That's what you get for having it so easy when you first got the braces on! :twisted:



That is exactly what I am afraid of!! Had no real pain in the beginning.....but I have a feeling my fair share of pain will find me soon enough!! LOL

Re: What do you feel....

I feel my braces more than I have in the 3 months I have had them!! Could it be movement that has changed my mouth so much that I am feeling them more? My cheeks are sore..my lips are sore! Not terribly...but this is the most discomfort I have had! :roll:
