    Some time after the procedure there may be some discomfort. The actual procedure is really not a big deal at all. The only time there is some pain is after they replace the metal band that realigns your teeth. That's the worst part of it and it's really not all that horrible. I've experienced worse pain than this. Aspirin or other mild pain reliever usually takes care of it.

    Wait wait wait... a few days ago weren't you the one who was like "I REALLY REALLY want braces but could i get braces even though i dont need them?"

    I'm confused?

    Why all the sudden are you scared to get them?? And it doesnt hurt to get them on, just like 3-5 hours later and for like a week....

    Dont be :)

    People may tell you all these horror stories about how painful it is, but it really doesn't hurt at all.

    You're teeth are a little sore for a week afterwards and that's it :))

    Source(s): I have braces

    Don't be, they'll feel fine after a few days.

    nothing to worry about.

    just relax & later you will be very happy that you had braces treatment.
