First it was Invisalign... no big deal... I mean, thin pieces of plastic can only push so hard, right?
...then it was braces. Okay... so I'm used to the Invisalign... and well, the braces are annoying, but no big deal. No problem.
So, go in on Wednesday and really feeling like I'm ready to be done with this whole thing, I figure what the hell... they haven't killed me yet... so I tell the doctors "Lets get this going! I want to be done! Gimme the hardest damn thing you got!"
BIG mistake. My teeth are KILLING me... if I could remove them, I would. I can't eat anything... chicken soft tacos were too much to deal with. A cheese quesadilla was easier torn than bitten into...
Where's the damn vicodin when you really need it?!?!
I remember how bad that pain can be. I feel for you. When I had braces, I used Orajel and Ibuprofen to deal with it. It'll fade in a day or two.
Soup is a good solution, but it'll pass in a few days.
*hug* Sorry you're in pain, hon. Looks like soup and shakes are going to be your friend for a while... I hope it's better by the time I get back, but if not I'll make you some yummy soup.
I had braces in high school. every time they got tightened I was on a liquid diet for a few days. I was supposed to have them for two years but since I was a good girl and didn't fool with them i only had them for a year and a half. The pain doesn't last forever and think how nice your teeth will look when they're done.

I always used to think of the pain as "my time of the month." I mean... you are cranky, in pain, and have diet changes on a regular monthly schedule. It is like menstruation without the mess.
