Having them fitted isn't the painful part, pain comes when:

Having them tightened (once per month) and the 3 day period after when you can't eat anything.
Even when you slightly catch your cheek skin in them.

Needless to say, you're in for a painful process but the results are well worth it. I'm just finishing wearing retainers and I'm hitting 22 this year. Hopefully you'll be done with all that when you're my age.

I had a brace and full headset, I also had to sleep in the ruddy thing. I couldn't bite for the rest of day, everyday, for six months. All I wanted was a packet of crisps.

You don't know pain.

Not really razz I don't go back there for another 10 weeks. October 6th. I only need to visit once every 2-3 months. Today I can eat soft things because the glue isn't dry yet, tomorrow still soft things, and then after that I can eat anything (though like for some things, for example pizza, I have to cut it up and stuff). Right now I'm going to eat some soup. smile

Annnnnd these are smaller, newer, and I don't have them in the way back where my cheek could get caught in them O.o

Oh and I only need them on for about a year.

The wonders of new techonlogy. razz

Hahaha, neither of you know pain. I once went to Italy for a few months, & while I was there I started having pains in my head, & bleeding, for a few weeks. I got a bit worried. Turned out there was this beetle (quite big) that had stuck itself to my head...well you can guess the rest. Ugh.

I told this story to some girls at college to impress them, & then one week when I was ill they told people in my classes the story as an anecdote. When I came back to college, the story had spread & everyone thought I had been unwell that week because I'd been attacked by beetles.

I bet I have you all (well, maybe not er-no) beat when it comes to pain.

When I got my wisdom teeth pulled, the doctor missed the nerve with the local, so it didn't work, so I had 4 teeth pulled with nothing to stop the pain. The same thing happened once when I had foot surgery.

and there's this other thing....it involved my stomache breaking open, and some intestines spilling out into my body....that's all I'll say.

Even though, that beetle story is probably the most hard core of all the stories smile

eek... jesus!

Anyway, I had some retainers for two years, finished about 5 months ago. I didn't really follow the ruels or anything, I just drank cola and ate whatever I liked. Only twice something got loose. And it only really hurt in the first one or two weeks. And the results are still great! biggrin

Don't worry, you'll be allright!

I hate the dentists....

I was due to have four of my back teeth pulled, when I was about 12 or 13 I guess. They knocked me out for it, and I woke up to find that they'd decided to take out five. For no real reason, as far as I am aware. They did, however, give me the teeth to take home. Which was nice of them.

That wasn't so bad, untill I went home and fell asleep straight away. A few hours later, my parents woke me up to inform me that the white pillow I had fallen asleep on was now a lovely shade of red crazy I went off to the A & E where they decided that the bleeding wasn't going to stop by itself, and had to call an emergency dentist in to give me stitches to the gaping holes at the back of my mouth (note: having stitches in the back of your mouth is NOT fun).

I've still got those teeth somewhere - and if you look at em, there's chunks of jawbone attatched to them. Which is nice.

Cheers,
Arktic.

I had braces on all of my teeth for two years, then had invisalign retainers for 6 months, and now, 7 months fter the process, my overbite is back, by bottom teeth are crooked, and my two front teeth are spaced apart a few milimeters. Life sucks.

Everyone seems to be forgetting Er-No's epic knee-shattering in Feb 2004..... I would definitely designate THAT as pain.

I've never had braces and I'll never need them, and I'll probably get my wisdom teeth pulled stun next summer. I have though split my head open twice. Once while playing hockey and once when I fell off of a playground toy, hitting my head on the base post. Both really bloody. Also, one time, at football camp, I got a really bad bloody nose in both noses, they almost had to cauterize the blood vessels. None really hurt though. Probably the worst pain would be twisting my knee in football, man that hurt.

Most people don't have room in their mouth for wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are like massive molars that come in after the 12 year molars. So around 15-17 is I think the normal time period.

This is one of the strangest topics I've seen here.

None the less I've had a good deal of pain in the dental area. I had 2 teeth pulled when I was younger, but that was nothing.

A couple of years ago I had a fernectamy (might be spelled wrong). Basically they had to snip this skin attaching my upper lip to my mouth because it had settled far down into my front teeth. They only gave me novaicane during that, so I was completely aware and awake the entire time. Not a fun thing to sit through, as my leg was shaking frantically the entire time. My mom was actually there when they did the surgeory, and said she almost passed out watching it. Afterword I was coughing up blood the entire rest of the day. And while I had the stichtes in for a couple weeks, I was not supposed to lift my upper lip up because it could cause the stiches to come loose. One of the cools thins though is that now I can move my upper lip very high and make a sweet looking face.

About a year ago I then had to go through getting braces. Bleh, braces suck as you all know. I also had an expander that I had to crank every morning and evening which kept my teeth sore constantly. Its a pain to eat with that thing.

The worst thing though was about two months ago. I have an impacted tooth (never came through, growing in the wrong direction) so they had to perform more surgeory on me. They basically pulled out my old fang, then drilled up into my gums, and glued a bracket to the tooth that was stuck up there. They gave me novacaine and laughing gas. Man I love laughing gas. I was so happy and relaxed, the doctor was like okay we're gonna drill into you now, and I'm like sure w/e man. I remember during the surgeory that it felt like a lot of water was dripping down my cheek but it had a rather odd taste. I later realized that was all blood gushing and splashing from my mouth. The surgeory itself was pleasant since I was under the influence of Nitrous Oxide, however as soon as I returned to normal my mouth had extreme pain, and I was coughing up blood for a few hours.

Now it is all healed but they attached a chain to that bracket to pull the tooth down, and everytime I go to the ortho they tighten that chain that goes up into my gums. The tooth should be popping through soon hopefully. In about another year I can get these damn things off.

All in all dental work is a nightmare, but I'm glad I'm getting it done because my teeth already feel straighter and my smile will be perfect when its over. Nuff said, braces suck... smile

Wait, how many noses do you have?


I've never had any dental surgery, or fillings, or teeth removed, and I've never had to wear braces. And I have near-perfect teeth.

Just thought I'd drop that in there.
