Braces teeth clicking and popping

#1 Post by butlerbulldogfan » Thu Aug 29, 2013 5:09 pm

2 months in now with my Damon braces and talk about a strange noise. This past week cant tell if its the wire in different places or a few of my teeth occasionaly make a clicking/popping sound. But it seems like its my teeth. What is that? lol

Well, to be honest, it probably is your teeth. I've been experiencing the same thing on and off since about week 2.

My teeth have been doing it since the second week as well. I enjoy playing with them, making them click. :)

The clicking and popping? No, it does not hurt me at least.

All my teeth are popping and feel squelchy. Don't even know where my bite is anymore. I'm in my 8th week. They are getting ready to float around don't mess with then too much. My bottom teeth feel tight and it's very hard to get the floss between them. I go in Wed for my first wire change. :huh: :yikes:

I've heard a lot of people mention this but I never had any clicking/popping, at least I haven't yet in my first ~5 months. I wanted to see what it was all about lol.

It's nothing terribly exciting... you just get to wonder whether or not you're going to lose a tooth with all that crackling :wink:

I've had the same thing happening to me since about week 2 as well. It wasnt painful at all until I got my chains on to guide my impacted teeth down...maybe its coincidental...?
Not sure if my impacted teeth are hitting my roots or what but its not very pleasant getting an unexpected POP anymore....

I had the exact same thing happen to me in the first few months of me getting my braces. As far as I'm aware your teeth are looser because your braces are moving and when your press them and they're popping they're being pushed back into their place. It just shows your teeth are moving. I personally hated it but found it almost impossible to stop pressing my teeth to get that clicking sensation.

I've not had it for quite a few months now though.

I had the same thing and noticed it with one very crooked pre-molar on the 2nd day. I freaked out and called my orthodontist and told me not to clench and play with it and that my front teeth in the upcoming weeks will feel even looser. I've now entered my second month and I'm used to it and teeth don't click as much anymore :mrgreen:
