how to reduce pain from rubberbands?
I got rubber-bands yesterday and they hurt like hell. I couldn't sleep last night. I tried sucking on ice and it doesn't help. It only hurts when i put them on when i take them off they hurt. My rubber-bands are 1/4 (6.4mm).

You can try using whatever you would take for a headache ~ Motrin, Tylenol, Advil.
The rubber bands are moving your teeth in a way they haven't been moved before. It's only the second day. You need a few days for your teeth to get used to them.Source(s): Orthodontic assistant with over 30 years of experience.
