Accept the braces. Teens often wear braces for one to three years, so they become a part of your everyday life. As such, the sooner a you can accept the braces, the more likely you are to cope successfully on a daily basis and integrate them into routines.

Accessorize with braces. One of the more pleasant ways to cope with wearing braces as a teen is the ability to wear colored rubber bands like you are doing with the Broncos colors. Most teens attend a monthly check-up and have the opportunity to change their band color regularly. Look at the changing of the bands as an opportunity to accessorize. Choose colors that reflect upcoming holidays, wear school colors or celebrate your favorite sports team's latest victory.

Minimize pain. Besides the everyday hassle of metal taking up space in a your mouth, braces can be quite painful. Braces are especially unpleasant immediately after an adjustment. Take necessary steps to minimize pain by carrying pain relievers to ease post check-up shifting or wax to protect gums from sharp wires and edges.

Focus on the end result. While braces can be an ongoing headache for a few years, try to focus on the result of all the work--a beautiful smile. By coping with the braces and taking good care of them, the benefits can outweigh the struggle.

Just remember, the earlier you get the braces, the better :-)

pain pain pain......YES TAKE PAIN MEDICATION RIGHT WHEN YOU GET THERE BEFORE THEY BEGIN...YOU WILL STILL BE IN PAIN LATER( GET ORAGEL TO AND BRING IT WITH YOU )

BEST THING TO DO IS TAKE TYLENOL AND ALTERNATE WITH MOTRIN...FOLOW DIRECTIONS ON THE BOTTLES DO NOT TAKE THESE MEDICATIONS AT THE SAME TIME !!!!!!
EXAMPLE TAKE TYLENOL 4 HRS THEN MOTRIN 6HRS THEN TYLENOL- ALTERNATING THE MEDICATION
READ LABEL ON PAIN MEDICATION AND WRITE DOWN WHAT YOU TOOK AND WHAT TIME IT WAS LIKE TYLENOL AT 4PM 2 PILLS THEN 1 MOTRIN AT 8 PM.....DO NOT DOUBLE DOSE MEDS
READ DIRECTIONS ON LABELS TWICE!!

ORANGE AND BLUE ARE COOL COLORS
YES IT HURTS WHEN YOU PUT THEM ON
ET BEFORE YOU GO

HAVE SOUPS AT HOME
ICE CREAM( COLD HELPS WITH PAIN)
JELLO
PUDDING
MASHED POTATOS
OATMEAL

LUNCHES WILL BE HARD AND HUT TO CHEW A SANDWICH
BRING YOGURTS/APPLESAUCE

Well I havent had them but I will and my friend has. PLEASE don't freak out. My friend said they werent too bad. They didnt hurt that much. They auctually give you a list of what not to eat- like candy, carmel, and other stuff you may love. REALLY don't listen that much about that stuff cause you can cheat if you brush you teeth at least twice a day. I love the colors too. MY friend said it only hurt when they give you shots to numb your mouth!! DON"T FREAK OUT!!!!

good luuuuuuuuuuuuuuck :)
try not to eat stiky stuff
i dont think he will put any colors yet not untill the bracket hold well to the teeth

no it wont hurt at all, the pain will be when the teeth are moving,
one again goood luck


vanimal00000
eat things that can be broken down by your tongue, jello, pudding bread, bananas, etc. Mine hurt for about 3 days, well they were sore. It's not bad.

Don't do colors. Just stick will silver. I'd take advil AFTER they get put on. It hurts after they put them on. about three or four hours. you're teeth feel like they are going to fall out and you can't really chew. But tons of mashed potatoes, soup, yougurt, etc. By the third day, you'll be begging for solid foods. By then, you should be able to rip up foods and chew the food with your back molars, and nothing else.


sincerelysarcastic
Ok i am going to tell you that it will hurt. When i got braces i couldnt eat hard food for like two days so buy something soft like soup. And yes i would take advil.

blue and green is a great color! sorry i cant help you with anything else (never had braces) but i probably will need them! :/

It will hurt pretty soon after you get them but the stop hurting in about a week. Don't take advil proactively. Wait until you get them on and if it hurts too much take it but it may not bother you. There's no way to know if you take it before. I like to color choice. I'm not a broncos fan but I like to colors. I suggest eating soft foods like pudding, soup, small pasta and other easy to chew stuff. Don't eat hard cereals, raw veggies, other hard things or taffy like things. Good Luck. And don't worry they'll be off soon enough.

