Take some Tylenol. The pain goes away in about 1 week to 6 weeks depending on how tolerant you are to pain and if its your first time getting them on. If it is your first time then take Tylenol and wait it out to 6 weeks and if its not it should go away within 1 to 2 weeks.
I have braces and "Motrin" helped a lot. I mostly just live with the pain and eat soft foods when it does hurt. the pain will end up going away soon. But it depend on what's actually in your mouth braces wise
I feel you! I got my braces on last year, try using sherbet or ice cream and put a spoonful against your brackets. Don't use Tylenol because research shows it causes memory loss when you get older. Hope this helps!!
I had braces for about half a year!! And here's what I did : *advil every 4 hr * orjil and hurricane it's a numbing medicine you cane get them at a pharmacy even walmart (: * and ice water !! It works well for numbing as we'll (: I hope this help!! Braces can be suck a pan but they get better(:!
When I had braces, I took a lot of pills. But only the amount that doctors recommend! Don't take more than what the bottle, that is holding the pills, says! Or something bad might happen! Don't massage it because I tried that and the braces just cut my mouth! Hopefully you don't have to have them on for two years like I did! It was horrible but now my teeth look great! <3 Good luck!
I just broke two brackets off and that really hurts but I use wax and Tylenol and other pain medicines and that usually helps. It also dePends on your tolerance to pain. Don't massage your gums try not to touch them believe me they will not even feel like they are there very soon until you get the m tightened. Rest only the food they say you can breaking brackets hurts and so does snapping wires or disconnecting wires from brackets. I ate skittles and that broke one and I don't even know how the other one broke lol. But anyway good luck:) I get mine off right before Christmas this year yay! WELL I'm supposed to anyway. Good luck again and if you snap a wire or bracket it's not the end of the world most places don't charge to replace or fix those! Ok I answered your question and give you advice so I hope it helps.
Clove oil (found in pharmacy) is traditionally used throughout the world for tooth pain. lidocaine/benzocaine applied topically (orajel etc) will also numb the effected area, but is associated with a rare condition leading to reduced oxygen in the blood....
Dilute the clove oil with olive or vegetable oil, as clove oil is very strong and may burn. Take care in how much you use, it's strong and undiluted can burn the skin. Once diluted apply to the effected area, do not swallow or you may get nauseous and dizzy if you do. Dental wax will prevent further irritation. I wish you luck with your tooth pain, good luck!
I have braces too, and they only hurt when they're tightened. Until the pain stops, I use Aleve or Tylenol to help a little. If they're poking you, put the wax the orthodontist gave you on the spot where its poking your mouth. Hope this helps!
Get a soft rag damp with warm water. Not soaked, and squeeze it out if you think that there is too much water in it. You need it to just be a warm damp rag. Then carefully chew on it. It might seem gross, but it does help. I have braces, and whenever I get them tightened I do this. It helps a lot.

I couldn't close my back teeth completely for the first week of having braces. But I took Ibuprofen and it helped. Benedryl should help too, but it will make you drowsy. Eat soft foods for the first couple weeks of getting braces on. And when you get your braces tightened or get rubber bands, also take pain medicine. Note that tightening and rubber bands should only make you sore for 2-4 days. Hope this helps, Good Luck!
Im 13 and have had braces for almost 2 years now. So unless they change the wires or something they don't hurt me. but when i first got them, thats a different story. Trust me, i was in so much pain that night but my mom would give me tylenol and ibeproufen. Which really did help reduce the pain. But if its also your gums are hurting try putting some wax on those certain brackets. Hope it helped!!
Is it pain from getting them tightened or from a poking wire? If it's from getting them tightened, about 30 minutes BEFORE your appointment, take a dose of Advil, eat something, and by the time you're in the chair, the Advil will start working. Then take the Advil as advised on the bottle. Try to stay ahead of the pain instead of chasing it. And if it's from a poking wire or bracket, use the wax. Carry it with you EVERYWHERE, every time. Wax is your best friend until the braces are removed.
I remember having braces. It was very painful. My orthodontist recommended Children's pain medicine for mild pain and Excederin Migraine for severe pain. I know that the metal will rub the inside of your mouth raw. The wax really helps and it comes of easy. After a month, you should feel a lot better.
Motrin, heating pad, resting the jaw, codeine if really bad. Thank The Lord I only wore mine two years. Best of luck, by the way I threw a party the day they were removed, I ate corn on the cob, chewed gum, and necked with my boyfriend or course I was 20 years old...

take Advil while standing on ur head wax your eyebrows off so you don't pay attention to the pain of your teeth have your mom wack you with a pretzel take some steroids chug a glass of water and see how you feel
if you are talking about gum pains, you can chew cloves, a dried piece of woody herb that numbs your mouth, or you can buy a product called "oragel" which has the same soothing ingredient. Then tylenol or ibuprofen for the headache.
Don't listen to anyone, pills aren't the best thing, what I USE is adult orajel you can get it from CVS or I think Walgreen, its a orange liquid inside of a tiny glass bottle, it helps a lot!! I know because I have braces myself!
I had braces for 2 years. And since i try to never take medications i just stayed away from tough food that would make my teeth sore. I drank a lot of smoothies and soup. Massaging your cheeks and jaw helps too. Or hold a warm cloth to your jaw. Itll sooth the soreness. Now if things are poking, use the wax things. If it doesnt help, ask your dentist to take a look.
Bite down really hard and then loosen up, it's like eating candy and then eating an orange, the sweetness of the candy makes the orange sour, so the extreme pain of biting down hard relieves normal pain
There is really no good, affordable way to reduce pain from braces. What I usually do is drink liquids,such as soup or smoothies, for about a week instead of eating solid foods, it doesn't help the pain, it just doesn't increase it. If you don't have braces on your 12 yr. molars yet, BE PREPARED, it sucks hard core! A tip on how to help that pain is just not to move your jaw side to side, and like I said before, this won't really help pain, it just won't increase it. When you first get braces, or if you've just gotten them tightened, brush your teeth very, very softly, you don't want to put too much pressure on those sensitive gums. Well, this is what helps me and I hope it helps you. BYE!
Ibeprohin works great for me, also use the wax that your orthodontist gave you, eat ice cream, and don't eat anything hard or chewy ( gum, tootsie rolls, lafy taffy, caramel, etc.) stick to soft foods. also gargle warm salt water for about 30 seconds when you get home after your braces have been tightened. that's what I was told to do When I first got my braces 4 months ago.
A million years ago when I had braces one spot hurt every time I had them tightened. I broke of the wide part of a toothpick and braced it under the wire to relieve the pressure. However I would imagine that braces are constructed so totally differently today that this might not work. It never occurred to me to take a pain reliever. We didn't do that in the '50's.
chew gum and take an advil if your bracesare [poking you, you can can go to a pharmacy and get wax avoid eating hard foods and try not to gring your teeth you can eat soup,smoothies,applesauce, and possibally pizza
It takes a while to do it i have braces myself and it takes time to make it go away, just stay away from eating hard food and soon it will feel like you don't have them, no worries just also take some Advil and make sure to take care of your teeth
