Keller, Braces, Soreness,TX
Braces generally don’t hurt, however they will make your mouth sore for a few days. The soreness stems from the added pressure on your teeth which allows them to shift. The good thing is that this pain doesn’t last for too long! Soreness can be alleviated by rinsing your mouth with warm salt-water. All you have to do is take a teaspoon of salt, stir it into a glass (8oz.) of warm water, and rinse! If pain persists or increases you may want to take some Advil or Tylenol.
