How long did your braces hurt?
 
Just got braces both upper and lower teeth at the same time yesterday. Im starting to experience some pain in my teeth especially in lower part.

I wonder if how did yours hurt and also how did you deal with it??

Mine hurted a little for a few days, more annoying than actual pain though

They usually hurt bad the day after they are put on and after orthodontist visits where they adjust them. I had times that I could only eat like soup or like malts or soft things for 2-3 days then it gets better till the next visit.

They sucked pretty bad for maybe the first 5 days but then they were fine. When you get them tightened they might hurt for a day or two. Also, if/when you get rubber bands those will probably hurt for 2 or 3 days.

1-2 weeks after you get them on. A week after the first adjustment and it stops hurting sooner after each adjustment that you get.

I got them a couple of months ago and they hurted for about the first week then my mouth got used to them. I took some ibuprofen when they hurt and my mom got some Colgate Mouth Sore Rinse that helps with the sores you get with braces

Ive had braces for other 6 months now, I get them tightened up every 6 weeks.
They dont hurt for too long. Probably a week max. Avoid things like: crisps, freezing cold food/boil hot food. Basically anything rock hard (sweets) for about a week after that you wont even notice the pain and will probably forget you actually have braces. I cant even feel mine :)

Hurt a few days at a time for me. As per benlodge123, whenever adjustments happened, it would feel uncomfortable for a while; but got better again after a few days.
