I had them for two years. The tightening never hurt me, though. None of it did.

I'm on my fixed braces. They are my third brace. Before that I have had twin blocks, and before that a retainer. Before my braces I have had other treatment over the past few years.

There's always someone worse off than you. :ton:

5-6 years ago i had braces. i hated getting them tightened because they would hurt so much that i couldn't chew my food. plus my orthodontist was a complete a-hole.

If you've only got them tightened for the forth time they're still pretty new? The first months in having them are a real *****. I used to cry after getting them tightened because I would try to eat and I would be in so much agony. The pain also felt like itching or something. I hated my braces. Had them for almost 3 years. Got them off in February. They are totally worth it though. I love my perfect teeth. I can never stop smiling! :D

I never had braces, but many friends of mine had and I know that it hurts. But be strong. You know you'll be ok soon :)

Belfastard, please don't bypass the censorship.

Mine don't have to be tightened. I have these ones called Damon and all you need to do is put in a new wire everyone like six weeks. I don't have to go to orthodontist as often as people with the other kind either. The wire runs through the brackets instead of the front;no rubber bands. Expensive, but worth it. I have to have them for two years, and the new wire is just like getting it tightened. Hurts like hell. I can't chew for about two weeks.

It'll be okay. It's not that bad.. Think of how perfect your teeth will be when they get off. That's what I look forward to.

I had them for 2 years, never worked for me, they were a total nightmare, so much pain, like the metal wire was so sharp and would poke me in the skin, it hurt like hell when the wire catches to your skin, i'm talking about the excess wire on your end teeth, they never trim it down properly, anyway after 2 years had them taken out, was worthless if you ask me, still have crooked teeth...

Yes. That also happened to me. I would always wake up with blood in my mouth.

Well, i know the worst of it is over, the orthadontist said the first 6 months are the worst, he predicted i need them for about another year. I can't bite at the moment!
