    Exactly! I was expecting to be in like a world of hurt. hahah but they didn't really cut my cheeks or anything! I wore wax for like three nights, I think, but mostly for precaution in case they did cut my cheeks while I was sleeping. But it's been okay! Some of my teeth are extra sensitive some days, but I guess that's just part of it. haha

    1. It will be painful when you first get them on and whenever you have to get them tightened. But the pain doesn't last forever - the worst will be when you first get them on. Once you get used to how they feel after you get them tightened, it won't be so bad.

    2. I had light blue! They actually looked really cool. I tried darker blue as well, but it didn't look as nice. But you have the option to change the colour each time you get them tightened, so you have room to experiment!

    3. Brushing, brushing and mouthwash. And avoid eating too much sugar. My ortho gave me this fancy little brush that fits between the gaps in the wires.

    4. Gum is the biggest one, but also things like gummy candies will wreak havoc on your braces. Hard food - like mints, hard candy and popcorn - can break the brackets off if you chew on them. It's best to stick to soft stuff when you first get them on until you get used to how they feel. But your orthodontist will be able to fill you in on what you can and can't eat.

    5. Plan to go out and buy five packs of gum the day you get your braces off to celebrate!


    Aw Bex that stinks! D: Ugh I'm so scared for the pain though. I hope it'll get less worse after each time I tighten them. I'm thinking light blue, purple, and black right now so I'll probably give those a try (at different times ofc because I am NOT doing alternating colors haha). And yes, ugh gum. I love gum like once in a while but tbh I'm not a huge gum-chewer. I am also taking this as an opportunity to cut sweets in general haha. Thanks for all the tips! <333

    Thanks for the advice! I feel like it's going to be a bit gross having to pick out food from my braces.

    4- apples, steak, chewy sweets, gum, fizzy drinks, coffee, smoking ect. I ate all these things and my braces were fine haha.

    5- retainers are the worst things ever. I had braces for three years and I felt so trapped but getting them off is the most incredible feeling!

    good luck
    omg that sounds terrible, but thanks for the honesty! haha did you take any pain medication or anything? I'm definitely thinking baby blue and purple as of right now! But orange seems like a good one too! And I did hear that white stains super easily so I'll stay away from that. Oh nooo I love my Starbucks! But I guess it's a sacrifice I'll have to make. And I was definitely planning on getting some good mouthwash. I don't smoke so that's okay. That's awesome! I'm kind of iffy about the retainers too, especially the mold. I heard people gag and some people even puke lol grossss. Thank you so so much for the advice! <333

    1. Well, I am pretty tolerant to pain so it wasn't too bad at all for me. I've had worse contraptions in my mouth that were much worse compared to the braces haha. The only "pain" I'd say is the uncomfortable feeling the first week after you first get them, and the same feeling a few days after you get them tightened every month or two. When I first put them on, I didn't feel anything because they were essentially sticking the braces and attaching the wire. It's just when they tighten it feels uncomfortable but it gets better over time.

    2. I always got the darker colours to make my teeth look more white. I got the dark blue, greys and black. I didn't really want to bring that much attention to them by having like hot pink or alternating colours like they suggested.

    3. Other than using a regular brush, I was also given the mini orthodontic brush that looks like this to clean in between the braces. They always offered new ones each time I went in for free so that was great. And of course, flossing. It's not as easy with braces because you have to use these, but they should teach you how to use them.

    4. Yup, I never ate gum for those years because I didn't want to break anything. The first week was annoying because all I could eat was soup, jello and mashed potatoes and I personally hate soup, hahah. Slowly I was able to chew more so I got back to my old eating habits except for harder stuff. I also had to cut fruits in smaller pieces since you can't really just bite out of an apple, etc.

    5. Just know at the end it will be worth it because you will have beautiful teeth!

    Good luck, bb.
    Yeah, I've heard that's when it's the worst. Someone said it feels like all your teeth are loose and that it feels like you could pull them out. omggggasdfghjkl I feel like I'm pretty sensitive when it comes to my mouth though so I have no idea. :\ I hope it's more of an annoying feeling rather than actual pain ugh.
    I actually heard the same thing that they make your teeth look whiter! I'm actually thinking about getting black now hahah. I'm really bad at flossing regularly so that's definitely something I'm going to have to get better at haha. But, like I said, I don't want to have icky teeth so I'm using everything they give me. hahaha it's a good thing I'm a soup lover then, but I do feel like the no-eating-anything-hard-at-first part will suuuuck. I'm holding onto that silver lining! ahah thanks bb! <3

    Wet toilet paper doesn't work, I don't think? Putting toilet paper under the liquid latex is what works. I did put toilet paper under the liquid latex for my wounds, but I only put one layer rather than putting more and I didn't really rip them completely because I wanted to sort of look like a fresh zombie rather than one that had already been dead for weeks.
