Well yesterday was the first “tightening” on my braces. I’ve always considered myself to having a high pain tolerance so I wasn’t too scared about the “aftermath” feeling. Well, what I discovered is that braces are in a whole new ball park. I may have a high pain tolerance when it comes to filings and root canals and all that jazz, but my teeth being moved my pressure seems completely different.
Yesterday evening, my two bottom teeth became extremely sensitive. I couldn’t chew a single thing… now that’s hard coming from this girl. I love food! The rest of my teeth don’t seem to bother me though. I guess the high pain tolerance helps out at least a little.
So this morning…with my bottom 2 front teeth still sensitive….brushing my teeth was an epic fail! The back side of the tooth brush some how got rammed into…guess what?…one of my bottom front teeth. At that moment, the world ended. I can’t believe how much pain it caused. Dang it! And I was just brushing normal. Geez Louise!
Do you have braces or have you had them before? Let me know a bad experience you had. 🙂
