Do Braces Hurt? What to Expect

Do Braces Hurt What to Expect WNY Orthodontists Free Consultation

When you or your child are getting braces, there can be a lot of questions. It is normal to be nervous about getting braces on. One of the most frequently asked questions that we get from people is about whether braces hurt to have. To learn more about the pain associated with braces, please call our office right away to set up a free consultation.

Will My Braces Hurt?

This is the question that sits heavy on the mind of someone who is about to head to the orthodontist to get braces. They want to know what feelings to expect. One thing that can help ease your worries is that we aim to provide you with treatment that does not cause you extreme pain. We know that braces have a bad rap for being painful, but when they are done correctly, you should not be in pain.

Some minor discomfort is normal with braces. When you get them tightened or adjusted, it can cause some level of discomfort. We want you to know that that is normal and temporary. If you do experience pain, you should report that back to your orthodontist. When you cannot find relief from your pain with over-the-counter pain medication like Tylenol or a day of adjustment, your orthodontist can help you.

Pain should never be a prevalent feeling when you have braces. Your gums might feel a little sore, but that is normal and temporary.

What If I’m too Worried to Get Braces?

We understand that a lot of people have anxiety about seeing the dentist. If you are worried about having your braces hurt, or generally just the process in which you will have to go through to get braces, we can always explore the idea of Invisalign. We can come up with a treatment plan that considers your needs, worries, and goals.
