It'll last a good few days, for now it's soup, milky milk and soft stuff.


Just ride it out, it'll pass.

Lots of tylenol. Eat mashed potatos, ice cream, pudding, anything soft. It's gonna hurt like a mother for a week or so.

Welcome to the worst part of your life.



True. A shitload of hot drinks - tea, coffee, etc - will help. Apparently, they ease the pain because they temporarily bend the metal a wee bit. Apart from that, eat soup and those other recommendations that I'm too lazy to write^

use your tongue to push food to the top of your mouth and crush it. Only works with chip like substances. it should only last for about a week. but the pain returns every time they put a new wire on...

Omg guys. Tough it out. Whenever i got mine tightened I downed a Steak that night. It doesn't hurt that much....

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
I had braces. don't use them as an electric conductor and you'll be fine. And don't eat KBars... But MOST OF ALL!!! DON'T go up the road for a game of back yard cricket at ya mates place after getting hassled alot and called traintracks (hahaha traintracks traintracks!!) only to faceplant off a fence whilst retrieving the ball onto the edge of a concrete block consequently forcing your brand new (day of fitting) braces to become severely attached to your upper lip and in the process brake your arm... It's not pretty, honest.

The pain lasted after i got mine on for about 2 weeks at the least, but that was because my teeth were really bad. After every appointment though after that for awhile it hurt just as bad and just as long.

I've broken both my wrists at the same time, my collar bone 2 different time, and i still stand by braces hurts/sucks way more than those.

yeah, they're awful for the first week or two. i remember feeling as though my teeth were just going to fall out any minute. you'll get quite a few canker sores as well at first, until your lips/cheeks toughen up or readjust themselves. i've got them now, i was supposed to have them for two years, i've had them for one so far and i think i'm ahead of schedule. i'm not limited in the foods i can eat at all really, except for things like whole fruits (apples, pears) and corn on the cob. As soon as i get these fuckers off, i'm going to town on about 5 caramel apples.

but really the pain isn't bad, i've never been bothering by the tightening...


My mind is going. I can feel it.

haha i'm not too sure about the caramel apples. Your teeth will feel so loose afterwards, that you think they might just fall off.

50 bucks to anyone who on their first day of getting braces, eats:
two large bags of beef jerky
1 10 ounce T bone steak
and 2 year old hard-tack....

beware of hard-tack... i cut my hand with that stuff onece, and its susposed to be edible
#32
Good luck. The next 1-2 years are going to suck. Girls won't find you attractive, cleaning your teeth is harder, and you can't eat solid foods every so often.

The pain of initially gettign braces lasted me about a week n a half. It hurts for 2-3 days everytime I get them tightened.

I lived off ice cream when I first got my braces. Ice cream is your friend.

I got braces just 3 months ago. I'm not supposed to have chips, popcorn, gum, ice, etc.

But I have chips...

And the spacers weren't that bad, but my braces hurt really bad for a few days.

You will be okay.

Unless they put a " power chain" on your front teeth...

That hurts.
