Re: New Braces ADULT - Sore throat
I can't answer your question one way or another, as I've had Invisalign, but not metal braces. From what I remember, the Invisalign didn't cause a sore throat in my case, though I did have canker sores on my inner lip/cheek across from the attachments, and where the plastic met my cheek. Have you shined a flashlight on your throat? Do you think maybe you have canker sores back there? I've had canker sores on the back of my throat before (though not caused by a dental visit or by Invisalign), and when I have canker sores on my throat, I feel like I have a sore throat. I tend to get them when I eat/drink anything acidic, when I sing or talk excessively, shout, or just when I'm stressed out, so perhaps it could be that. Or maybe you caught something a few days before you got your braces.
