Aren’t sore teeth annoying? If you agree, our Uinta Orthodontics team has some tips that will help you have a better and more comforting experience when you align your smile with braces.
If you’re tired of having sore, sensitive teeth when you finish a tightening appointment, then we recommend doing the following things so you can have the comfort you deserve:
-Rinse your mouth with warm water.
-Eat soft, chewable foods for at least the first few days following your tightening appointment.
-Take pain reliever, like Tylenol or Advil, as directed on the bottle.
-Chew as much as possible. This may be a bit painful at first, but the more you chew, the faster you’ll feel better.
-If the pain continues after three days, call our office and schedule an appointment with your orthodontist. Your orthodontist will be able to examine your smile, identify the issue, and provide you with treatment right away.
If you do these things, you will be on the right track toward a more successful and comfortable orthodontic experience. For more information, tips, and details, please call (307) 789-8742 at your earliest convenience. Dr. John R. Schouten and our team are more than happy to help you in any way we can. The more you know about orthodontics, the better!
