Depends


All depends on what is causing the soreness. Generally warm salt water rinses are soothing. Avoid spicy foods and any foods that are hard or crunchy. If it is gum tissue or ulcerations, then you need to see your dentist for evaluation , diagnosis and treatment. Avoid overuse of anesthetics (benzodent , etc.) as they can make it worse. Good luck.

OTC Pain meds


For typical orthodontic pain, OTC pain meds usually cover it. Things like Tylenol, Advil, Motrin can relieve the discomfort of braces. In my practice I have found that Motrin works the best. Just follow the label instructions and you should be fine. If the pain continues, contact your orthodontist, as there may be something else wrong.
