    I got them in eight grade. this was in 1990. They where sore at first and it did hurt a small bit when they "tightened" them. Braces have advanced.I think they make "clear" ones now. I had them on for 2 1/2 years. Do not worry. you will be ok and will be happy with the results.

    i had braces. i got them took out 2 years ago.

    i had them in for 3-4 years. when they are in they hurt a little because you have to get used to them. After a week or two, u will be allright. u have to brush a certain way, eat certain things, and etc, until u get used to the braces. once u get used to the braces u still have to brush a certain way but u can eat anything u want. But things such as apples, hamburgers, etc, u have to eat small pieces of things.

    I have them. They don't hurt when you put them on at all. When they put the wire on it just feels a little tight. Your mouth is sore a couple days afterwards though but you can take Tylenol and after that, you don't even know that they are there. Don't worry, they're nothing.

    Yes, I did have them. They do hurt a little until you get used to them, but after that the only bad thing is getting food stuck in them. I had them for about a year.

    no.

    but my sister did.

    and they caused her a lot of pain.

    she had then for two, and got them off a year early so she didn't have them in her senior picture, and they started to go back to the way they were, but they aren't near as bad as what they were before she got them, but they're not perfectly straight anymore.

    yes but i didn't feel much when they were putting it on.but a while later when i was hungry-AUGH! it hurt so bad! >_<

    luckily i only had to wear it for less than 2 years

    now i have this crappy retainer that i have to wear...oh well...

    anyways remember to take care of your teeth =)
