I got braces today and they hurt like HELL! I'm already marking down the imaginary calendar until 2 years when they take them off.
=P
wait...
=X
that's what I look like now =X lol

If you wear braces go ahead and tell us here. If not, enjoy!
I know that they won't hurt so much after awhile by the way.

MASS EDIT: I just noticed the sticky. Darn. I'm sorry, but maybe this thread could be used for people that have them to talk about them in general. Trash on site if need be.

I got my braces last July (My dentist suddenly decided I needed them) and I get them off next January hopefully if my orthodontist doesn't screw up. The first day is the worst; my orthodontist added too much metal to the door of the braces, so it snapped and cut my cheek.

Not to sound demotivational or anything, but braces aren't going to be any fun. They always get food stuck, and often times brackets fall off or get loose.
So did you have any pain about a week after you first got them?

I have braces... they grind into my gums.
I get them off soon! YAY!
I nearly had a root canal twice, and nearly had braces twice. How I didn't get them I'll never know...
You lucky [censored]

I don't remember exactly. I think they were a little sore for me, but nothing like the first few days. After two weeks it stops hurting, but you still have to be careful about what you eat, and they're going to be a pain until the day they get removed.

Also, what type of braces do you have (Metal, porcelain, etc). I chose metal over porcelain since I didn't want my braces continuously breaking.
Metal was chosen FOR me but I agreed happily. I heard the porceline ones turn yellow after awhile =P GAH =X
I don't care about food; I wan't the pain to go away lol. They got worse since when I made the thread today.

EDIT: I noticed that too (about the yoshis) maybe somebody should make a thread so all the yoshis can gather in one place XD

I don't remember exactly when I got braces, but it seems I get them off by the end of this year. They actually never hurt bad for me, but, yesterday, my dentist put some kind of "connectors" to reduce the empty space between my teeth. Goddammit they hurt like hell. I almost can't eat anymore.
My ortho said 2 years ago that I would need them but he seems to have been wrong :o

^Pretty much why I don't.
I couldnt take it anymore so i pulled it all out. all that crappy metal and all. (yes im dumb) but no one has noticed or taken me to the orthadontist in awhile so: yay! no braces now! =D
but theres still dry glue. =S

--------------------
^_*

I had braces not too long ago.....had them for only 5 months.
The reason is that they kept breaking and the dentist of mine said that I might as well have them taken off, so I did. My teeth aren't bad at all really, just two teeth, so i'm glad!
meh

Same here.

Just an opinion, but for some people, braces are more trouble than they're worth. And dentists try to find the smallest problem to suggest braces for fixing, in order to make a quick (large) buck.

They change your life and they're expensive, and a huge hassle. My opinion to people is that you shouldn't get braces unless you REALLY need them.

I actually need them. If we didn't get them now, my teeth would be grinding into my gums everytime I closed my jaw when I would be older. I have a REALLY bad overbite and that's the main problem. My orthodontist is a nice guy. I'm pretty sure he's not trying to be cheap.

Well they are SLIGHTLY better now, but it still hurts a lot even to chew food. I ate a banana today and it was annoying to eat. Lol. I can't imagine eating a steak 0.o That would be impossible as of now. It should be a bit better by tomorrow or Saturday.

I had braces for five years. Five cocking years. You guys can't complain.
I have respect for you...so are they super straight now?

After a little over a week, they should be like a part of your teeth. You wont even think about it in a few weeks. I agree, the first week is terrible.

Did you neglect your braces, or were your teeth bad?
