Short answer: No. Getting braces on is entirely painless, however, you may experience mild discomfort in the 1-2 days following the initial placement of braces or after a major wire change. This discomfort may be managed with regular pain relief as you would for a headache.

Do braces hurt?
How much does it cost?
The cost of braces is dependent on different factors including treatment severity, type of brace used and whether it includes one or both arches and which appliance is used. Your orthodontist will provide detailed quotations at your discussion visit.
Who can have braces?
There is no age limit for wearing braces. We have some of our most successful and rewarding treatment outcomes with adult patients. The traditional age for braces are in early teens, which is primarily due to the bone growth occurring at this age.
