Gum in between Bite Turbos

Hello all,

My ortho put on turbos 8 months ago when I first got braces to correct  my overbite. Since then, a piece of gum has been protruding between the 2 turbos.  It shrinks every time it nears tightening time, but then grows after the braces are tightened. What should I do?

if your ortho gave you rubber bands WEAR THEM !!! Warm water / ice cold water help with the pain. 1 thing is that your teeth are moving and you gums are sore  and are the bite turbos even when you bite down ???? if they aren't they might have been put on wrong!?!?!?! wax helped me the sores in my mouth went away (snap) just like that.Give it a try See much more at:
