So I’m getting braces soon only on one row of teeth and I just wanna know everything I need to know, do they hurt a lot and do you have to wear a retainer for the rest of your life?

For me the first 2 weeks hurt like motherfu**** but then it got better. You’ll have to eat soft foods and liquids only for the first few days or a week, can’t remember. But after that you’ll gradually be able to move to more solid foods. You’ll need to wear a retainer for the rest of your life, yes )) it’s not that bad though

They definitely hurt quite a bit to start with (even a couple of days after you get them fitted) so make sure that you have some soft foods! and they're also quite uncomfortable whenever you get them tightened (pain gets less and last for a shorter amount of time the more you get them tightened though)
Not sure about retainers

Nooo fr?! My teeth aren’t that bad ngl but does it bother you? Hopefully it might hurt less because I’m not getting braces on both sets

My teeth weren’t looking bad at all before braces, however I feel like my arch was not that great so it might be the reason why it hurt like that. It was uncomfortable. But it wasn’t that bad. I also got my braces only on my upper row first so....

Different people have different experiences for me on the first couple of days they were kind of painful not to bad and when your eating I suggest you have soft food because eating hard food hurts really bad. Also when u first get them they feel kind of weird in your mouth.But I promise those feeling only last for a few days and you’ll get used. Tightening the braces can be quite painful but again the pain goes away after a few days. I haven’t got my braces taken of so I don’t much about retainers. If u have any more any questions feel free to ask
