I had braces for almost 3 years. For the first year or so, they hurt for days every time I had them tightened. It wasn't as bad after my teeth were straight and the "adjustments" were less drastic. I have a few tips about braces:

1. Don't eat popcorn...or caramels, or chewing gum, or whole fruits. Or nuts, seeds or hard candies. In other words, don't eat anything that could damage the brackets and/or get stuck in your teeth.
2. Don't have your mouth open while you rub your face on a piece of fabric (drying yourself off with a towel, etc.). Trust me on this one.
3. Don't set your appointments to have your braces tightened to be right before an important event or holiday.
4. Be very careful brushing your teeth.
5. Once you get your retainer, wear it!

Good luck!

I had them. Your teeth are sore for the first few days. And after every tightening they get a little sore again. I'd just have some tylenol/ibuprofen on hand to take the edge off the soreness. It really depends on your pain tolerance and how snaggly your teeth are. My teeth were growing into THREE rows, so you can only imagine how sore I was.

ive had braces on the back of my teeth for some and it was very annoying once the wire came loose to stick out after eating some corn. the wire was poking into my tongue (bottom) enough to annoy the heck out of me. I did manage to remove the whole wire as it been a long time since ive had them installed.
