Hi..no need to worry. Discomfort will be there for two to three days only. After that you don't feel uncomfortable. Ceramic braces gives pleasant look as compared to metal.. Regards

Hello friend, Well, wearing braces is a new experience. You will of course have a new and different feeling for the initial few days. There might be slight discomfort in your gums due to the tight feeling. Your doctor might prescribe mild painkillers to put you at ease. Some patients also get ulcers and a simple gel application relieves them too. So, as you can see- some discomfort might be expected but it can easily be relieved with medicines. You will be able to speak normally and after getting used to the braces, you will be totally comfortable. Do not worry about the looks as ceramic brackets will be highly aesthetic. You can go for invisalign braces in case you are very concerned about looks. But they are costlier. All the best!
