Take a combo of two excedrin and two tylenol. It should do the trick.

I used to put warm water in my mouth....

tylenol or advil are your bestfriends. or you can try putting cold or warm water ona washcloth and biting on it. that what i did and it helped me a lot..

I'm not sure how old you are, but do take a pain killer like Advil or Tylenol. Read the instructions on dosage. That's really all you can do. If the braces are cutting your mouth, use a painkiller gel like Anbesol.

If you are talking about the pain of the teeth and bone, ask your dentist any pain releiving medication they recommend. If you are talking about the braces rubbing agaisnt your lips or cheeks you can try that wax stuff.

But don't worry whatever you do. The pain will go away before you know it, just ask the orthodontist to go a little bit easier on the spacers and adjustments next time. A day or two of mouth soreness is worth it when you see your new smile in the end.

Hot water in ur mouth works. Some people even do hot salt water. Not too hot tho, just warm. Lol

keep your mouth open a little at all times and if it still hurts take a really small ice cube and swoosh it around your mouth. It'll num it slightly and you won't feel it as much.

Tylenol, my friend (but don't overdose!). Other than that, you could try icing and then heating your mouth for awhile, but not for long of each because the wires will expand and detract with the change in temperature.

Ouch! I've been there before. What I did was take tylenol and swished warm water around in my mouth. Then I made soup so I eat, without the pain. Try doing something to distract yourself from the pain such as watch your favorite movie, play a game with your family ar text your friends. It will get better soon. Just remember to eat soft food at first so you don't have to bite down too hard. Good luck!
