    got mine tightened a few hours ago, its always the same teeth that hurt the most, i feel you! nobody else can understand the deep pain you get right inside the bone of your jaw its horrendous

    but each time you get it tightened/thicker wires/power chains/elastic bands the pain gets much easier, eating cold watermelon, mash potatoes and jelly are all great during the painful times.

    ive had my braces on for nearly 2 years now and im in year12, not expecting them off until end of year 13 wbu

    So i got my top braces fitted today and they put a small thin wire in to move them slowly and get some progress goin.



    On the bottom however apparently the wire had snapped(i didn't even know, maybe i have hard brushing or something xD) but to stop the wire from snapping the second time, today they put in one of the meatiest wires i've seen.

    It's literally 3-4 times the thickness of the wire they put on my top teeth

    Rub a pound of fat on your chin to fix the problem.

    I remember every time I had my braces tightened I couldn't eat for several days. I didn't take any painkillers tho, I just had to deal with. As for food I had stuff like smoothies, soup, mash etc.
    It's weird to think that it was 4 years ago
