My 13 year old just had her 2 baby k-9's pulled out and they went in and exposed her adult k-9's that were growing impacted. They put a button and chain on the adult teeth and hooked it to her braces. That was done on Thurs. 7/26, here we are 7/29 and she is running a fever of 101-102, is that normal? I can't call her dentist until in the morning. She has laid around for 3 days now. I'm worried about her.

  • I got my braces on a few months ago, I've noticed that when my braces get tightened I feel sick with low fever, head aches and shivers, it is the same sensation from a flu symptoms. It seems to me that those side effects are uncommon but possible.

  • Getting fever after an orthodontic treatment is a normal thing to encounter. You can take paracetamol and also inform to the dentist regarding the same and don't worry as the fever will subside in a day or two. The cause of fever is the pressure put on by wires on the permanent tooth. Also continue with the course of medications that has been provided to you by your dentist. If the fever and pain doesn't subside in next couple of days then schedule an emergency visit.For more info visit the link...
