First though, you have to eliminate the rubbing/friction for the areas to heal and dental wax works quite well.After a while, your mouth will toughen up and it wont bother you quite as much. If you cant find the wax at the pharmacy, then ask your orthodontist for some.
Last time I was at CVS buying dental products, I remember seeing the dental wax and it brought back these wonderful memories, lol!
I had my braces put on right before Thanksgiving weekend and so I couldnt get a hold of the orthodontist for 4 days and I thought I would die from the discomfort!
When I got sores in my mouth I just pored table salt on them went to bed wake up then there all gone When I got my braces on I only experienced pain once then never again I know Weird I still have them on and still no pain even when I get them tightened still know pain When I got sores in my mouth I just pored table salt on them went to bed wake up then there all gone When I got my braces on I only experienced pain once then never again I know Weird I still have them on and still no pain even when I get them tightened still know pain Am I the only one not getting mouth sores, but instead the braces are ripping gashes in my mouth?
It's not bleeding which is good, but any time I try to eat on that side of my mouth (And for whatever reason it is only my left side, the right has a few cuts) it is extremely painful and forces my to wait for my food to be small enough to just swallow.
My dentist finally did some research for me and prescribed dexamethasone. I get them in my throat too and I gargle with it and it works for those too! The solution is very simple yet it is so effective.
It's a liquid mouth rinse and I take a teaspoon 4x a day and if I do this as soon as I feel one coming on, it goes away within one day. I do get mouth ulcers occasionally i do not know the reason of getting them more frequently than others.
The mouth is just FULL of bacteria, it is one of the most bacteria laden areas of the body!
Be sure when you use the peroxide/water solution that you soak the area well and if there is any crusting or scabbing, be sure you use a soft, clean washcloth gently rubbing in circles to remove those crusty areas where they are scabbing up. You might try a little triple antibiotic ointment on the lip area-externally-after you swish with peroxide and water solution. Next time you see your orthodontist, have him look at them. I am a student in a business class and I am have come up with a business idea to help people stop braces cutting the inside of their mouths.
I'm sure you can find it at a pharmacy it's called " infalab magic tough brace relief"It heals it and relieves pain.
I personally recommend to take a little strip of a paper towel and fold it into a square.
Are you using any dental wax to cover the braces to prevent rubbing? It is a soft moldable wax that you can press over the areas that are rubbing.
