Finally in braces - questions about pain

Hi all,

I have had very TMJ severe symptoms and have worn a permanent lower splint for the past year.

The first five to six months in the splint were extremely painful - things definitely got worse before they could get better. Happily, things started to improve after that and finally after 9 months, things started to be consistantly good.

Got my braces in yesterday (upper and lower self-ligating brackets with ultra light force braces and incisor blocks) and would love some feedback from anyone who has been through this process...

1) What kind of pain can I expect and for how long?

2) Did pain get worse from the level it was before braces?

3) How long until you start to feel good?

4) How long can I eat Haagen Dazs for meals before nutritional or weight issues come into play?

Really appreciate your information and support!

Re: Finally in braces - questions about pain

I'm not familiar with the terms you are using unfortunately - but I'm fitted with braces (self-ligating with ultra light force wiring) used fairly successfully to treat TMJD in current neuromuscular dentistry.