I have braces too, I have had them for a year and a half. It may seem kind of scary at first, but it really is not that bad. For the first few days just eat soft food(pudding,ice cream,apple sauce). I am not going to say that your mouth does not hurt, but it is not extremely bad. It kind of depends on how crooked your teeth are. It also depends on your pain tolerance. No it does not hurt when they put them on. The only time I would say there is a little bit of discomfort is when they pop the wire in, but it isn't anything to worry about. Also, to be honest pain medicine does not really help because your teeth are moving. It may relieve some pain, but I would not take it until after. I would drink Slim Fast because it had calories and protein. When I first got braces I lost a few pounds because I couldn't eat much, but Slim Fast has nutrients and everything. I am going to the orthodontist next month to get my the gum tissue over my tooth taken off by a laser.....yikes! I had a tooth pulled in January and it hasn't come in yet. So now they will laser the gum tissue and put a bracket over the tooth so that it will come down. Oh, and yes Bronco colors are perfect! I am a Giants fan! Hope the appointment goes well!

just ask your dentist he willl tell you.

you should definately take a pain releiver before you get them on. it will help with the pain. i dont know if i would pick such bright colors. if you get clear or white, it might look better and the braces may be less noticeable. You should be prepared for a little bit of pain. You might wanna stay away from hard foods and eat soft things like mashed potatoes, soup, milkshakes, etc (nothing you have to bite into). It really does not hurt that bad... only when they tighten them and for like a day afterwards. good luck!

Firstly, don;t worry.
It'll be fine.
On the first day, they don't hurt almost at all. You will just feel, when you eat, the food getting stuck on them and you'll feel like it's really ugly. But don't worry it's not.
The second day is probably the worst. It hurts a lot. Most people take Advils, but I didn't. But then again, I didn't even take one when I broke my wrist. So get an Advil ready just in case.
By the third day, you will still be feeling pain, but it will have subsided from the second day. After that, the only way is up.
After about 5 days, you won't feel any pain anymore. It'll be as if you aren't wearing braces. The only other time that you will feel pain is for about 3 days after everytime you get them tightened.
WARNING: If you feel anything poking at your gums or anything else, tell your orthodontist because they can fix it in a few minutes.

For food, you can't have gum, chewy candy, chocolate with nuts or anything hard of crispy. If you have any apple, you have to cut it up into small bite sized pieces. It can get annoying sometimes, but you;ll get used to it. The rest of the foods your orthodontist will tell you about.

P.S. I think blue and orange are fine.

I hope I helped :D And good luck with your braces! ;)

i didn't think that braces hurt at all. it just felt a bit sore. i ate 1 hour after i got my braces.. even though you're not supposed to do it.its really no big deal


forgot the name
hey hey hun calm down! i promise you it doesn't hurt when they put them on. they make you bite down on this thing a couple times and it kinda hurts but hardly at all! take ibuprofin or advil about 30 mins before you go. you will be able to chew for about half a day after you get them on then they will start to hurt so just eat things like soup, mashed potatoes, yogurt, ice cream =). You'll be totally fine, it won't hurt much depending on how much they tighten them. If they tighten them alot you will be very sore but it's nothing you won't live through and just keep taking medicine you'll be fine in about a week

don't freak out u'll be fine but i would take maybe 1 advil b-4 u go and about 2 after and i would recommend eating applesauce, pudding, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, and any other soft foods for the next 3-4 days by then the pain will ease up (not that its severe in the first place) orange and blue are cool colors besides its what u want so go for it................and no it does not hurt they just put cement on them and stick them to ur teeth and then apply the wire then ur doughnut holes which are ur colored things and u may feel slight pressure but no pain i promise.........anywho good luck and remember relax ok u'll be fine!!

Its more uncomfort than pain. Girls with braces are cute.

