I have been wearing braces for about 5 years now.
When you have been in orthodontic treatment for such a long period of time, you may notice things like, "This is painful," or "Oh, this is a typical orthodontic situation.
I have to be careful about what I eat, or how hard it is to correct myself in such a situation, etc.
I will leave you with five such painful things about braces (there are orthodontic things).
- Five things I found hard about wearing braces.
- Painful experience with braces 1: Immediately after putting on the braces, the braces hit various places and hurt.
- Painful thing about having braces 2: immediately after the day of adjustment, it hurts like fainting in agony.
- Painful experience with braces 3: Loxonin doesn't work like a charm.
- Painful experience with braces 4: I can only eat tofu and yogurt while in pain.
- Painful thing about having braces 5: The rubber turns yellow when I eat curry.
Five things I found hard about wearing braces.
(The type of braces we are talking about here are the ones where the orthodontic appliances are placed on the surface of the teeth.)
Painful experience with braces 1: Immediately after putting on the braces, the braces hit various places and hurt.
Orthodontic appliances are generally called brackets, which are attached to each tooth.
This hurts when I first put it on.
The flesh on the back of my cheeks or the back of my lips hurts when I hit the bracket.
Eventually, it would become a mouth ulcer, and when I ate, I would hit the mouth ulcer with the food.Super painful.The following is a list of the most common problems with the
After a week, the area of the mouth sores (where the brackets are hitting) will get used to the brackets and the mucous membrane will become stronger, or it will stop hurting, but until then, it is hard.
Painful thing about having braces 2: immediately after the day of adjustment, it hurts like fainting in agony.
While wearing braces, I see the doctor once a month or every three weeks, and this is when the wires are changed or modified. They can be tightened.
The doctor would use wires and rubbers to correct how much the teeth had moved and how to move them...............................It was very painful for a week after this was done.
It is this UP period that people doing orthodontics say is painful and painful.
Of course, I couldn't chew food because of the pain, and even though it was just a painful tooth, the pain doubled when I chewed while eating. It was painful every time.
Painful experience with braces 3: Loxonin doesn't work like a charm.
Loxonin is sometimes prescribed after dental work or for pain relief.
And since it was prescribed during my dental treatment, I thought it might help with the pain during orthodontic treatment. So I took it, but in my case, it didn't work as if it did.
I wonder if there are different types of pain.
For post-adjustment pain, you just have to wait for it to ease naturally, which in my case was always a week. I always felt that the week was just painful and long.
Painful experience with braces 4: I can only eat tofu and yogurt while in pain.
During this adjustment period, of course, they cannot eat hard foods like rice crackers, fruits and vegetables like apples and cucumbers, or even bread.
The food was painful too. I am.
So I always ate only yogurt or tofu for the first week after the adjustment.
So you will lose a little weight during that period. Because I physically eat less.
As a girl, I appreciate it...but when I can eat normally, I'll be happy and eat a lot, so I'll go back to the way I was.
Painful thing about having braces 5: The rubber turns yellow when I eat curry.
When you attach the wires to the brackets, you fix a rubber to each bracket.
To prevent the wire and bracket from shifting, and vice versa.
But if this rubber is transparent or something, it turns into the color of curry or coffee.
Recently, these rubbers come in a variety of colors, so if they were colored rubbers, there might not be such a concern.
Transparency is more prone to discoloration.
Also, fine food gets stuck. It clogs up a lot.
It's super hard to make hijiki stew and other small things.
I actually experienced that orthodontic treatment is actually a lot of pain. I mean, in percentage terms, it was 70% painful.
But I can put up with this for the sake of clean braces, and once I get used to it, I can alleviate some of the pain (as painful as it is).
And when I see that my braces are gradually getting better and better, it makes me feel like I'm doing my best, even though it's hard.
It all depends on how much you want to accompany your own teeth. Whether you can endure it or not.
