Pain and Orthodontic treatment

Discomfort experienced during your treatment should not require the use of prescription pain medication.  The use of over the counter analgesics, e.g. paracetamol, should be adequate in controlling any pain experienced.

After the completion of your treatment, the most common complaint is not one of pain, but rather of discomfort relating to lifestyle changes that are necessary.  Lifestyle adjustments that can be expected is a mild change in your diet, as well as much more intensive brushing.
