Common orthodontic concerns
Tenderness after adjustment visit?
It's normal to have some mild discomfort for the first 2-3days following an adjustment visit as your teeth get used to their new positions.
We suggest: Panadol or Neurofen or Aspirin as needed. Eat soft foods and cold drinks can help.
My bite feels funny!
To get your bite to its stable, end result, there may be some transitory bite changes. We will prescribe orthodontic elastics to help you achieve the stable bite as quickly as possible.
If you are experiencing any jaw pain, or functional limitations, please call us.
