Be prepared for a lot of discomfort :P Also BRUSH YOUR TEETH EVERY-TIME u EAT ! ! That is VERY IMPORTANT ! Food can get caught in places, even just a snack. And keep your mind on the positive, u will look GREAT once their off :) Good luck and take care :)
A picture from the future: "I see your braces are off...you look GREAT ! MEEEOOOWWW =^.^=
they hurt really bad for like a few days when u first get them on then it's fine from there. but always always always brush your teeth really really really good. one time when i had braces i ate cacao puffs and one of my brackets came off so watch what u eat. and be careful chewing gum. they say u can't but i did just be careful. and there is always alot of saliva in your mouth. but when u finally get them off, you'll be sooooo happy.
I literally only had my braces for two weeks...well the bottom part anyways...they lost the top, boven part in the mail -_- it wasn't as bad as I thought. A little discomfort eating and chewing...I have to wear the top, boven spacer/retainer for three months and that itself is hellish! BRUSH AFTER EVERYTHING u EAT!!!!!!
Well, make sure u floss alot, cuz if u dont, getting the braces re-adjusted is gonna kill like a bitch! And the worst part is hat ur face is gonna hurt for like 5 days, make sure that u r stocked up on advil and pain killers...
