How It Feels To Get Braces

Thomas Dilworth, Reporter

When you are in the office you will naturally be scared and that’s because they put metal wires in your mouth.

First they polish and dry your mouth by sticking metal coin shaped things in your cheeks to dry your mouth.They also put cheek separators in to keep the cheeks out of the way. The doctor will sterilize your teeth with a U.V. light that the is somewhat  hot.

Getting the braces themselves put on doesn’t hurt at all.They stick a metal wire through the braces to hold them together. This also the wire they cut to tighten the braces to straighten the teeth. Your teeth will hurt for a few days while you get used to the tension.  I just go mine and my teeth hurt but I will only have them for 22-24 months.
