Tony Cigno, Wisconsin family dentist, shares how to fight braces pain.
Greenfield, WI — October 17, 2016 — Wisconsin Dentist Tony Cigno recently published an article titled, “When Braces Hurt! Simple Tricks to Fight Braces Pain…”
In the article, Dr. Cigno starts off by explaining, “Essentially, braces work by using varying degrees of pressure to move the teeth in the mouth. For most types of braces, part of this process is getting braces tightened or adjusted. ” This is what causes braces pain.
He adds, “Even with the more recent dental braces advancements that perform this function in slightly different ways, the pressure and actual movement of teeth can cause at least a slight bit of braces pain. And in some cases, for some patients, braces pain can be more (or feel like more) than slight discomfort.”
The good news, however, he says, is that there are several easy tricks to fight braces pain. He then goes on to outline some of these including the use of anti-inflammatories, drinking or eating something cold, holding cold compresses on the outside of the jaw, eating only soft foods, utilizing special numbing rinses or gels, and dental wax or comfort strips.
Dr. Cigno also reminds the reader to just remember that this pain is fleeting and the results are worth any temporary discomfort.
