     i got 11 spacers ,youll do fine 


     


  2. i have a total of 8 spacers! they hurt my feelings cuz i cant eat king taco):


  3. I have 10 spacers on my teeth right now.  They hurt soo bad, but if you just dont bite down and kind of just let your mouth be open, its not as bad.  It is pretty bad still, but im hoping it wont be as bad when i get the actual braces.. oh and no pain releivers work for me, only sleep did. 


  4. I have spacers on right now... O_o....lets just say they hurt....


    TIP: My orthdontist said gargle with some warm salt water(haven't tried yet).


  5. my frickn teeth are so sore... i miss cereal so much :'(


  6. I have eight in my mouth right now!!! I've only had them in for 5 hours, but they're hurting like a b**ch!!! All I've had to eat since then were some frozen blueberries to numb my mouth.. 7 more days of this???? what!?!?!


  7.  i am in so much pain and my ears sore.. hm that normal?


  8. OW OW OW! I have spacers too!!! They hurt so bad!!!! I only have to have them on for a week and i am on my second day! EEK. One of mine "fell" out last night and I put it back in myself by using some floss. >O< kinda like that <--- and just flossed it back in! OW!!!


  9. im scared im getting spacers again but i still have braces im going through this s**t twice?!


  10. i have spacers and braces on right now they hurt so bad. Having spacers with braces is a lot worse than getting braces. 


  11. At first I just got the braces at the top, and the spacers weren't that bad, but I just got the spacers for my bottom teeth today and they hurt like h**l. I think it really depends on how bad your teeth are because my bottom teeth are pretty badd, I don't think braces hurt quite as bad though. :P


  12. i just got my spacers yesterday(8) and they are painful i couldnt even eat my lunch in school


    so im gonna take some advil hopefully the pain will go down


  13.  I got 8 in this morning, all on the top. They hurt SO BAD. 


    I cannot wait until this week is over. The I'm getting appliance. :/


    It HAS to be better than this though.


  14. I have eight spacers at the moment, and when I first got them they hurt like crazy, but now, (my fourth day having spacers) I can honestly say the pain is getting better. For the pain, I recomend using a pain medicine such as Advil, and, of course, only eat softer things while they are in. But note, do not put a hot pack on your teeth. It may make your jawbones feel a little better, one of the main reasons you're hurting is because your gums are swelling, and heat will actually make that worse. Just put Orajel or a numming creme like that on your teeth and hang in there, just remind yourself that most people had to go throught this also.


    Best of Luck,

  15. Duh.


    to all the people who are freaking o ut because of the spacers.


    I have had mine in for 4 weeks now.


    yeah. they hurt the first few days but its not that bad.


    and if you take them out, you'll just have to get them put back in and that ALOT worse.


    just take advil and you'll be fine.


  16. i have four spacers in mouth 2 on the left and 2 on the right and they only hurt for 20 min when i first got them and they never hurt after that but it's hard to eat because for one thing your not sure if there food stuck in your teeth or it's just the spacers and i get worried i might accidently pull them out when i eat something :( .


  17.  I just got four spacers :( <br />
    Two on each top side! They are KILLING ME!


    Next week braces... :(


  18. i have braces AND 2 spacers right now i just got my spacers yesterday i got them bc i need a expander they hurt alot uummm rinse your mouth with warm water that helps a bit and tea works too if your allowed to drink tea hope i helped = )


  19. Your a toothless liar if you say they don't hurt. I don't give a feck who you think you are.

    I have been taking two 10mg Hydrocodone a day and they seems to keep the pain at bay.

  21. I have 8 spacers in my teeth got them in this morning and they hurt so bad. The 4 on the bottom are throbbing with the pain. Only ate pasta and that was sore.

    Its a horrible feeling. :-(

  22. same here...i got them about 3 hours ago
    it hurts like h**l
    im getting braces in a week..they better be better than this!!!
    awww...i feel like c**p...my mouth aches so baddd!!!

  23. i have 8 spacers in right now!!! Advil and ice cream helps me. and for food try pudding, apple sauce, jello, and mashed potatos. for braces and spacers :) good luck. on the third day they hurt like a m**o

  24. I just got back from the orthodonics and my spacers are KILLING ME!!!!!!She said try ice cream and im gonna try it.

  25. well, i just got braces. the good news: braces are 100 times better, so just wait until you get your braces.

  26. OMG!! i have my spacers on right now!! it hurts soo bad and i just wanna take em off!! but im just gonna get thru the pain and braces pain laterr...all i know is that after all this pain the result is goin to be beautiful! =D

  27. i have had two kindes of spaces in the past two weeks and now in one weeks time i will get my braces yay!!! for the first 3 hours it is pain less but after five it kills. i have so many asprins and ice cream i will explode! i all ways find sucking on some honey does the trick ;)

  28. shut up. you're being a baby! How old r u?

