What to do when your teeth hurt from braces?

Lots of good tips...
  • Swish saltwater between your teeth.
  • Stay away from ice cream, and other cold stuff
  • Eat applesauce, and more soft foods
  • Take some motrin, tylenol, etc.
  • Brush your teeth 4 times a day, lightly, but dont underdo it (esp. the gums)


Other than that, just bear through it! Also, you could stop at the nearest drugstore and there is this numbing stuff for your gums. i was told it worked very well. Just remember- your teeth will look beautiful after the treatment is done!☺
