Orthodontic problems can arise for the following reasons:
Using lollipops for a long time,
Early loss of baby teeth due to cavities,
Grinding of teeth (bruxism),
Trauma caused by a fall or impact
The use of orthodontics eliminates the problem of crowded teeth in the mouth. By using orthodontics, teeth that are trapezoidal, and irregular in shape can be brought back to their original form.
During the first few days following the procedure, your teeth may be sensitive, especially if you put pressure on them or bite into hard food. This sensation is normal and inevitable during the period of initial tooth displacement. Subsequently, once the treatment is underway, this sensation may still reappear during wire and appliance adjustments but will diminish between orthodontist appointments and tends to dissipate more quickly than after initial installation.
If the discomfort is too great, we recommend using a mild, non-prescription pain reliever you are used to like Advil, Tylenol, or whatever you usually take for a headache.
You can also rinse your mouth with warm salted water (a teaspoon of salt in a glass of water) to reduce sensitivity until you are used to your devices. The devices can sometimes irritate the lips, cheeks, and tongue, especially at the start of treatment.
