ORTHODONTIC PAIN 

Braces are beneficial to correct misalignment, prevent pain/gum disease & boost self esteem. Teeth move through a biomechanical process called “bone remodeling.” This is a slow & controlled process using force with constant pressure. Placement of braces is usually pain free. Afterwards, mouth pain occurs from the slow tension of shifting the teeth. Initial soreness lasts about a week & repeats with each adjustment to the arch-wire. Braces can exasperate mouth sores at an alarming rate. This is caused by constant rubbing of metal & orthodontic wire against the soft oral tissue creating raw abrasions, resulting in activities like speaking/eating to become very difficult.

"I had braces put on in December and was unable to eat due to tooth pain and mouth sores. My friend suggested that I try the pops and even brought a couple over that night! They were exactly what I needed! Thanks!"  - W. B.
