Do braces hurt? Nervous about getting braces?
Getting braces placed on your teeth is virtually painless! However, most people experience some minor discomfort for the first four or five days after starting braces and after each adjustment. During these infrequent periods of tooth tenderness, over-the-counter pain relievers such as Ibuprofen or Tylenol, rinsing with warm salt water and eating softer foods are effective at reducing discomfort.
We are here for you.
