It varies... probably like $1500-$4000, it totally depends on how out of place your teeth are and if you need any extra work done.

The only things that can happen are:
1. They get caught on the inside of your mouth. It's going to hurt, but just rip it loose. It's happened to me many times.
2. You get hit in the face with the ball and one of them gets broken off. I've had my braces for about 8 months now and I've done that 3 times already (twice eating hard foods, once taking a soccer ball in the face).
You really don't have to worry that much. If you want, the orthodontist will sell/give you a mouthguard that fits around your braces.. I've never bothered to get one though because it fits on both the top andn bottom teeth.