  29. I just got them, too. Get a medicine called Kanka, it numbs your mouth, and really helps. The only thing is that it only works for five minutes and you end up spitting most of it out, because you don't want to swallow it. We can go through the pain together!
    --Stick

  30. eat ice cream

  31. heyy i just got my spacers 7hrs ago and they didnt hurt so bad at first then like 1hr later they were killing me my teeth hurt and they r really sore i am tempted to pull them out but then i thought what is the point bc thn i would have 2 go back and get them put back in!!!  eat very cold things and done bite very hard eat soft thing such as ice cream and pop cicles and soup and anything else soft i do not recomed pain killers bc they usually dont work and just hang in ther i herd braces r 100 Timez better
    fingers crosssed i sure hope bc if ther not i thing i will end up crazy!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. take it out you can put it back in

  33. I got 8 spacers yesterday. Ibuprofen helps a lot!!! Sleeping and cold foods do as well. Also, my ortho said that rinsing with warm salt water helps your gums IMMENSLY but ice is really bad. No matter what don't use ice!! I have 9 days to go because that's when I could make my next appointment. It's hard to eat and I can't bite right at all. Soft foods for me... but ALL of my friends have gone through it and say braces are a TON better and that spacers are by far the worst part. So good luck! I know it's worth it.

  34. i have gotten spaces yesterday and they hurt as h**l i really cant feel my mouth i cant even chew that just sucks

  35. Hey guys, I remember when I had spacers, I think it's safe to say that they were the worst part of having braces! I used to pull them out and put them back in but don't do that! You'd have to get more in. I have my braces off now and trust me it's all worth it :) there's nothing really you can do besides eat warm and cold stuff. Soup and ice cream.

  36. O  LORD HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  THYE HURT ALL THE NERVES EVERYTHING MY TTEETH FEEL LIKE THEY WANT TO DROP OUT  THERE SO WIGGILY AND TENDER MY MOUTH HUM SULK SULK HUMM SOMBODY PLEAS BEAR THE PAIN WITH ME EVERYONE IS CHEWI AND CHAPPIN LIKE COWS WEEL I HAVE TO BE EATING THINGS WHOLE .!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!IM GOIN TO PULL DEM OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!6 DAYS TO GO *TWITCH ,TWITCH IM TWITCHING CUZ IM GOIN MAD!!!!!!!!!UGHHHHHHHHHHH HELP MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. I just got Spacers today though i got only 6 of them (Though they thought iwould need 8) And because i only have 6 its not so bad just alot of pressure but there is a constant dull pain like everyone is saying... but just take some pain medicine and we all get through it !(I will try to.. but prob fail XD)

  38. LISTEN PEOPLE! SPACERS KILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE THEM!!!!! UGH UGH UGH UGH UGH! I CAN GO ON AND ON AND ON! I CANT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT! DONT GET THEM PEOPLE!

  39. welp i just got 12 spacers put in and i cant eat and its only been 8 hrs im scared of what tomroow will bring...but im getting braces in 5 days and ive my friends say it not as near as bad as theise stupid spacers

  40. i've had my spacers in for.. about  5 months. i get ta get em out in about a week. :D they don't hurt dat bad... d**n suck it up.
    i'm gonna get braces!!! teehehehe x]

  41. yeah it really hurts!

  42. i just got them 2 days ago and i cant take it. all i can it is pudding, ice cream, and jello. but unlike alot of you i have one week. cant wait

  43. so apparently i have a terrible and unusual crossbite, and i just got spacers in today. its just a dull constant pain, and its so annoying. i tried chewing, but all i can do i cut the food into miniscule pieces and drink cold milk with my meal.

  44. indeed. i just got 8 in yesterdayy and i want to cryyy! now i am getting 4 teeth pulled and then im gettin braces on so i am just taking advil every few hours. i think thats all i can do. i am going to be in alot more pain so i better just deal with these stupid spacers.

  45. I had 2 spacers put in today and I am lucky because I get them out on tuesday!
    My mouth still hurts like crazy though espesilly when I eat because those darn blue thing rub my gums.
    Its like rubbing floss in your teeth all day and night long

  46. i got 4 yesterday, they didnt hurt at all yesterday but today they are extremly sore, i had to ditch my cereal because it just hurt so bad, i struggled eating my bannana sandwitch, and my parent kept on tormenting me because they had just bought a big box of really nice bisuits that hurt really bad when i eat them =(

  47. YA i so feel ur pain. i really want to know if it feels the same eating with braces and with spacers. (I CANT EAT WITH SPACERS!!!) well spacers do hurt but im only able to EAT WITH 1 i say again 1 SIDE!!!! i would just take some pain meds because they hurt

