How to Deal with Painful BracesMany people suffer from painful braces. If you happen to be one of those people, this article is for you! We will discuss the different braces that cause pain and how to deal with it. It's time to stop living in pain and start living life!

What Can I Do To Reduce The Pain?

There are many things that you can do to reduce the pain. One thing is having a healthy diet, especially one with soft foods. Soft foods help since they don't scrape against your braces as much as more complex foods like almonds or carrots. In addition, it would be best to keep up on oral hygiene by brushing twice per day and flossing once per day when possible. If none of this works for you, try using over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen or Tylenol. However, consult your doctor before doing so!

What Causes Painful Braces?

There are a few different types of braces that can cause pain. The most common type is traditional metal braces. These are the ones with the metal brackets and wires. Other braces that can cause pain are ceramic braces and clear aligners, such as Invisalign.

How Long Will My Braces Take To Heal?

The amount of time it takes to heal will depend on many factors such as age, overall health, oral hygiene habits, eating patterns, and more. Also, it's important to remember that everyone heals differently, so there isn't an exact timeframe when someone can expect their teeth to stop hurting after getting braces placed onto them! Some experts claim that most individuals have fully healed in two weeks, while others say it could take up to six months.

How Can I Reduce The Discomfort?

There are things you can do to reduce the discomfort when wearing braces, such as: keeping your teeth clean and healthy by brushing twice per day and flossing once per day; eating soft foods; getting plenty of rest; taking over-the-counter medications (consult a doctor before doing so); using cold packs on your face every few hours for quick relief; rinsing with warm saltwater throughout the day - be sure not to swallow!
