I got my braces yesterday and i thought hmm it doesnt hurt at all. THE PAIN STARTED TODAY


I have my braces for almost 4 years now and this is the video I watched on how I brush my teeth with braces on. Still does it until now. Thank you! <3

Cindy Rangel:

Tip to anyone getting braces!! It shouldn’t start hurting until the very next day so that night when you’re about to sleep, take some Tylenol or Ibuprofen. Take some every six hours until you feel like everything is okay! My orthodontist recommended me to do this!

Zeen Ali:

I got braces today and it feels like World War III in my mouth. 😢

Helen of Troy:

I got metal braces for the first time in mid-July, 2020, after my TMJ dentist discovered my chronic lack of sleep was due to a dangerously restricted airway. I am sixty-four years old. In addition to my braces I wear a custom orthotic made by the dentist designed to keep my jaw in the correct position to open the airway, so this treatment is literally saving my life. (Lack of oxygen leads to risk of stroke and heart attack). Sleeping much better now. 😌

Julie Oh:

I got my braces done yesterday and I was like- wait this doesn’t hurt at all, but now its killing me 🙁 and I feel like I’m not brushing and flossing well, so I spend 30 minutes on that lol

Priya Martin:

I was kinda afraid to brush my teeth on the first day..I thought the arrangement may come off.Anyone else .Just curious


Had braces for three years now, COVID set back many appointments, my teeth are straight, but it’s been sooo hard to take care of, today they found a hole on the side, and teeth were beginning to decay(even though I brush twice a day and floss), I was close to a root canal, but I got very lucky, basically what I’m trying to say is really take care of your teeth, or else more pain will come, like cavity removal and fillings

Mohsen Jowkar:

Beautifully explained! I have all these things,I actually have a pouch to keep my braces kit😁 I had to search about everything particularly,in this video, everything is summed up!👌

Ashley Schuyler:

I have had my braces for 2 weeks now and let me say it does get easier after the first several days. I still had some soreness the other day when trying to eat chicken so I’m making sure to cut everything up small. I was so hungry the first night but all I could drink was protein drinks. I have been eating soup and smoothies and tbh peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are so easy to eat if you take pieces off and put it in your mouth and by having lots of peanut butter it keeps me full longer. Just some tips!


I have my dental kit for about 2 or 3 months and i haven’t used anyting in it as my dentist never told me how to use these things. Thanks for explaining the use of each.
BTW flossing is not really easy.I tried it after watching this video.