  48. I feel your pain. i just got 8 spacers (4 top, 4 bottom) and they hurt extremley badly. Waiting for the sweet relief in a week. I couldn't eat my lunch or dinner and now its been at least 19 hrs since ive last eaten. ugh. torture. I suggest taking a few ibuprofen, swishing around some icy cold or warm water in your mouth or take tissues and put them on the sides where the spacers are in order to subside an quick clamping down of the mouth. Suck on ice or try and sleep.....hope i've helped. Oh and by the way.....the braces are going to be 100 times worse, my friend, i am sorry to say. The pressure will be killer and the pain will make you feel horrible. So i've been told by at least 10 of my mates. Hang in there.
    --Amanda

  49. O.o wow. I tried to explain this to parents and friends but they weren't getting it . . . It's nice to know i'm not the only one feeling this. oh well yh just hang in there mate. i only got mine in yesterday and i've only eaten bananas, hot dogs and chocolate mousse. Just think of the day you'll get em out. That's my plan! :) i cant wait for tuesday :)

  50. i have them right now, and the best thing i can think of to do is either drink cold water (and swish it around the spacers with each sip) or do something that will take your mind off it, like videogames, tv, relax, ...sleep.
    or both. and then take an advil or something once in a while

  51. i just got them like 3 days ago n i no they hurt really bad. i've been eating mac and cheese and mashed potatoes for the last 3 days. It hurts soo much! just hang in there! Hopefully braces dont hurt as much!

  52. I had my spacers in about 12 hours ago, it's pretty annoying. Normally I'd be able to suck it up, but I'm seriously hating the dull pain it's giving me :P

    I'm going to take some of these guys' advice and suck on some ice.

  53. i ammm going through the exact same thing..
    i have them in right now and they hurt sooo bad
    it feels like my teeth are being pulled out and i hate it
    i can't even like open my mouth up wide
    (i have 8 spacers in)
    my dad said sucking on ice will help but i might want to try icecream instead..
    earlier i took Tylenol and it didnt help at all!!!!!

    ughhh when will this pain end!?!!!?

  54. heres wut i did i just kinda took advil or ain stuff and i ingored it but if this doesnt help 4 u the at least i terid i have 4 in my mouth just avoyed hard food

  55. I got my spacer yesterday and it hurts.  I want to get it off my teeth. I am talking funny and I can't eat very well cause the food is getting stuck between the metal and the roof of my mouth.

  56. i got 8 spacers in total yesterday, 4 at the top and 4 at the bottom, and my mouth KILLS, it didn't hurt so much when he put them on, but now i feel like pulling them out. it sucks. i ate some ice cream and it totally helped, so i guess thats what i'll be living on.

  57. i just got them and they hurt, but not really bad i hope braces dnt hrt too mch

  58. i have had these stupid things in for about 4 days and my mouth is still killing me. i have to keep them in for about 2 weeks its hurts so much and the advil is not working i have done nothing but eat smoothies and its getting a little bit crazy ... any ideass????

  59. ohh i got them like 6 hrs ago and i can feel the pain just starting u can suck an ice cube but dont bite it tht will make it hurt more!!!!!!

  60. Suck on an ice cube. But beware, chew it and suffer far worse pain then your suffering now. The ice cube will numb your gums and help with the pain.

  61. AYE YALL ARE GIVIN OUT DA WRONG INFO I HAVE SPACERS RIGHT NOW TOO AND THEY SOPOSE TO HURT FOR 3 DAYZ STRIGHT CUZ THE SPACERS ARE MOVIN UR TEETH TO THE BACK SO THE DENIST PPL CAN PUT THE BRACES IN WITHOUT WORRRIN IF U GOT ENOUGH SPACE FOR THE REST F DA TEETH AND STUFF TODAY IS MY 4TH DAY AND THE PAIN IS STILL DER BUT U WONT KNOW TTHAT UNLESS U EAT A BAGEL.

  63. im going through it as well . man it hurts , all i have been able to eat is mashed poatato , ice cream and cereal . and its only been 3 days , i got 11 more to go . cant wait !!!!!!!!!!

  64. im going through it as well . man it hurts , all i have been able to eat is mashed poatato , ice cream and cereal . and its only been 3 days , i got 11 more to go . cant wait !!!!!!!!!!

  65. i just got them like this morning...
    it feels like something is stuck between my teeth,
    also feels like someone is pulling my teeth off
    my cheek kinda hurts too ..alittle.
    oh wellies
    at first when i got them it doesnt hurt at all, but after 5-6 hours, it started to hurt.
    now my jaw is kinda sore.
    i think i hav to eat icecream nonstop..lol. jkjk

  66. I have my spacers and they do hurt really bad. The best thing that worked for me was advil. Also drinking hot water and sucking on ice cubes!

  67. I am going through the same thing right now. If pain killers aren't quite doing the trick, try Oral B gum pain/k****r sore gel. A little on the gums really helps me. Be warned though, it causes quite a bit of drooling. XD
    Good luck!
