  • Braces

    Got them fitted in today and they hurt like fuck....

    Any advice on how to ease the pain other than painkillers (they never work).

    And any tips on how to eat/brush....the dentist wasn't really very informative, he just told me to lay of the fizzy drinks and chocolate 2:-$2

          Just chill... the pain will subside. Take care of your braces, and go to the orthodontist on time. damn it, i've had my braces on since march 2001. and im gonna have them on until may. cause i missed like alot of oppontments

            the pain lasts for about 2-3 days then it stabilizes...i never messed with tylenol or anything because the pain was never that great for me when i had braces (not to mention before i had gotten braces, i had 4 teeth extracted so in comparison to that, braces always seemed to me like a relatively painless thing)...


            dentist should've suggested not to chew gum, not to eat hard foods, not to eat a lot of fried foods...you might want to get yourself some flouride to accompany your toothpaste (ask the dentist first) and the dentist should have given you these little brushes (i think they're called proxipicks?) that get in between the wires and can clean out food particles, etc...

            the problem with hard foods (i can't speak on gum because when i had braces i stopped chewing on gum) is that they can disconnect the brackets and that can slow down the amount of time necessary to keep the braces on...you're probably going to have to brush a lot more or at least have more visits to get a flouride cleaning...

                  Yeah, getting them tightened is a bastard. The pain goes away after a day or so, though.

                  I hated having braces...so happy when I got them out (I)

                    ya, after each visit when the orthodontist tightens the wire, it will hurt for like 3 days and you wont be able to chew hard foods like some subway for example. Even eating like oranges will hurt. That sucked ass but when you see the space between your teeth disappearing, you will deal with the pain. And yeah you better brush often cause there is food caught everywhere and your mouth will stink if you dont brush often, or drink some juice or eat some candy often. Use a mouthwash with fluoride too or you'll have holes in your teeth in places where your toothbrush cant reach.

                        yeah, except when they get you all excited to get your braces off, your finally getting them off and then BOOM "oh, and by the way, you need to wear retainers for another year" man i was pissed, because they never told me in advance, i never expected that at all...but definately wear the retainers because they keep your teeth from moving back all crooked, if you don't you'll have to get braces put back on and that would suck

                            Yeah, you'll get used to the pain, it may feel like your teeth will fall out, but they won't.
                            Braces suck, but you'll benefit of them, believe me.
                            I only hope you're not the dentists guinea-pig like i was. It took him forever to get them tightend every week.

                            Can't give you anymore tips, all above are

                              I don't think i'll have a problem with a retainer it's just the pressure at the moment is annoying and i'm taking these painkillers that don't even ease the pain....lol
