Reducing Braces Pain
Wearing braces can be quite painful sometimes and the Dynamic Dental Team wants to give you three useful tips to reduce the pain.
- Ice will work in your mouth just like it does for other injured parts of the body. If your mouth feels sore after your braces are tightened, try applying a cold pack to the area or eat some ice cream or other cold food.
- Just like a massage can ease muscle pain in other parts of your body, massing your gums with your fingers can help ease the pain.
- If you have pain in or around your jaw, then you can also use a heating pad to try and reduce the pain. This is especially beneficial if you experience unbearable pain and ice or cold food hasn’t been helpful.
