Do you ever wish there was a way to prevent or dull the soreness you feel after you’ve tightened your braces? If so, our Memphis Orthodontic Specialists, P.C. team is happy to grant your wish! There are many things you can do to make your orthodontic treatment more comfortable, successful, and beneficial, and those things are:
-Rinse your mouth with warm water.
-Only eat soft and easily chewable foods.
-Take painkillers to relieve the discomfort. It’s generally recommended to take Tylenol or Advil—but only as directed on the bottle and only when necessary.
-Try to chew as much as possible. The more you chew, the faster you will feel comfort.
-Call our office and schedule an appointment with your orthodontist if the pain does not go away after three days.
If you use these suggestions and try to relieve your soreness as much as possible, you will have a better experience and you will find comfort in no time. For more information and details, please call 901-767-5415 today and talk to Dr. Scott Werner or a member of our team. We are here to help you in any way we can, and we will be happy to give you the information you need to have a positive and successful orthodontic experience. The sooner you call Memphis Orthodontic Specialists, P.C., the sooner we’ll be able to help you!
