how do you help toothaches from braces? my teeth hurt really bad because i just got two new brackets on yesterday. my teeth have never ever hurt this bad before not even when i got all of my braces on!!!!!!!!!!! what should i do?
First thing I would do is call the orthodontists office and tell them the pain you are having. An extra visit would give them the opportunity to reduce the pressure on the wire to the brackets. I am sure they will be happy to do this.
