ceramic or metallic braces do not cause hair fall. teeth do not become loose due to braces. ear ache or neck pain could be due to eruption of wisdom tooth. so visit a dentist for the same. if not, then it could also be due to throat infection. you need to consult an ENT for that.
Braces does not cause any of the above mentioned problems.It is safe.
If you have neck pain and earache you need to check for any wisdom teeth infection or visit an ENT to rule out any ear infection.

Hi friend. We need to breakdown your query into points to have a clear understanding.
Braces do not have any effect on hair.
Teeth don't become loose normally. But if the dentist uses excessive forces to move the teeth or if you don't maintain proper hygiene then teeth may become mobile temporarily.
Earache and soreness of throat is not a direct effect of braces.
Regarding sore throat and earache, plz get yourself checked by a dentist to rule out the possibility of wisdom tooth problem which may cause earache. If that is ruled out, the you may see an ENT consultation.
The best way forward for you is to be expressive to the dentist. You must express all your fears to the dentist who is treating you so that your fears can be allayed. Hope that helps!
Hi , First of all braces be it ceramic or metallic does not cause hair fall ,loose teeth. Pain in neck & earache may be due to other reasons such as sore throat or cold if you are suffering from that or you can visit your physician for that. Please do not discontinue the braces treatment as it will cause more teeth problems later.
Braces has no effect on hair and is not gonna cause lose teeth in future.
Secondly ear ache with difficulty in swallowing is an indication of throat infection and not related to braces
Your should see a physician for the same .
