When braces are tightened does it hurt as much and for as long as when they are first put on?
Yes it does.
Most of the time, getting your braces tightened is painful yes although I don't remember it being quite as painful to get them tightened as it was when I got them put on initially.
They hurt for the first few days, and you wont want to eat anything solid or crunchy. I recommend oatmeal for the first day you get yours on. After a few days to a week they wont hurt anymore. Also they will hurt when you get them tightened.
They can hurt for a couple of days to a couple of weeks, depends on the amount of braces and the person.
You can eat mashed vegetables, yogurt, milkshakes with fruits, pudding, and any other soft food. I have that same question, how long do I eat it for ? Usually if you just got braces they will hurt for a week or two but if you just got them tightened the pain will only last afew days
What should i expect with my new braces How long will they hurt Im only getting them on my 4 front teeth so i don't know if that will affect how much they hurt Please help!!?
Your teeth will hurt every time you get the braces adjusted or tightened at the orthodontist's office, but ask your orthodontist if there are things you can do beforehand (such as taking a mild pain reliever) to alleviate that discomfort. Outside of that, hang in there, and know that the results are worth it.
about a week but it won't hurt alot
If it is a retainer only two or three days you get used to them after that but I don't know how long train track braces hurt for about a week and a half I'd say they would be sore if they were train tracks
It depends on how much work you had done and how long it takes. Your jaws will probably hurt but my dentist said some people don't feel anything. So to answer your question It may or may not hurt after.
To be honest, that would be a question that you ask your Orthodontist. Check out this website to find out more about braces: http://www.bracesinfo.com/ And don't worry, I have had braces for 5 years. It doesn't hurt when they are put on OR when taken off. :)
Not really The Orthodontist can hurt you putting them in but this is rare. Your teeth can Ache but again this is rare, does not hurt much and will not last long
Nope, the retainer is fitted to suit your teeth so as long as you wear it often your teeth will always fit in it and will not hurt.
as long as the tail is removed first.
It depends on the person. I got braces and it started to hurt about 3 hours after getting them put on. The second day was way worse, with pain so bad, I needed Ibuprofen. I needed Ibuprofen for about 5 days before I could live with the soreness of the braces. As I said, it depends on the person and what they are getting fixed. I had an overbite and my teeth weren't lined up… Read More
I went to the orthodontist today. On the first day I went they did molds and x-rays. At the second visit they will tell you what they need to do to your teeth, such as, orthopedic care or getting braces. Then on your third visit they will give you braces, however this is only if you need braces.
well... i have had them on and they don't hurt alot .. the pain will go in 5-6 days. you wills till be able to eat. so that's a good thing
i think u mean how long does it take before your braces hurt any way i got mine about 6 hours ago mine felt weird for about 1 hour and then they started hurting and the rest of the day they were sour but every one is different mine hurt so soon because i have REALLY bad crowding and my teeth were just moving in a few weeks it will all be gone
As a former and recent adult brace wearer, I'll answer this question by focusing on the word "hurt." Kids, I believe, are definitely more reactive to physical pain. So, if you are speaking of physical pain, perhaps braces do hurt more on kids. However, children's teeth move more easily too, so maybe they have an edge on adults there. On the other hand, as an adult, I had to go through a lot of emotional… Read More
No, usually after several visits you would get a screening and then they would make an app. for you to get braces. It normally takes a LONG time. (it did for me)
About 1 to 2 weeks, I would say.c=
Ok it will be fine. I have braces and so does the other people who edited this. ( i (dolphinlover) actually got my bottom ones today after getting my top ones a long time ago) For the first day (after a couple of hours having them), your braces REALLY hurt when you bite/chew. For the first day/second day you should eat things like: Mashed potatoes yogurt pudding liquids Soft cheese (like feta or cottage) Pasta… Read More
It depends, 2 or 3 years is an avarage, but the first results may be visible after a few months already.
It takes about an hour to apply braces.
He first got his braces on December 20th 2011. So he wore them for about a year. And on Twitter, a few months ago he said that he his getting his braces off in 6 months in the new year ! So he is most likely to be getting his braces off this month.
Well for me it took about a week, but it varies between people. It could take you a few days to 2 weeks. TRUST ME on this: DO NOT TRY TO CHEW ONCE YOU GET BRACES! It hurts really really bad. Even TOUCHING your braces hurt. Stick to soup, ice cream, Jell-O, yogurt, and Pastina.
it takes about 45 minutes to an hour for braces
I think that he had his braces for 4 years
Well, my dentist said that i would be getting my braces off last week. So i went in for my appt. and i thought it was going to take a long time, but it only took about an hour and i didn't hurt all that much. I'm so glad to have them off my teeth. Thank god!
For the first two weeks or so it feels very weird and sore but then you get kind of used to it...
I have never heard of someone having braces for that long. If it is nessecary, then I don't see why you couldn't have braces on for that long. Is it normal? Not really. Is it nessecary? It might be.
It usually takes 60-80 minutes to get braces on
You Can Be Any Age And Get Braces As Long As You Have All Adult Teeth.
Why would you want braces?
Any type of gum as long as it ruins ur braces
It hurts when you make them at first, of if they get really long and heavy. But most of the time they don't hurt at all.
When you eat popcorn with braces it is a long process first you have to eat around the little nut thing then you have to (this is an option) brake off the popcorn pieces around the nut and eat the shavings.:)
Yes, as long as you only don't have them every day. Trust me I have Braces.
Dental braces were invented in the year 400BC. This was a very long time ago. Dental braces are used to straighten out the teeth.
Well in my opinion, they didn't hurt at all. They are just uncomfortable when getting them on, sure you have painful times like getting ulcers but people get them when they don't have braces anyway and they can be cured quickly with lotion. don't be scared about getting them, they aren't painful in the slightest and if you have them on as long as I do, you forget you have them anyway haha... I have… Read More
Braces are mostly kept on for about 2 years but can be longer. It just depends on what you need them for.
You have to wear braces for two years normally. If you don't need them for that long it is for only one year. Hope I could be of help!
you can not get your braces off faster because you need braces if your teeth are not allinged well. that means that you are going to need braces for as long as your teeth need them. that is usually for quite a while.
Most people have braces for 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 years.
about 6 months
Until they come off, they really suck don't they? Just wait, 2-12 years from now it'll feel like your teeth are being removed when they rip them off with pliers. Have fun! :)
24/7 except for eating and brushing for the first 12 months after braces and then every night for the next twelve months
neck gear, bands (rubber bands), headgear and bigger braces all do the same thing. If you have an overbite or under bite then they make them more strait and if you have a under bite or overbite then your upper or lower teeth more develop. The only thing that is different about them is that some take long to strait your teeth and some take longer. (The head/neck gear and bigger braces take a shorter… Read More
As long as you brush your teeth while you have your braces, there will be no marks. I had no marks on my teeth when my braces were removed. Another student in my school, however, never brushed her teeth and when her braces were removed she actually had brown bands on her teeth. ~ T
You can be any age as long as you have all your adult teeth, or if your dentist feels it is appropriate to put braces on your teeth.
Niall Horan from one direction has braces but not for long he is schedueled to get them removed sometime in April. ~XOXO Gossipgirl
sex is normally only a bit painful for woman the first time.
The amount of time someone needs to wear braces is highly dependent on how badly the individual needed braces to begin with. On average however, people wear braces for approximately 2 years.
