BRACES....any answer would help :)?
I just got the new Damon braces on Yest. How long is it going to hurt? What foods did you cheat and eat? What were the easiest food you ate all the time? And how about that wax stuff? ThanX!!

They will not hurt long! Dont worry, i have had them for two years, mine hurt for 3 days.. thats it. I ate mashed potatoes, ice cream, yougurt and macaroni and cheese. The wax helps if you put it on the spot that is rubbing up against your jaw. Just make sure to take it out before you eat or you will swallow it. I promise you, you will be fine and the pain doesnt last long at all. dont listen to butts who try to tell you they hurt forever, they dont. I will pray for you...... Hope for the best!

it'll hurt for a couple days, maybe a week. that wax stuff? hate it. i dont have braces, but i have spacers, and im getting braces may 25. stay away from caramel, taffy, and popcorn. if that stuff gets stuck in ur braces, u'll never get it out and it hurts like crap.

Hang in there (the results are great)! But for the first couple of days they are going to hurt, just eat soft foods! ex. soup, icecream, jello, pudding and in about a week you can start eating the basic normal foods!!!

for a long time , nah its only temporary

?obody special
It depends on how well you take pain, when I got my braces the only thing that hurt were the spacers. A little when they would tighten them,but that's about it. I would always chew gum! I couldn't help it I LOVE GUM! I never had a problem with the gum sticking,but its up to you!If you want to chew gum but still afraid it will get stuck, try Freedent gum its guaranteed not to stick on dental work. Also if you find it pain-full to chew,like at first I couldn't really bite into anything, try sticking to softer food, but be care full with bread because it sticks in your braces like crazy! I really recommend the wax if you find that a bracket is rubbing against your cheeks then grab a little piece roll it in a ball and stick it on the offending bracket. Remember to take it off before eating or else you'll have wax in your stomach!

the wax is pointless, in like 2 or three days your mouth will be tough enough that the braces wont hurt... eat jello, ice cream, soup... anything soft.. work your way up to more solid foods... itll pass in no time at all

the more i see, the less i know
i cheated and chewed gum and ice even tho i wasnt supposed to. never broke anything tho. didnt use the wax much cuz i didnt really have a problem with my braces rubbing the inside of my lips. but just chewing gum helps the pain go away faster.

For awhile, I used to drink hot water when it really hurt. There really is no cheating if you brush your teeth. Easiest foods were mushy like potatoes. Wax, it to keep it from cutting the inside of you mouth, it doesn't always work. Good Luck!:)

it feels more comfortable when you mouth gets used to the braces last about 2 or 3 days just dont eat ice it will break em right off

from me to you
Pain is only temporary. The wax stuff is great!!

They don't hurt long at all just when you first get them put on until you get used to them. I had to wear them from the age of 11 till I was 18. The wax stuff helps if there is a spot that is rubbing against your mouth or if something is poking out. I basically ate whatever I wanted when I had braces. With the acception of a few things. Just be careful NOT to chew gum or eat foods that will get stuck in the braces or that could damage them. Use your own disgression.

Firstly, don't worry. I have braces currently. For the first few hours after I had them on, it just felt weird. It didn't hurt, but it just felt tight and uncomfortable. Swilling water around in my mouth helped to ease that feeling. The wax was useless - it tasted horrid, got stuck in the brace and I think they just gave it out as a sort of 'reassurance' device. It proved completely useless.

Then the pain set it. For about a week, my teeth hurted whenever I crunched them together. Within two weeks however, the pain was gone. Within three weeks, the braces felt normal. I could eat completely normally. Now, after about a year, I don't notice they're there.

I can now eat all the foods I did before, except for apples (the skin gets stuck). Soup and ice cream are the two best foods to eat if your teeth hurt. You don't need to do any biting. Heh.

Good luck. The pain's a small price to pay for perfect teeth.
