If heating pads are not available the alternate thing which will be helpful is warm wash cloth .
Salt Water Gargling:

Normal warm salt water gargling or rinsing will help in minimising some sort of pain. Swishing for around 60 seconds is enough to reduce irritation.

Gum massage:

The force we apply over the tooth also exerts the pressure in the gums.This will create a pain during tooth movement.In order to avoid it we can  try our gum massage which means we have to just apply our finger pressure over the gums to massage it .

Soft diet:

In between the dental visits of braces treatment,pain may occur due to change in wires. During these days, intake of raw vegetables and coarse food will be difficult. So , its better to take softer diet such as smoothies, yogurt, soups, mashed potatoes.

Orthodontic wax:

The orthodontic wax can be placed over the braces in the areas of irritation.

Mouth guards:
