Patient Advice

Is orthodontic treatment painful?

It takes time to adjust to the feeling of your braces. You might experience some discomfort for the first few days after treatment.

Some patients may experience some slight tenderness for the first few days as their teeth start to move. You may also find you feel some discomfort when your braces are adjusted.

If you experience any pain or discomfort, we recommend using pain relief such as Panadol or Nurofen to improve comfort during the initial treatment stages.
