Me, too. I got them as an adult, but my ortho didn’t warn me about a lot of things in advance. After the way they were put on and adjusted or bonded, I was not expecting them to be taken off with what looked like a pair of pliers. Two acetaminophen before my appointment was all I was allowed to take, and it was still painful.
After exceeding the two years she’d originally estimated, and getting my hopes up to have everything done before a major holiday, my ortho informed me that she’d only planned to take half of my braces off. This was after she’d already started the work, and I had been looking forward to a normal meal for weeks. I didn’t have any weapons except my eyes and my voice when I told her to take out the rest, but it worked. I was able to enjoy a nice holiday meal, and got a lot of compliments on my smile.
