My dentist has been urging my mother to let him put braces on me. I am in junior high, and I have small gaps between several of my front teeth that I would like to get rid of, but braces scare me a little.
If there is a limited range of movement, then won't it hurt when the braces are pushing and pulling on my teeth to force the gaps to close? I don't want to be dealing with constant pressure and pain for years.
Also, will braces really push them together enough to fill these gaps? Yes, they are fairly small, but if there is not much movement possible, will this be enough?
