    1. Your orthodontist will tell you all that you need to know. Stuff like: toffee, curry, lemon bonbons ( made that mistake and it turned my braces yellowy-green), basically, anything sticky you can't eat. Also, no hard foods. Have fruit cut up (esp. apples).

    2. First time you get it on, it hurts for about a week (it depends on the person, really). Every other time, you get used to it and it doesn't hurt as much. You will probably be able to start eating normally in about 4 days.
