Yes. And every time they tighten them. And when you get hit in the mouth. And when a rubber band breaks and smacks your lip.

No, but take an ibuprofen ASAP because they will hurt in a few hours and the next day. The first tightening hurts more than when they put them on, but all the ones after that aren't too bad. Good luck :)

Oh my gosh yes! Everyone before they get braces want them, but they are SOO wrong. It really sucks. But a good note is that sometimes you can take pain reliever.

Don't freak out. :) Getting braces won't hurt. They may be a little uncomfortable if it's your first time having them but it won't last. When I first had my braces I really thought they would hurt and I was shocked that they didn't hurt at all. Down side is that it will be a little hard to eat for a couple of days since your teeth will be very sensitive. Just go with soft diet for a little while. ;)Few tips I could give you if you do get braces:1. Be careful. I'm sure you don't want anything/anyone to accidentally hit your mouth or your teeth because that would really be uncomfortable for you.2. Go for soft foods like soups, yogurts, ice creams, and etc. You won't be able to chew hard foods for a few days since your teeth are still adjusting to the pressure from the braces.3. If it gets too painful, take some meds or go visit your dentist.:))

I've heard from friends that it's when they're tightened that it hurts but not terribly, maybe agitating would describe it, all second hand info, though. They also say its worth it.
