Pain. - May 19th 2013, 12:25 AM

HEY GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! .

OK, so I have had braces for about nine months now and I have noticed that whenever I do an adjustment or have them tightened, as some people may know the process as, THEY CANE LIKE HECK! .

Yesterday I had an adjustment and he did something special with this adjustment. See I have a canine tooth embedded in the gum, you can see it but it is stuck in the wrong position and it was causing me massive pain inside the bottom of my mouth (in the gum). So what he did was he put a little thing and attached it to the tooth, so that would gradually drag the tooth back into position (with a touch of hope).

Now since that happened a couple of days ago, the pain has escalated and it is really bad now.............. how do I deal with the pain of adjustments and especially this one? .

Hey Hamed, they told me to take ibprophen or Tylenol. Ice or popsicles might also help or you can use the gel that rubs onto your gums and makes your mouth numb.

Pain after dental appliance adjustments is pretty normal. I recommend benzocaine (Orabase, iirc) or kava kava for numbing/local anesthesia.

Aww sorry it hurts so badly. I recommend taking ibuprofen. For me, it helps headaches, aches, pains, overall it's magic.

Ibuprofen or Tylenol & Orajel. (orajel specifically.. it numbs whatever area of your mouth you rub it on and it's amazing. It's the only reason I'm not constantly in pain from my wisdom teeth coming in. I don't know what I'd do without it.. Haha)

Also cold drinks/popsicles/etc.. will help some of the inflammation as well.

If your like me advil/tylonel/ibuprofen (what ever version or variation you want, but basically those kinds of mild over counter pain killers) do fuck all for you. Seriously, didn't help me at all, at least not enough to make it worth my time, so I usually skip pain killers unless it's bad enough to warrant the "real" stuff (by prescription) so what I think the best solution is to just to try things like icing it, its one of the things that consistently helps me with pain even if it's only temporary.

If the pain is unusually severe try calling your dentist and make sure everything is moving right. But as someone who had braces for 3 years I can agree with other posters, pain is 100% normal during times, I would often get new hard ware that would hurt, it's not just for the first time the braces go on. But call your dentist if it seems to bad ok

Thanks so much for your responses guys, I'll take those all on board for the future . It got better now and the only pain I have now is a mouth ulcer . The worst place to have a mouth ulcer, RIGHT in the front of the bottom lip . But yeah.......... my sister gave me Advil for something, I can't remember what it was, but it made me nauseous LOL, guess it's different for different bodies .

Anyways, I salutes 'ya for 'ya replies . Sheesh, I sound like this dude .

Just FTR, Orajel = benzocaine. Definitely works for mouth ulcers / cold sores as well
