Docs, when they put spacers on your teeth for braces does it hurt?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: 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.
