Getting braces

So I’m leaning into getting braces in order to stop my teeth from grinding together and the whole process is making me feel a little nervous. I’ll be 22 this year and I know people of all ages get them but all my friends went through braces and all of them got there’s removed already and I’m over here feeling some type of way.

I get the feeling I’m gonna be embarrassed over them and self conscious. A night guard was an option for me but it’s not a solution to fix everything because my teeth grinding will still be present.

So I knew braces would be more beneficial to me in the long run.

I’ve spent time looking at YouTube videos about braces and they sound like a hassle. I’ve looked into my options and I’m wanting ceramic ones since they’re more concealed.

Is there any advice or just anything that would make me feel better about braces.
