Honestly, if you think that your teeth are OK and there is no damage to any brackets, there is very little your orthodontist can do for you. The tissue inside your mouth just needs time to to heal.

My problem is different. I need to gain weight and don't have many choices now because of braces and also because I am a vegeterian. I will try Ensure drink now.

I am also now paying more attention to the way I dress. I try to dress in such a way that the focus is not anywhere near my mouth or teeth. I try to wear little light colored clothes, have colored my hair lighter, go with the hair style which suits my face with braces etc. In short, I am doing more ...
