Does Orthodontics treatment hurt?

You are likely to experience some pain and/or discomfort after the brace has been fitted. It can take a few days to get used to wearing a brace and in that time, you may find that your teeth feel sore.

The brackets and archwire can irritate your tongue, lips and inside your mouth and you may find that, generally, your mouth feels uncomfortable. Persist with the brace as any discomfort will ease after a week or so and your mouth will become accustomed to wearing it.

You may also find it painful each time you have the brace adjusted. If this is the case then painkillers can help to deal with this.