HI i got braces about a year ago. They don't hurt to much but they do hurt a little. I ate macaroni for the first few weeks but after that they only hrt when they get tightend. I don't think you should get any colors coz they look awful. Just get silver. The Broncos? Do you come from australia?

i would take advil immediately after, im not sure that it helps with prevention of pain. secondly blue and orange are great, they are complementary colors so that will look good. three, i think i would try to eat a good bit before because your teeth might be really sore after. forth, you will be okay, its not like they are going to hurt you on purpose and the dental people will be able to help answer your questions. just RELAX : )


yo
hello!!
i had braces, and i just took them off this summer!
well let me tell you that you need to eat whatever you like before you put them on, trust me, it hurts like heck after!!! but you'll be alright they are worth it =]
and dont take any advil before just wait after and see if you're in real bad pain, then you will have to take advil!!
but dont worrie, it just hurts the first time then i'll all be like normal.
about the colors if you like them then go ahead and put them on!
well good luck!!!!!

aww dont be nervous! for some people they dont hurt at all but for other people the pain kills, it really depends

it was bearable for me, it just feels like your mouth is sore and it can feel liek you have a headache. to be safe take advil once you get home from the orthodontist. it wont start hurting until a few hours after

and get whatever colors you want :) have fun with it
good luck!

k. first off don't be freaked out. U should only eat soup or soft stuff that doesn't involve you chewing, cuz you wont be able to chew for a good week ( itll hurt when you bite). Dont take Advil before, take advil after. the colors are your choice, i had plain ones cuz i was too lazy to choose out a color. There might be discomfort when they're putting the braces on, and it will hurt whenever you bite, for the first say week, two max. it will feel weird at first, but you'll get used to it. and when you get it off itll feel even weirder. ( i just got mine off a week ago, and im still not used to my teeth, its weird.)

hope that helps.


peace + love = happiness
It does hurt, but only for about a day after they put them on and when you get them adjusted. You should eat before you go because your teeth will hurt after. Its not scary or that painful though so don't worry, and just think of how pretty your teeth will be when they come of in a couple of years.:D

Your teeth may not feel very good after, but it doesn't hurt that much. And when they put the braces on, it is practacally pain-free. It is a very long, but easy process. Nothing will go wrong and you will be fine after. Don't take advil before, take it after. The pain will start a few hours afterwards, but will go away within a few days. Orange and blue are very nice colors, but you should go red and green for the holidays. It's your choice.
Hope I helped!

calm down darlin dont freak yourself out, to me they sound like good colours and they would look great, but they dont really hurt they just ache all they do is glue them on its really simple and I was shocked when I came out and realised that they were there cos I didnt feel a thing. They do ache for about a week but then your mouth just gets used to them. Are you having fixed ones beacuse if you are you can pretty much eat anyway its only if you have the ones that you take out it gets difficult trust me. Just have some soup and things that are soft and b4 you no it you wont even realise that they are there
good luck

It hurts. It is painful. The pain lasts for a little bit.
After I got braces, I ate elbow noodles, cuz you can swallow that without chewing (and chewing hurts at first). And soup. But after a couple of days, I was able to convert to softer foods. But I had to cut it up.
it will be okay, though. don't worry too much :)

About the colors...
I think orange is always bad. Because my friend got orange and it looked like she ate too many Cheetos. I've had braces for years, and I think it looks best when you choose just one color for everything.


just... amazing
well it all depends on the person and how bad your teeth are. for me i was very nervous and when i got them it wasn't bad at all. It depends on how much pain you can take in. I got mine on at 11 and noe i am 13. in 2009 i will hit three year with my braces on. however my teeth were VERY, VERY bad. most people have theirs on for 1-2 years maybe even a few months. so don't sweat it. when all over you will be so happy you got them.

Don't be freaked out at all hun. The more you freak out the worst it will hurt. It will not hurt until after you've had them on for about an hour. Eat mashed potatoes.....and mushy stuff for about a week or two. If orange and blue float your boat then rock it. Remember gurlly PAIN IS BEAUTY!!!!!

But it doesn't hurt much at all when getting them on.....i promise..unless you have like a very sensitive mouth. Be calm cool and collected and things will go great. Best answer :-]
