I have had varying degrees of success with them and I know that they only last for a day or so. But what I want to know is how they actually make your teeth less sensitive and are there any long term ...
Most of my friends who have braces, they don't need to have 4 wisdom teeth removed. Only a few have to have them removed. And I don't know if this depends on the person, or the Orthodontist?...
spacers...Herbst... braces... pain!!!?
okay well im getting the herbst appliance (look it up if you don't know what i is) and im also getting braces all on january 28th, and okay well a loooong while ago (like in december 17th) i had spacers and like they hurt but not too much for like the first 3-4 days and well yesterday i had another appointment and they had to place in bigger/thicker spacers in because they had trouble placing these metal things in to measure the shape of my tooth (like around it for the herbst appliance) and my new spacers (3 times the size of my old ones) hurt like crazy!!!!! like oh my god, i cant eat! and one spacer keeps cutting my tongue and the back left side of my tongue is like all bleeding and stuff, what do i do? they said it'll go away but ughhhhh, pain!!! and also teeth pain in general!! how do i make it stop!!! please help!!!
for the pain - pain killers. hit up tip Advil (ibuprofen)
and OMG the Herbst Appliance looks like something from SAW.
for the bleeding - if its super bad, place a piece of cotton over the spacer. or even get a rubber (latex) glove and cut a piece roughly 5x5 and fold it into a 1x1 square. place it over the spacer. but the cotton works best. If ur at work/school i recommend u talk to ur dentist top get something better.
