Braces are not fun, let me tell you. Then again I had an orthodontist but they worked WONDERS on my teeth. Just make sure that you clean well with the braces.
Anyway, people shouldn't say anything about your braces. I mean there might be the one jerk face who says something (I have had several with my glasses... I kind of need to see with them), but just ignore them.
When in doubt: Duct tape it.
