No. The dentist would always be sure your teeth were healthy before putting the braces on. If you had over-lapping teeth (your teeth are too large to let others come in aligned your dentist may pull the odd one) before the braces are applied.

Don't worry... the soreness will get away soon. Just hang in there.
