Missing papilla from braces?

I had an impacted canine that had to be pulled down from my gums. The other canine was in the roof of my mouth and had to pulled from there. When they were being pulled into place the surrounding gums were very sensitive and would bleed easily. Now I have a small piece of papilla missing. It's not e...

Re: What are your worst braces symptoms?

[quote="Oversmite"]I'm only a week in, but still have sore front teeth :( so still no biting solid foods for me! -MM[/quote] You'll find that biting into things is hard throughout the time you have braces on. It's easier when your teeth aren't so sensitive but your teeth aren't as strong as they wer...

Re: Inside of my mouth won't heal?

Me too! I'm so glad I found this forum because I'm not the only one! The information about braces online and even what orthodontists say isn't always true for everyone. Try sleeping with wax on too if you don't already. You can buy over the counter gels that help with the pain, they're for mouth sor...

Re: Dryness Under Lips

I experience this too! It was bugging me today. I think it's irritation from the braces rubbing against your lips and cheeks. I think it's worse when you talk a lot. Use wax on the teeth that touch your lips even if it doesn't hurt. And use it all day even sleeping, only take it off when eating. Hop...

What are your worst braces symptoms?

What is the worst thing you've experienced with braces and how long did it take you to adjust? Did new symptoms pop up thoughout your treatment? And if so, when did they occur? I'm curious to see what other people are also suffering from!

Re: Can my earache be due to elastics?

It could be. Even when I get my braces tightened one of my ears hurt. It's kind of a throbbing feeling. I think if it were an ear infection it would be excruciatingly painful and the canal may be swollen. Does it hurt constantly or just periodically throughout the day? If it's random, pay attention ...

Re: Dry mouth from braces

Thanks everyone for replying! I was freaking out because if you google dry mouth it says it could be caused by something serious! Glad it's a normal and I'm not the only one. I feel a lot better and I think the stress was making my dry mouth worse! But my mind is a lot more at ease now. I'm so grate...

Dry mouth from braces

Hi, I was wondering if anyone experiences dry mouth caused by their braces? I have ceramic or clear braces and I've had them for 1 and 1/2 years. Lately I've noticed my braces digging into my cheeks in a place they haven't before. It's toward the very back where my molars are and on the right side o...
