In brief: A great smile

You'll get a functional, esthetic, stable smile that you will be proud of.
On the way expect to experience some periodic soreness and tenderness, which you will find to be exceptionally manageable. Ask your qualified orthodontist for suggestions...He/she has lots of suggestions to help.

In brief: Braces pain

It depends on your pain tolerance.
I explain to patients that there teeth will be "tender" just like your muscles feel the day after you work out. Otc meds generally work well but , if needed, ask for a rx.
