Question:

What does it feel like when your bracket breaks in your mouth?

I'm getting braces really soon and i have an over bite and my dad said brackets hurt when they brake and is there any other things that i wil need to know for braces.?

Answer:

Im not sure what you're dad is saying but thats not true. I had this braces thing called the Herbst appliance and it was bars, screws, caps and brackets all over and one time i broke them eating a fruit roll up (i balled it up and chewed on it and the first chew it broke) and it felt maybe a little pressure but no pain it just popped off. Also for braces once you get them it will hurt for a few days but you can put wax on the brackets to prevent irritation on your lips. Also eat soft foods the first few days so it won't hurt. Also make sure you brush your teeth after every meal! Because with braces your teeth build plaque very quickly and if you don't take care of them you get many cavities, puffy gums, and when your braces come off you have stains from them. Good luck getting your braces!
