Aches and pains
Whilst becoming familiar with your new braces, it’s likely your teeth will be sore for 3-5 days after fitting, but don’t panic, this is normal. Your brace shouldn’t be too painful, but aching is completely normal as your teeth begin to move.
They may rub against the inside of your mouth causing irritation, but you will be provided some orthodontic wax to shield any particularly troublesome areas once they have been fitted. If you feel discomfort, ask your pharmacist for advice on how to stop pain associated to your braces - you can take over the counter pain relief to ease the discomfort, ensuring you always read the information on the packet.
