The first few days after getting your braces on you will most likely experience some discomfort and soreness. This is perfectly normal! To relieve your pain you can swish and gargle warm salt water in your mouth for a couple of minutes.
It is also not uncommon for your lips, cheeks, and tongue to become irritated while they get used to the braces. If the issue continues, we can give you some wax to put on your braces to lessen the tenderness.
