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 anda have to wear them. Some have to wear it for 1 yr atau even 3.
C. Do anda have to wear Brace's just for straightening teeth? NO. There are these plastic thingys. anda don't have to wear them at the day-only for katil time-braces are old inventions for that ( like why go through all that pain and suffering for straightening teeth?)
D. Will anda look ugly with them on? Only if anda don't choose a ridiculous colour. Try to use pale blue, merah jambu atau red atau another colour that doesn't attract to much attention, when choosing Model of braces. (DO NOT choose green, yellow, atau 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 atau 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 Coke (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 lalu ... 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 anda get them anda take care of'em for a while, and at some point they might give anda rubber bands to wear. Those will hurt for a while, but you'll get used to them too. If anda take care of your braces you'll have'em off quickly, probably under a tahun atau two.
I do, but mine are going be off on the twelfth. anda can eat chips and drink soda, but don't drink soda, tea, atau coffee constantly. anda will get cavities. Mine have been on for two and a half years. They hurt when anda first get them on, when anda get rubber bands/appliances, and when the change the wire. Pretty much eat anything that's not sticky atau extremely hard, i.e. caramel apples, gum, chewing ice, etc. anda CAN eat beef jerky-if anda are careful.
yes indeed i wear braces. and indeed they stink. people say anda cant eat thing like gum and popcorn and stuff like tht, but really it depends on your orthodontist. anda can eat sugarless gum, because otherwise it gets stuck in your braces, and popcorn is okay it just gets kinda uncomfortable after anda eat it since it's like under a wire atau something. and they do hurt after anda 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 atau a metal peg sticking out of it and it will poke the heck out of your gums, so anda will have to put some wax on it (the ortho should give it to anda along with a whole kit once anda get them on) anda do not want to get white atau 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 bahagian, atas 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 anda 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.
