    I have a brace with an Arc for the last six months- i have cut my tonsils it seems as they is a bright red line. I cannot open my mouth to full capicaty any more with out my mouth hurting i think it could be due to my Arc.

    Has anyone else had similar problems?

    you really do need to see your dentist. i had a brace with a bridge and it kept cutting my tongue. ts possible that your brace is not the right size and so you will not get the full benefits

    Get in touch with your dentist asap, see if they can fit you in. If you are in any pain with braces (ie not the usual 'teeth moving' pain you would expect) then you need to go back and see them. Have you looked at the brace, can you see any obvious changes, eg have you lost a bracket or has the wire come loose?

    If you are in a lot of pain and its an emergency, I think you could go to a dental walk in centre, you dont need to be registered there (if you cant contact your usual dentist). Just keep trying and see if you get through.

    put your fingers in line, vertically, and see how many you can get in. you should be able to get three in. if not....

    ...well, get back to me if you can't and i'll go from there. if you can, it may just some joint pain, in which case glucosamine/flax seed oil may help.

    You'll be waiting for 3 years on the NHS. Just give yourself a 'Glasgow smile' with a stanley knife or a pair of bacon scissors.
