Do braces hurt?

Posted on March 4, 2016

Once your braces are in place and connected with the archwires, it generally takes 12-24 hours to start feeling some discomfort (if any).

Our high-tech brackets and light wires are much more comfortable than the traditional orthodontic experience. You may feel some soreness of your teeth for a couple of days after a new wire is installed, but this is completely normal! If you experience discomfort, try taking over the counter pain medication and eat softer foods for a couple of days.
