My 9 year old son is getting braces put on tomorrow.. What color should he get?

He's only getting top braces. How did your on or daughter take it...did it hurt? I know nothing about braces.

  • White would be nice but if he eats anything with tomato sauce they will turn into a dingy orange unless he stays away from colored food that stains he will be fine with the white (they really look nice though) but if he eats all that good stuff for get it maybe blue as time goes by he is going to want to try all colors (not the girl colors though)...lol Have fun!


    I did not know a child could start wearing braces so young I thought maybe after 13 yrs. old atleast the adult teeth are coming out by then.  (Hmm?) GL

  • He wants to know what I think would be best so he doesn't get joked on.

  • I told him not to worry about other kids opinions but I was thinking clear if it bothers him.

  • Our son got the camo colors... He was a bit sore for a few days and then it eased up.

  • If it hurt, are you not going to get them?

  • not white b/c they'll turn colors (i've had braces) and not yellow bc well, bc at a glance it looks like your actual teeth are yellow.. and since it's your son, I would stay away from pinks and purples (unless he's one of those ultra manly men that's cool with wearing girl colors)... humm.. and black makes your mouth look gross (i know bc I've had black before). Soooo... I would go with either light blue, dark blue, light/dark green.. or.. orange..

  • No louise2 he will still get them if it hurts didn't need a sarcastic remark and didn't know it was a big deal to wonder if it will hurt my son. Go find another question to harp on.
