Thank you all. I am getting a bit more used to it. My food is still getting stuck up there but at least it has stopped cutting my tongue. I can't pronounce 'k' words either! Have some trouble with 'm' too! As both my dog's names start with 'k' it is difficult to call them now!!! :)

I'm getting used to it slowly. Struggling saying any words that have a 'c' or a 'k' sound but I'm hoping this will ease. My tongue still hurts buts it's not as bad as it was.
Thanks guys. Hearing your stories makes me feel like I can do this. :)

Thanks for that. Good to know it eases off after a while. My tongue feels like i'm chewing a razor blade at the moment! :(

Keep the information coming. Much appreciated. :)

TransPalatal Arch (TPA)

Can anyone tell me how long the TransPalatal Arch (TPA) has to stay in for. I was prepared for the braces but not this. It is so uncomfortable and food keeps getting stuck up there. Is there any way to ease the pain its causing my tongue?
