Will It Hurt

Will My Child Feel Any Pain?

Your child may feel a little sore when treatment first starts. This is usually due to the teeth being moved. Usually, this will last about 24 to 72 hours.

They may also feel pain when their braces get adjusted or tightened. Also, they might get mouth sores due to the braces rubbing against the inside of their mouth. If this happens, have them rinse out their mouth with a saltwater solution which will help them heal faster.

Normally, they will feel less discomfort or pain as they progress along their treatment. If they really feel uncomfortable, you can try pain medicine such as Tylenol (or any acetaminophen) or Advil (or any ibuprofen).


★★★★★ In my opinion, Dentistry For Children NV is one of the best Dentist Practices in Las Vegas. Dr. Dennis Clark and his staff are the best. They treat you like family and have a genuine interest in your wellbeing. I used to hate going to the dentist because of feeling like I was just another patient. All of which, went away when I scheduled my first appointment with Dr. Clark.

★★★★★ I came to Dentistry For Children NV fleeing from my previous dentist, and it was the best decision. Dr. Clark was very professional and caring and listened to my concerns that were not taken into account at my previous doctor. The office was very clean and orderly and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and you can tell they take not only dental hygiene seriously but cleanliness in general as a big priority.
