    Has the ortho given her wax/putty? You could try bonjella or similar but honestly it doesnt do much, it really is a matter of getting used to them. Your poor dd it can be so uncomfortable.

    When sil had hers put on and even now when they are tightened she is in a lot of pain for a few days. Our orthodontist recommended the pain killers with codine, and ice packs on the jaw if its really bad. Sil said it helps take the edge off at least. She also sticks to soft and/or cold foods like soup, ice blocks, juice for a couple of days until the pain settles.

    Braces hurt when just put on or tightened....I remember living on two minute noodles and ice-cream! Ibrufen and codine is good pain relief but not much really helps those first few days.
    Even talking hurts...

    So this is gonna sound really weird.
    At my work (and most adult shops for that matter), we sell numbing lollipops. Usually they're to help during oral s3x but there's no reason they wouldn't help a bit to take the edge off if she just sucks them/sticks them in her mouth and let's them dissolve. We sell mint and cinnamon ones, but you might be able to get different flavors.

    Nurofen plus and super soft food.

    My younger sister had five teeth extracted at the same time and she was in a lot of pain.

    Regular nurofen plus, with panadol if she needed it. I made a weeks worth of soup as well which helped

    I have braces. Mine didn't hurt until the first tightening. I lived off soup, two minute noodles I HATED. Because getting caught in my teeth etc.

    Bread etc will hurt first few days, custard, all those sorts of things. Maybe even a yummy casserole
