I got my braces on today and an expander jeez this hurts!!?

I have taken as much medicine as I can and tried bite wafers, talking, chewing sugar free gum and nothing helped with the pain, everything just made my teeth hurt more, just touching my lips to my teeth hurt any thing that can help the pain??

    Talk to your dentist. Possibly he can give you some stronger pain meds for a couple weeks till your mouth gets more used to them.

    Homeopathic has pain meds that work; arnica, ruta, hypericum was the 3 in one given to me by my holistic dentist.....I never knew of them til I was older.......

      drugs are dangerous and can cancel out natural healers, I only mention it, so you won't be surprised by taking both and you're still in pain.......
