xo_dream answered Tuesday September 21 2004, 9:27 pm: They're not half as bad as people make them out to be. If they hurt, just stick to pudding, ice cream, milkshakes, smoothies, etc for a day or two + take some ibuprofen + it'll be fine. Good luck! =) [ xo_dream's advice column | Ask xo_dream A Question ]
tingrin22192 answered Sunday September 19 2004, 8:29 pm: It's a great feeling. They'll be sore (you can't chew anything) for a few days your first time, but after that, it's totally great. The only downside is that they're sore once in a while, but people don't think you're ugly, or stupid if you have braces.

xxxxxx answered Thursday September 16 2004, 6:02 pm: make sure you have a bottle of ibruprofin. and soft foods handy. i think the level of pain depends on the person, but on a scale of 1-10 for ME it was a ten. [ xxxxxx's advice column | Ask xxxxxx A Question ]
Mercy_x_Me answered Thursday September 16 2004, 5:53 pm: brush your teeth well every day, use white strips before you get braces, floss your teeth always, and most of all jam in all that gum and gummy foods before you are not allowed to . . . lol...gl [ Mercy_x_Me's advice column | Ask Mercy_x_Me A Question ]
XxAxFxIxX answered Thursday September 16 2004, 5:46 pm: Well, honestly there isnt really anything you could do , but make sure that when you get home you imediatly take some advil or tylonol, anything you would take for a headache. And be ready for pain! Braces hurt a lot, the first day you get them on it wont hurt that bad, but the following week is hell. You wont like to chew or tlak a lot, so dont plan so many social events.
Hope i helped!

Laura answered Thursday September 16 2004, 5:23 pm: They hurt a bit, not much. Take Tylenol or Ibuprofen before you get there, and keep on them as much as it's allowed, I think it's every four hours. Be SURE to get some wax, if there's a wire that is poking you and you cover it with the wax it makes it much better. I chewed all kinds of gum, never cared if it was sugarless or not and I never had a bracket fall off.
xXxpinky615xXx answered Thursday September 16 2004, 5:07 pm: take advil before you get them on and take it after. you can chew gum even though they say not to but make sure it is sugarless!!! if it has sugar in it, it will get stuck and mess up your teeth. go easy on the chewy candy and don't chew on pen caps. the process is painful but the results are beatiful. good luck!

XxRockon answered Thursday September 16 2004, 5:06 pm: well when you get them , your mouth will be sore, so have a lot of tylenol and advil around..also it will prolly be uncomfortable to eat crunchy foods so have some soup and pudding around and the hurtin will go away in a few days..good luck wit them! :) [ XxRockon's advice column | Ask XxRockon A Question ]
