That's good that you're taking some meds! Your teeth are shifting and straightening so you are going to feel a lot of pressure and yes it hurts sooo much! I still remember that day. I ate mashed potato, jello, and pudding for about a week or two! Use some wax if the metal is rubbing against your cheeks. Good luck! Hope i helped.
the orthodontist used to give me that dental wax, it helped quite a bit.
take some medication....like Tylenol 3 or oxycodone
It takes TIME for them to stop hurting. Take tylenol. The pain goes away after a while once your lips and teeth get used to the pressure and weird new objects in your mouth.
I just got my braces on a month ago and i beleive thats normal. My teeth felt sore and achey. My braces also began to rub against my right cheek which bothered me. If your problem lasts over a week co sult you orthodoniat because its a problem with your braces.
its not ur braces that are hurting.
its ur teeth.
they are shifting.
ur teeth r bones so its like ur bones r moving into a certain position.
i kno how u feel because the day i got them i was in a lot of pain.
i regretted it at the time.
take ur pain meds & dont over dose.
ull get used to it soon & it shud feel better in two days or so.
after u get them off, ull have perfectly straight teeth & u wont regret it.
just do what ur orthodontist tells u.
ull be just fine & ull love ur new smile.
