In this video, I will be answer the question of "how to deal with orthodontic pain?"
I start off by describing that orthodontic pain can be divided into two categories: 1] dental, which is the pain related to your teeth and 2] soft tissue, which is the pain related to your gums/cheeks
To manage dental pain, I recommend doing everything you can to decrease inflammation.
This includes eating soft food and keeping your mouth as cold as possible by eating cold foods.
Also, anti-inflammatory medication can be used but they do slow down tooth movement.
