    When does this occur? Is it when you talk / open your mouth or just at random times?

    When I press on my teeth with my tongue.

    Yes that is normal. It's probably just the wires adjusting to the movement of your teeth (braces temporarily make your teeth looser as they are being moved around).

    I would recommend to stop doing that if it makes you uncomfortable; in any case you shouldn't do it often

    If you're ever worried just ask your Dentist / Orthodontist.

    Oh gosh, be ready for pain

    I got mine last week and day 2 and 3 were really awful. But it gets better

    I have no pain at all now but they are clicking and it's worrying me slightly...

    You're welcome. I only had them approximately 15 months, but I felt the pain and inconvenience was worth it once they were gone.

    May I just ask you both, when did you start seeing your teeth move and changes appear?

    Yes you may...

    Well because my Teeth's were already kinda straight but a-lil bendy at the same time- It didn't really take long for my teeth to change. I only had my braces for 6 months.

    I realised that my teeth started to change in 2 1/2 months time.

    Hope this helps

    When you first got your braces how long was it until you noticed your teeth changing?

    I noticed my teeth change within just a few weeks. It will differ from person to person depending on where the problems are and how bad they are.

    I never thought the pain was that bad; but whatever you do, don't bite into an apple!
