I had braces for about two years. Its not as painful as you may think so don't worry too much. Only when the braces are tightened does it hurt a little. I had food such as soup and porridge whenever my braces were tightened. The food choice may not be as appealing but they actually taste nice. As for cleaning, id say to brush our teeth twice a day as normal but to also brush your teeth after you have eaten anything. You can purchase tooth brushes that have bristles in the shape of a v, makes it easier to clean the braces.

Initially braces hurt a lot. Not only will you be haunted by tooth ache but also your inner lip and mouth might get sore due to braces. But after a few months(max 2) , you will be alright. Your only concern would be tooth ache after tightening sessions. Your dentist might give you painkillers for the same . So it's gonna be alright. Avoid eating hard things during the entire process at all costs because brackets break off so easily! You would need Two brushes, one small and other your regular one for brushing.
