It will be sore for a couple of hours, but rest assured it will stop in a few days. Avoid hard foods and you will be fine.

Not Really, i have them myself. the place i went to i just got to watch a movie when they put them in. its a little uncomforatable at some parts but it doesnt really hurt. the most is sometimes its usually sore afterwards, but it'll go away in a bit.

Honestly, for me, it was excruciating. I used to cry because I was so hungry but it hurt too much to eat. It doesn't hurt all the time, just when you first get them on and whenever they tighten them. I think my pain tolerance has gone up a lot since I was a kid, but yeah I remember wanting to murder my orthodontist.

When they put them on it doesnt hurt at all. But usually later that night they start to get sore. Then the next day they will hurt so bad its almost excruciating.It hurts to eat anything (even drink). All you'll wanna do is lay around for a day or two. Usually by the 3rd or 4th day they are just a little sore.The only time after that would be if they rub your lips raw or the inside of your mouth,So don't freak out if you see tiny blisters in your mouth.But they do give you wax to put on the places that are rubbing you (: It also hurts really bad when you get them tightened. I got mine tightened yesterday.

Exactly! The tightening hurts more than getting them put on or taken off.

for me, the elastic bands hurt most of all. and they wanted me to wear it like 24/7 but i didnt because i literally could not open my mouth at all and they did not get that i had to be able to speak at least a tiny bit. my dentist was so stupid.

it hurts for a few days after you get them on. the pain should go away eventually. I have had braces, and I was dealing with canker sores in my mouth for like the first 3-4 months. if you've tried everything for the canker sores and nothing is working, there is hope. there is an over the counter mouthwash you can get at your pharmacy, called Prevention. it tastes nasty, but the results are worth it. Use it at night, because if you use it at night that gives it a chance to work overnight. the canker sore will be almost gone by morning. use it every night as a preventative measure to prevent any future canker sores, or use it just as needed.

Here's the thing. It doesn't hurt when you get them on, it's just a pinch or two. But, if you have a high pain threshold like I do, you won't feel or show any pain for about a half hour to an hour. If you do not have a high pain threshold, it will begin to hurt by the time you get in your car. Really, you can only eat mashed potatoes (and even a spoon hurts your mouth), and drink water or milk. If you have it bad like me, you will get metal bands. These bands go on your molars and pinch your gums. But that doesn't come for a while. Hope you're okay!

It was not painful for my son, but was for my daughter when they were first applied, but neither of them had a bad case. However, my son was older when he got his. There will be discomfort and soreness when applied and tightened. There is an art to eating with braces, my son ate whatever he wanted, such as biting into an apple. They will cut the interior of the mouth if hit, my son discover when playing sports. Having said that both of my kids now have beautiful teeth and would got through it all over if neccessary. BTW both had to have a fernectomy (spelling?) to cut back the muscle between the front teeth after the braces were removed or the teeth would seperate. This was much worse than the braces.

They hurt until you get used to them. I would recommend going to doctor King in Brandermill. He has all sorts of games and things and you can even win prizes. pads,d.S.3, wII,ext. So don't be scared because the first day I got mine I got to eat ice cream and a shake because the ortho recomended it. It is also a convient place near lots of fast food places and sit down resturaunts and stores. One last thing I could not eat the first day because it hurts so bad.So if ortho says you can eat something, eat everything. I hope this helped and good luck. Depending on how bad your teeth are you might have them for a while. I have mine for 2 years and still have them on. You also can not eat popcorn, ice, gummy candy( gummy orms,starburst,ext.)Lots of restrictions but you will have good teeth.

for me, when i got them on there was just a little bit of pressure but it didnt hurt. then after a few hours, it really ached so if you are getting them on, make sure you take ibuprofen or something else right after you get them on so it delays when it starts aching.

When I got braces it didn't hurt when they were applied, but when they were tightened(to align the teeth) I had a dull pain. As for length of time it varies from person to person. As for the cutting of the lips or inner mouth, they have a special kind of wax for that. as for foods, I agree with others. Eat soft foods (if you plan on eating right after the check ups.

It does hurt when you are getting them on but when they put the wire on and close the brackets it does. It's just tight and hurts because your teeth are being pulled to the certain position that the wire is aligning them to be. After that it usually only hurts when you get them tightened. But you can get canker sores and those hurt a lot. Hope you the best with them! Oh and I recommend not having bread for the first couple days unless you want to have a heck of a time trying to lick it out of your braces.. gross but true..

It doesn't hurt when you get the actual braces on...as well it doesn't hurt for the next hour or so AFTER they're on. The glue taste HORRIBLE though. :P Also, for the next 1-3 weeks, you will be very sore and most likely your mouth will be cut up from the braces and not used to it. Don't worry at all though, this all go's away. I got braces in 2009. They stayed on for a year, then i got them off for 2 years. (In that time i had a retainer.)

It doesn't hurt, but it makes your mouth sore. You'll get your wires changed every once in a while, and that'll make our mouth sore too. Well, actually, my friend has braces an she says she has scars on her lips from them. I had braces for 2 years (and I'm proud to say I got them off recently) and I never had any problems. It really depends on how sensitive you are, and how your face is built. OK, that sounded weird.

I have braces right now (metal), I've had them for about a year. When I first got mine the problem was more discomfort than pain. (It's like when you clench your teeth while you sleep and they're sore in the morning) They definitely do cut your cheeks and lips and all that.. you could use wax, I find that if I 'tough' it out it goes away faster and doesn't come back in the same spots. I go in once a month to get my wires changed and everything tightened, for me the first couple days after that are painful. (I usually have smoothies for breakfast/lunch/dinner) but after that I barely notice I even have them! Good luck with your braces!

I just got braces yesterday. When they put the braces on it isnt sore (like many people tell you) but the only part that kind of hurts, is when they are opening your mouth really wide to get the braces in. But after about an hour or so of having them in , it starts to get sore. To help the soreness go away you can take Advil or Tylenol. Also before you go to bed, rinse some warm water an salt (although it doesnt taste very good, it dampens the pain.) The next morning it will hurt a little more, so take some more Tylenol or Advil. Also my orthodontist said it would be a good idea not to eat hard food for at least 24 hr. after you get your braces. He said the pain should go away faster, and you should get used to them if you stick on soft food for at least 3 days. I've been eating pudding, mashed potatoes, yogurt, ice cream :) and all that stuff. Hope the pain in your braces goes away soon :)
