If you do the following things, you will be able to eliminate the pain and return to your normal, everyday activities in no time:
-Rinse your mouth with warm water as often as needed. The warmth should relieve some of your soreness.
-Only eat soft foods for the first few days following your appointment. If you eat hard foods, you will only make the discomfort worse.
-Try to use your teeth as much as possible by chewing often. Chewing might make your teeth sore now, but it will make you feel better faster.
-Take pain medication as needed. Feel free to take Tylenol or Advil—just make sure to follow the instructions on the bottle.
-Call our office and schedule an appointment with your orthodontist if the pain persists longer than three days.
