I just got my braces yesterday and I feel an horrible pain,what should I do?

For how much time I will feel this pain?????

I just got my braces 4 months ago. I will only hurt about a week, but you should take some pain reliever and don't eat lemons!!!!!!

Cheer Dad Deluxe
It used to take a week or so then it goes away...what the killer was for me is the adjustments every month- tightening the wires to pull the teeth together...urgh!

its just me....♥
When I had braces I used Chloraseptic spray or lozenges...It worked GREAT!! And as for the pain, it only lasts a few days, Good luck!

Take tylenol, asprin, whatever you use regularly. It will hurt until you get used to them and then it will start over again every time you get them tightened. Make sure you get wax for those pokey wires.

I have never had braces, so I don't really understand what you are dealing with. But when I have tooth pain, I put an aspirin between my gums and my cheek and let id dissolve. This help tremendously. Hope that helps. Good luck.

don't put too much strain on your teeth. try not to chew gum and bite into things. no ja breakers or anything. and im sure if you used some ice or tooth medicine it would help. but really.... it shuould go away in a few days.


stay strong

pain killers, sleep, and soft food
the pain will go away within the first few days
HOWEVER - you'll go through this ever time they are tightened

just mwa!!! ♥
i got my braces when i was 11 and i did not hurt the day i got it it hurt the next day if it hurts when you bight put your tung ther for confurt try asprin

I have had braces since about September 2005, so I know what you are going through.
It does hurt and it hurts everytime you get them tightened, it is something you just have to get used to and is worth the pain because of the final look.
The pain should calm down about 2-4 days after the installment.
The best thing to do is to sleep or take pain killers.

I feel your pain, I got mine in a two days ago. Have no fear, take some tylenol or advil. The otrtho should have prescribed you some medicine for your pain. Just eat really soft foods and take your medicine as prescribed. It should be okay within a week or so. Dont worry you will be okay.

The braces usually hurt the most in the first month you are wearing them. The pain WILL subside after a couple of weeks. In fact believe it or not, one day you will actually forget you are wearing them.

In the mean time, rinse your mouth with warm salt water, use plenty of dental wax or dental silicone (Ortho-Sil), eat very soft foods that are not hard to chew, take some pain killer if you can (acetominophen or ibuprofen), and try to relax.
