Here's what other kids had to say:

Well, I'm not getting braces. I'm getting space maintainers. I havn't seen mine, but I've been told I need a specail pair. That means more $$$$$ to them. :(

@CakeIsStolen- Ice cream... Aw yeah. I had braces. I wasn’t the only one in my class though, this other boy got braces almost the same time as me. I got them off last year, but I wear a retainer at night though. I like braces better than retainers. You know, other kids in my class said they needed braces too. I didn’t feel so… geeky… anymore, especially since that other guy had braces.

im should be getting some soon as in 10 months

i have braces i got the top on in october and i just got the bottoms on all my friends and my sister r getting theres off :( oh well

@cooky115 braces dont hurt when u first get the on but they hurt pretty soon when ur teeth start 2 move. take a TON of tylenol (max dose 4 u) right after u get them on.

im in fifth grade and am getting braces. The colors are going to be lime green (my fav. color) and purple(my second fav. color) the orthodontist has a giant panda bear in his office! :-)

I'm 11 and I have braces. I think that's pretty early, I'm in 5th grade. I'm the only one, but now everyone in my class wants braces. Weird.

I used to have braces and when I had them it stunk but now I want to have them again.Another thing,everybody says braces hurt but they dont,they just make your teeth sore.When I had braces I also cheated a lot...

Yes, I got them on 2 weeks ago! They don't hurt at all, and my front teeth have gotten all the way strait in 2 weeks!

NNOO!i hate them like heck.they tear skin off of my lips. scrape skin off make my lips bleed.my final answer is _no.
