Does getting your braces tightened feel the same as when you get your braces first put on?

    Yes. The feeling is pretty similar in that a force is pulling your teeth. It might be uncomfortable at first but it will settle down after a couple of days. Don't worry - just take some painkillers before your appointment. It is not at the appointment you will feel any pain, rather just an ache afterwards.

    no not as bad , it just hurts when you touch your top teeth with the bottom but that will soon go away dw

    getting them tightened can hurt more depending the severity of the tightening
