I had them from 5th grade to the beginning of my freshman año in high school. I was supposed to have them only for 2 years but we were moving they kept saying I needed them longer :/ & of course theyll hurt @ first! lol I dont mean to scare you, I couldnt even eat a maní, cacahuete mantequilla & gelatina, jalea emparedado, sándwich de they hurt so bad :[ it really sucked But that only lasted a few days after I got them, then I got used to it & the pain went away. I remember my teeth always hurting after an appointment when I got the color rubber bands changed. Just make sure tu take care of ur teeth & do what ur supposed to so tu dont need them longer than tu should! youll be so happy when tu get them off cuz youll have nice teeth & no más braces :D <3
braces only hurt for like the first few days. and then when ever tu get them tightened they hurt for a couple days. eat soup. and definately tell them if anything is poking tu because if tu don't say anything they dont know. the average time tu have braces is probably 2-3 years. i had mine for 3 but my brother had them for 6. ask your ortho how long you'll need them. make sure tu floss!
ok first, calm down. they might feel a little uncomfortable at first but they wont stay that way forever. over time they will feel less and less bad. the time u have 2 wear them changes, but ur orthodontist will tell u. if he doesnt, then ask. take a deep breath... these arent going to be the worst things ever.
They don't hurt when they first put them on, but later when you're at home, trying to eat your pizza o something, they hurt like CRAP! (I'm not going to sugarcoat this) tu get used to them after a while, they stop hurting after a few days. The time tu have them on always depends on how messed up your teeth are. Braces aren't that bad, and tu will get used to them. It's just something you'll have to experience yourself.
Omg. so many people get braces so it's now like your going to be the only one. And they do hurt when tu first get them. I had them for 3 years. It's not fun, but tu get through it because when tu get it off tu have nice straight teeth in the end =D
No, the braces dont hurt that much cuz i used 2 hav them last year. u just gotta get used 2 them. they usually hav 2 stay on 4 a couple yrs, but it depends how bad ur teeth r. Be aware, it kinda hurts when u get them tightened. :( Good luck!
