Teeth are soooo sore after braces adjusted

So I just had my braces adjusted for the first time this week, and my teeth are sooo sore. On one of my bottom brackets the ortho attached a wire to the bracket and my arch wire. What is this additional wire, and why is it making my teeth so sore? Thanks.

Hey, it's perfectly normal for your teeth to feel sore for the few days following an will get used to it after a few months though.

The wire your ortho attached is just replacing a ligature or put over a ligature in order to have more pressure and have more control over the movement of the tooth in question.

Remember to ask questions to your's important that you know what is going on and why things are done the way they are. I wasn't doing that in the beginning and I am slowly beginning to ask feels good to know and understand the things that the ortho has to do in order to achieve a certain tooth movement...

OTC pain relievers will help alot.

Another friendly piece of advice.. never get your braces tightened when you're expecting your period! People around you will not like you! LOL
