    Pain killers for one, best start ever!

    Then try eating a really cold yogurt, easy to eat and the chill on your teeth will help a lot!

    Try taking some Tylenol, but read directions first to find out dosage and how often. Another thing you can try is Ambesol. It's over the counter and doesn't cost too much

    I feel your pain..

    (I've had braces for almost four years)

    Taking Tylenol, or something similar, is the only thing I have found that helps.

    Pain killer. I had my braces off four days ago. My teeth hurt after it came off too. So just painkiller

    one resort would be a prescription drug or another would be to check if the bracers are to loose or to tight the easiest thing i would do it try to sleep and have water in my mouth if i was awake like carry a water bottle around

    drink water. when i first got braces i drank so much water cuz the pressure on the when i was sipping it felt good.

    keeping yur mouth open helps too even if yu look like a complete retard hahah (:
