Dear Blogger Friend Who Got Braces: The pain will subside....eventually

Wendy said...

aww! Are they painful!?! My 13 year old neighbor was over here crying the other night because she just had hers tightened!! She was begging for drugs ...her parents were out:( I hope that yours starts to feel better soon!

I feel for mine in 5th grade and I still remember the pain!

Pam said...

I echo Punchy, the pain will lessen and go away eventually.
I hated the taste of it but that gel stuff that numbs your mouth really helped me cope at times. Maybe they make it flavored now or something.

I've never had braces but can imagine they are uncomforable - to say the least! How about a combination of Advil and chocolate to numb the pain?? : )

I never had them but both my kids have, Shane still has his on. They switched something on his wires and his teeth were sore for a week. Good luck and takes lots of motrin!

You could have gone to Disney World. Just sayin.

It's been 13 years since I had my braces removed, and I think I remember that pain a heck of a lot more clearly than the pain from giving birth just last year. I feel for you!

(see? I told you I'd comment eventually...)

I wish I could wear the braces for you to help with the pain! This is really weird, but I had braces twice (as well as a few other dental procedures so far) and I LOVE dental work and the soreness afterwards. It just doesn't really hurt to me. I look forward to going to the dentist. And, when I had braces, looked forward to having them tightened. I KNOW. WEIRD.
