I've been in braces for 6 months now, and haven't really experienced any pain until my last adjustment. I got bite turbos and brackets put on my very back molars and between the weird bite, pokey wires, and additional jabby metal these last 3 weeks have been miserable :cry: I've been dealing by using advil, salt water rinses, and wine certainly doesn't hurt :)

I honestly haven't really had much pain since getting my braces. I'm 2 months in. But I do have high pain tolerance.

That said, last appointment was kinda brutal tho, I had poking wires and blood ulcers. But nothing to the point where I need to take painkillers.
