A. Yes-THEY HURT, for a few weeks it will hurt to chew and stuff (As they are already put on) But the pain won't last that long.
B. It depends how long wewe have to wear them. Some have to wear it for 1 yr au even 3.
C. Do wewe have to wear Brace's just for straightening teeth? NO. There are these plastic thingys. wewe don't have to wear them at the day-only for kitanda time-braces are old inventions for that ( like why go through all that pain and suffering for straightening teeth?)
D. Will wewe look ugly with them on? Only if wewe don't choose a ridiculous colour. Try to use pale blue, pink au red au another colour that doesn't attract to much attention, when choosing models of braces. (DO NOT choose green, yellow, au black-you will be the laughing stock, I warn you)
E. Should I get them now-That I'm young? YES. now is a good time, trust me. Don't wait till 17 au something,its best to get them done and over it when younger. Kids look cute with braces-Older? Its tacky.
I havent got them, but im getting them soon. I think they do hurt a bit. My friend has braces and when she drank koki (or any other fizzy drink) one of the front ones fell off, so I would advise not to drink fizzy!
I had braces a couple of years zamani ... I remember it just hurting in the beginning but after a while I didn't even notice them anymore ... and when I got them out again it felt like something is missing ^^
For the first few days they should hurt, but after a while you'll get used to'em. Usuallhy after wewe get them wewe take care of'em for a while, and at some point they might give wewe rubber bands to wear. Those will hurt for a while, but you'll get used to them too. If wewe take care of your braces you'll have'em off quickly, probably under a mwaka au two.
I do, but mine are going be off on the twelfth. wewe can eat chips and drink soda, but don't drink soda, tea, au coffee constantly. wewe will get cavities. Mine have been on for two and a half years. They hurt when wewe first get them on, when wewe get rubber bands/appliances, and when the change the wire. Pretty much eat anything that's not sticky au extremely hard, i.e. caramel, karmeli apples, gum, chewing ice, etc. wewe CAN eat beef jerky-if wewe are careful.
yes indeed i wear braces. and indeed they stink. people say wewe cant eat thing like gum and popcorn and stuff like tht, but really it depends on your orthodontist. wewe can eat sugarless gum, because otherwise it gets stuck in your braces, and popcorn is okay it just gets kinda uncomfortable after wewe eat it since it's like under a wire au something. and they do hurt after wewe get them tightend SOMETIMES. they dont always hurt. they just feel really sore sometimes, and it will last at most 4-5 days. but other times they will have a sharp spot on the wire au a metal peg sticking out of it and it will poke the heck out of your gums, so wewe will have to put some wax on it (the ortho should give it to wewe along with a whole kit once wewe get them on) wewe do not want to get white au yellow, because it will make your teeth look yellow and gross. trust me. i dont think black makes them look ugly though. i got mine on a little over 1 and 1/2 years ago, and i SHOULD get them off in august *squeals* unfortunately though, i have to get some "mouth surgery". and i have one tooth that hasnt come in yet, so they took an xray, blah de blah, its doing the wrong way, blah de blah. and apparently its not in the gums above all of my teeth, its like in the roof of my mouth! FUN!!! so they are going to have to cute a square out of my gums, attach a bracket (glued piece of metal) to my tooth with a chain, and some how pull it back to where its supposed to be. not trying to scare you, BUT ITS EXTREMELY UNLIKELY THAT THIS WOULD HAPPEN TO YOU!!!
Well I used to have them, I got them off last year. And yes, for the first couple days they hurt. But maybe that's because I got both the juu and bottom ones at the same time. They say to rinse with salt water and mouthwash (mouthwash for flavor) and it should reduce swelling and pain. Good luck.
Hello. Yes I have braces, but it's not really anything to worry about. I had to have 4teeth pulled out also which wasn't very nice:/ for the first few days there will be an uncomfortable sort of tension in your mouth, and when wewe try and bite it will hurt. The best thing to do is have some painkillers and have soft foods like sandwhiches and soup. It's not that bad though. It hurts abit, but it's not unbearable. Good luck ! Hope it all goes ok :)
In fact i just got braces yesturday. As of right now my mouth is in alot of pain but i was told that are gonna hurt for a couple of weeks and it also hurts when u eat food. I dunno much about braces i just got them.
