Day 1 for me hurt the most. Maybe that's because I got them on early in the morning. Days 1-2 hurt. Day 3 slight pain. Day 4-7 sore. 3 weeks in and I still can't tear food.

They are exposed. I just got to wondering about this becuase one of the eye teeth started hurting this morning, and I was thinking maybe it was starting to move down.
Thanks

Upper Canine Questions

My two eye teeth (upper canines) have not descended out of the gum. There is not enought space for them to do so. I got braces last week, and they didn't bracket those two teeth. Instead, a spring thing was put in their place. My questions are: -What exactly do you call this problem? -With the sprin...

What are these?

I got braces on Monday. There is something I don't recognize on two of the lower brackets (both are a couple teeth away from the middle). On each one there is a metal rod thing pointing down thats tip is rounded off in a ball. It looks roughly like this: { } -bracket | -rod o -ball I am just curious...

Metal Taste in Mouth

I've had in my expander for about 2 months. Just a few days ago I noticed a metal taste in my mouth. The taste is only there sometimes. It has been off and on the past few days. The taste is very metallic like a battery. Does anyone know what this is?

I don't think ceramics are an option for me.

Colors

Hi, I'm 15 and will be getting braces on in late October. I was wondering what color/s are the least noticable. I don't want silver because that would just make my mouth look shiny and metallic. So just name me some of the colors that don't stand out. Thanks.

I'm 15 and have had my expander in for about a month. I don't know what everyone is talking about, but it hurts when they put on the molar bands, as it did when they fitted them as well. They shove the bands with all their force onto your already soar teeth from spacers. When you get it on, things t...
