I have had the Damon braces fitted top and bottom to help straighten a couple of teeth and to correct my bite.

I had continual headaches until I had them fitted 5 weeks ago. The dentist "built up" two on my lower teeth - one on each side to stop the bite, I also wear a retainer at night to stop the bite together even more.  I have had no headaches in these 5 weeks which is wonderful but my lower teeth hurt where they are built up and I cannot break down any food. Anyone any ideas how long this aching with last?  I am 50 and was nervous at my age to have braces but will all be worth it in the end

Hi!  I'm so happy to hear that your headaches has dissipated!  When you say you can't break down any food, what do you mean?  Do you mean chew it?  Are the built-up teeth keeping your molars from touching, for example?  If this is the case, I'd really talk to your doctor about it as it's a valid concern.  When is your next appointment?
