Just got braces and I'm miserable
« on: 06. November 2018, 07:34:03 AM »
I found this site to commiserate with fellow brace wearers, but it seems like this site is more for fantasy and kink? I'm quite surprised.

I have TMJ/TMD and an impacted canine, and braces were recommended to me to fix those problems. I'm about to lose the baby tooth that is below the impacted canine and that's pretty much the only reason I decided to go ahead with braces, though the chance that it will work is slim because of my age.

Braces are so expensive, and I just got them on and I'm miserable. I'm in so much pain and I can't eat. My mouth is all cut up, and I'm already sick of mushy food. It's going to be a long two years  :'(

Good for you to finally move forward and get it handled.  I remember when i jumped on the train to fix my underbite at age 25 in which i ascertained my 3 set of braces and a very intense jaw surgery. I was wired shut for about 3.5 months and it was rough.  It was hard to even breathe the first week or 2 and the pain was gnarly. Finally after a while I adapted and time flew by, I also got sick and tired of liquid diet.

I am elated with how my jaw turned out and the results over all after all the suffering.  Just keep reminding yourself that it will end and things will be great to where you will have no regrets.  How old are you if you dont mind me asking?

Most of the people here have had or would like to have braces. Those that have braces got them by choice, not everyone because they really needed them. Many of us to have a fascination with braces. If you do not feel comfortable here, I apologize for that. There are many people here that can give you advice about how to get through your time in braces.
