, your mouth will feel very small, you might be embarassed to smile or show of your teeth, but after a couple weeks youll be fine and no one will even notice anymore and slowly your teeth will straighten you smile will improve and when you get your braces off your teeth will feel very slimy cause your used to rubbing your tongue against metal and your have a nice smile for the rest of your life as long as you wear rour retainer. Its not that bad good luck

You should expect to be made fun of at school, but atleast you will have straight teeth in acouple of years... Good luck brace face, just wanted to give you a little taste of what it's going to be like!

it doesn't hurt at all. you will get used to them but it will take you a few months.

Physically your lips puff out more for that Angelina effect.
Mentally....uh?!? you feel the pain of braces on ur teeth and are concious that they are NOTICABLE?!?

they really aren't as bad as them seem. they don't hurt at all to be put on, you can't even fell them. they only you might feel a little bit of pain is when they change your wires, but thats only for a day or too. you will be fine!

best of luck to you!

don't be nervous!

It's so easy you'll be surprised!! I see it everyday. Here's how it goes where I work and I'm sure it will be similar where you're going.

If you have separators that means they are going to fit bands on your teeth. Bands are like little silver rings that fit all the way around your molars. It doesn't hurt. It might feel weird because the assistant will have to shape it to the tooth. Then you'll probably get your teeth brushed and you'll end up with some little cheek spreaders on. Those are used to keep your lips and your cheeks away from your teeth. The assistant will be brushing (with little paint brush looking thingies) some stuff on your teeth and once that is on there, the goal is to keep saliva off of your teeth. They'll brush 2 or 3 different things on your teeth to get the surface ready for your brackets and then the Dr. will come over and simply place the brackets on your teeth. Then he'll use a little blue light to harden the glue that will hold the brackets on. Once your brackets are on they'll place a wire in and then you'll either get to pick colors to go around the brackets or these days some brackets have gates that close to hold the wire in. The wire is going to start moving your teeth and this movement is what makes you sore. Just take some Tylenol or whatever you take for headaches and that should help. You'll do great. Don't be scared it's soooo easy!
