    Hon, if you're pregnant, whether braces hurt getting put on or not.. that's not the thing to worry about pain wise

    Oh, how did you get the ceramics at the bottom?? My ortho said he wouldn't do that, so I have metal!

    Default Braces when an adult

    I have has them for 7 months now - ceramic on top and metal on the bottom. I didn't find then painful really at all. Not even when tightened ... I just feel a bit of pressure for a few days - doesn't stop me eating though :/

    Although I just recently had my wisdom teeth out and that was pretty paid free too. The only thing that bothers me is sometime the end wire gets stuck on the inside of my mouth.

    Hope it all goes well!!!

    My teeth are relatively straight except my bite is horrible & my back teeth are twisting because I had teeth at the back removed. My ortho did the bottom ones too i didn't even ask I just said clear LOL.

    It didn't hurt, except i'm finding my teeth sensitive and food feels strange

    Adden- Bet you can't wait to get them off!!! I just kept asking so many questions like how do I do the bands etc, but still ages for me lol.

    theboys- lol i'm still eating too pizza and all...
