Hi..its common during initial days after putting braces. Ask your dentist to give wax it will help and start applying pansoral gel four to eight times on the ulcers. Regards

A few ulcers do form in the mouth where there is friction between the braces and oral tissue. The best way to overcome would be to use sugar free chewing gum and stick it on the area of the braces where there is constant friction. These ulcers are usually self limiting and would remain there for a week. During this period its better to be on a bland diet. Spicy food will hurt you and increase burning sensation.

With braces u may get ulcers in areas where it is hurting you but you seem to have ulcers on tongue edge that's possible but u cannot have in throat area due to braces..kindly take vitamin bcomplex for some days and apply mucopain gel before eating on the ulcers avoid hot spicy stuff..get checked by ENT once.
