My teeth hurt
how come my teeth hurt .when ever i press on them they hurt.i also can`t eat very hard foods.I just got my braces on 3 days ago and they are killing me when the pain stop
It is normal to have some discomfort when first receiving braces. This should subside in three to five days. If not, then call the orthodontist for an additional appointment, to see if there is something that he/she can do about it.
