Re: Braces rubbing and sore question

Im going a simillar situation, ive had my braces for just over 2 months and for the first time since being braced my mouth is cut up. No canker sores but cuts from the wires that are over the gaps from extractions. Not fun at all!! i say that teeth movement would also play a role too. sigh!

Re: What do you feel....

Rather than the back of the archwires into the back of my mouth i noticing more the brackets at the front. No pain or aches at the time of writing this, and no ulcers yet! (that was my biggest dread when reading up pre braces)

Re: i think i am going to eat less:)

For the first week or so, i was hesitant to try and eat anything but soft mushy food. Ive been braced for close to 2 months now and im finding im getting more 'Adventurous' with foods.

My case was a bit more difficult as i already had a tooth removed at least over a year before i finally took the plunge with braces, this ...
