dental care


Question by  dradke (2)

I just got braces and a permanent expander that I turn every other day. I can barely talk and I have ulcers on my tongue and the insides of my cheeks. What can I do?

I am 40. The expander has been in place for four days.

You have mouth sores because your mouth is still adjusting to the change. Once scar tissue builds up on the spots the metal is rubbing, it will be better.

It sounds like this could be a valid problem caused by the dentist. I would schedule and appointment with your dentist to have it looked at, and mention all problems.
