Default Re: Braces?

Braces are horrible, in my opinion. I have to go every six weeks to get something changed, and I come back and have 2-4 days of pain. When I first got them on, it hurted for like a week. You can't have anything! But it's worth it.

Forbidden Foods

Hard candy
Caramel
Taffy
Hard bread crusts
Pizza crust
Hard nuts
Tacos
Tortilla chips
Corn Nuts
Popcorn
Jerky
Corn on the cob
Dried fruit
Cut these into bite-sized pieces:

Bagels
Apples
Raw carrots
Raw celery
Avoid chewing:

Gum
Ice
Bones
Be aware of the hidden sugar in:

Jelly
Syrup
Honey
Sugared cereals
Breakfast rolls
Catsup
Desserts
Sodas
Brush your teeth immediately after eating sweets. If you are unable to brush, rinse your mouth with water.

Oh, and you can't have suckers, snickers, twix (basically nothing with nuts, caramel, and is really hard.)

check your pain killer medication
how long does it take to start working
take it that long before your braces are put on
then when they put on the braces it doesn't hurt so bad.

If you have sensitive teeth, when they put on the super glue, they harden it with a super strong light, and it can be really hot... my teeth hurt while that was happening cuz i have sensitive teeth. The glue tastes HORRIBLE so my mom took me for ice cream after, and then it tasted good xD you should do that, or a milkshake........ something tasty and liquid-y LOL

as for eating hard foods, one, it depends on the braces, 2, well, do you really want to crunch down when your mouth is hurting? no, probably not. i started eating hard foods again once they stopped hurting.

Congrats on getting braces, it is something that really helps your mouth look better!

P.S. if you are getting the colored rubber band kind (i didn't ) you should do red and blue! (4th of july) LOL
, Also if you have to get the rubber bands (The ones in the back of your mouth) They hurt as well, but most people don't get them for about 6 months I guess

I got them like the 3rd or fourth time. I had to wear them at night in the front so it kept my mouth shut and hard to talk, THEN I had to wear them to school. (in the front on each side) and at lunch it hurt so bad.
