Am getting dental W-Expander?

So in a week I will be getting A W expander in my teeth. any suggestions on care before and after are appreciated! What does it feel like after? does it hurt when its being put in?? HELP!
its under the Quead helix

It's not that bad. I had one when I had my braces. It is a little uncomfortable sure, but nothing horrible. I was eating sliced peaches one day & got one caught under was very hard to get it out! You dental provider will give you specific instructions I'm sure. It may be a little harder to pronoucne words, but you get used to it. Remember, in the end it will all be worth it!
