Pain is relative: But the answer is mostly yes - there is some discomfort and annoyance - something has been wedged between the teeth and you have been instructed to leave it there undisturbed . Tylenol (acetaminophen) / advil and the like are generally sufficient to help alleviate the symptoms. Hope this helps.
